Just A Stone. Or Is It?
One of my most favorite things to do
is spend time at the ocean.
I am not that much into the water
or the sun bathing - but I can spend hours
digging for rocks. - not just any rock -
but I am drawn towards the flat rocks.
The ones that will fit into the palm of your hands -
and as I hold these and look at these -
I can't help but think about how that small rock
was once a larger piece -
off a fabulous mountain somewhere -
how far it may have traveled - from sea to shining sea.
How the oceans beat upon that mountain
until a chunk finally gave way -
and then worked over - through the ages by the sand,
the coral, the other rocks, the waves, the storms.
Until finally nestled in the sand -
and dug out by someone like me
who admires and cherishes what it went through
to get to be the piece of beauty it is today.
I have jars full of these small rocks.
I think I relate to these small rocks in a odd way -
the Master polishes and grinds -
the fire is necessary -
the purification process is mandatory.
The hope is in the Glory that we will know when we worship at His feet.

"someone like me who admires and cherishes what it went through"......... "I think I relate to these small rocks in a odd way" I recall once having said that shoulders that have carried the most weight are the most comfortable place for others to lay their heads. I love this piece. Wonderful!
