Living Stones


Rocks are everywhere in the Desert. Rocks are everywhere on our property. We have assorted colors and sizes; take your pick! We have rusty-colored rocks, gray rocks, blue rocks, brown, speckled and striped rocks. I think, I dream about rocks.

We decided to use the rocks we have dug up in our landscape. I place rocks around our plants and trees as borders. These water-wells hold the precious, life sustaining water inside the area.

We live in a harsh and unforgiving world. It’s so easy to see ourselves through the World’s lens.

But, God finds beauty in our rocky-selves.


1Peter 2: 4-5 (NIV) Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

God is forgiving! You are precious to Him just as His son, Jesus is precious.

You are being built up – The Living Water is inside you.

Look at your inner beauty – the beauty God sees.
