Rocks

Jesus traveled to Jerusalem.  When he got to the Mount of Olives He sent two of His disciples to go and get a colt that he might ride it into Jerusalem.  I always thought it was a donkey, or burro  but the  King James says a colt.  Anyway  they went right away and found the colt right where He told them.  They borrowed  it from the owner by telling Him the Lord has need of your colt.  They took it to Jesus and  put him up on the colt and Jesus began the decent down the Mount of Olives.  His disciples and a multitude of people were shouting. rejoicing and praising God as Jesus approached .  The Pharisees were angered and asked Jesus to make the people stop worshiping Him.  Jesus said” I tell you,  if they keep quiet, the rocks will cry out.”  Luke 19:40  I have always loved this  portion of the Lords journey and often thought of His statement that the Rocks would cry out.  All of creation praises Him.  I  know  that but Rocks are so inanimate. I do love rocks though!  I have a collection because I think they are such a beautiful part of creation.  But I just could never imagine the rocks praising the Lord.

Recently I heard about something called  The Kindness Rock Project.  My granddaughter was painting rocks with little cheerful  messages and pretty pictures.  She told me its a national thing.  I  looked on the  internet and sure  enough I found it  and many  photo’s of rocks people had painted.  The intent is to hide a beautiful painted rock  along your path so someone might come along and be blessed. It is not just national,  it is international.   Guess what, I now paint rocks.  I hid my first one yesterday.  I found that many of  the people put scriptures  on their rocks and encouraging words to help someone along the way.  I am putting scripture on  the back of most of my rocks.   I worked on  these rocks with great joy imagining who might find my rock.  While I worked I thought of those rocks that would cry out.  So many  people are not praising the Lord, many openly making fun of the Lord and mocking Christianity.  It occurred to me that maybe the rocks are crying out.   With that thought I am super excited to paint these rocks.  I find it’s just another  way I can get His word out and praise the Lord myself.  Below is a picture of some of my rocks.  My printing is  not good but if they can read it I’m happy. My husband has even painted some rocks.001 collage (1)Rocks Cry

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
