Tired of attempting to grow a lawn under a tree with its invasive roots brought us to re-landscape that area with rocks. We laid out a pleasant shape and soon the delivery truck arrived, sliding out its contents. Rocks of various shapes and sizes tumbled out onto the exposed roots of the tree and what was once the grass trying to be part of a lawn.
The rocks, dusty and dirty all combined into one dull colorless gray. At the very least I didn't have to water the rocks and try to make something grow. And so the front yard was laid with a nicely shaped green lawn and a contrasting area of common rocks under the towering ash tree. Nothing earth-shattering, it just looked okay.
One day as I routinely unwound the garden hose to water a few potted plants, I decided to "dust-off" the rocks with a spray of water. The washing by the water suddenly revealed each rock, as distinctly different from the other! It was as if each rock were revitalized, showing its own uniqueness. What a wonder to behold what I once thought was a boring sameness became "alive" with various colors, patterns, shapes, some smooth, others jagged, some small, others bigger, all jumbled together, leaning one against another.
What a picture of humanity! We're all thrown together in some way or other. Yet, it's only with the common denominator of water is our individualness revealed! What a picture of Jesus this is!
I love each one I've created,
