Spiritual Materialism

Just like many of us in our Western culture, I clamor for more things, I'll admit it.The things that entice me are art supplies.It's important to have a lot of resources to draw from to paint and enhance river rocks. The important thing to remember is that these things are used to put together the most beautiful, visually appealing rocks EVER!

When I began this journey it was all about appreciating the beauty in God's kingdom here on earth (and still is, for that matter). Beauty can be found in the many wonders we enjoy here.Rocks represent many things to me.As a kid, The many rocks I collected on the beach made me feel abundantly rich as I piled them up on top of one another.The weight, the smoothness, the shape, color and texture are intriguing to say the least.

Today, they are also symbols not only of prosperity, solidity, faithfulness and a host of other qualities, but a THING by which one can use for reflecting on these particular traits.

Rocks communicate security and strength to me personally.When I am feeling insecure, I hold a rock in my hand and imagine that God's protection and care are all around me. This has served me well to this day.I pray that I may not be overwhelmed by material things of earth, but to realize the spiritual nature which is at the core of everything in the universe.
