They drank of that spiritual rock that followed them; And that Rock was Christ..
I Corinthians 10: 4
When connecting natures pictures
With key words from Scriptures.
The symbolism of the language...
I don't always comprehend..
Nor is it my intention to offend;
I try my best to encourage
And find the positive outlook
Of verses in the good book
To fit with the image...
I see Christ as the rock
Who gives me courage.
Poetry by me, AJP
My husband found this rock earlier this spring that came up from the earth as he was digging our little garden with a pitch fork..He remembered slicing through a rock several years ago with a rototiller which unbeknown to him at the time formed a cross from the blade. I just discovered it myself today outside and found out the story of how the rock was sliced into it that formed this cross.
I think it was meant for me to find this rock today as when I talked to my mother tonight on the phone who has dementia, she has completely forgotten now that I am her daughter or that she ever had a daughter by my name... Up until now she has remembered who I am. It is heartbreaking to hear my mother's confusion who used to be my rock to lean on...but I have learned to accept what can't be helped and I thank God for the good years and the influence she has had on my life.
