A Collectible that R-O-C-K-S!

Sometimes one can find God unexpectedly in one of nature’s collectible items such as in a simple rock:

“I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from Him.

He alone is my ROCK and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.”
~Psalm 62: 1-2

It is easy to start a simple rock collection. Usually, a few steps outside will have you stumbling over a few, if not many, various rocks of different sizes and shapes. It is easier to find rocks living in country towns where dirt roads are as common as paved sidewalks are to big city towns, but, if one looks long and hard enough, rocks can be uncovered in the least expected places.

Heck, the easiest would be to go buy yourself a rock collection.

Now, once your rock collection starts to take off, finding ways to display your collection is also easy. For example, by adding a few river rocks to a simple prayer/meditation table it can help visualize the fortress, the Divine One made visible; the ROCK of safety, ready to shelter and protect during any earth shattering life storms.

Other people have used their rock collections for hot/cold stone massage, as decorative pieces in their rock garden and one woman I know fills her guest bathroom sink with small rocks she picked up over in the garden supply. Washing your hands over rocks brings a bubbling brook right into your own home!

So, rocks, as a collectible, can be an economical, practical and best of all, spiritually inspiring for those looking for a “solid” way to build a collection that R-O-C-K-S!

Simply Home-grown

“It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a home-grown tomato.”

~Lewis Grizzard

home-grown, tomatoes, fresh, produce, joy, life, nature, memories, thoughts, pleasant

vine ripened and delicious…


If not home-grown tomatoes, what fresh produce would you prefer to grow and later enjoy the harvest?


Hey, if you are looking for a cool place for inspiration, then my suggestion is to backpack every week over to Ailsa’s Travel theme: (this week feature is Food.)

SUNDAY POST: Blossoms–Raw & Nourishing

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust (Brainyquote.com)

On days when my brain decides a healthier lifestyle is in order, eavesdroppers can get entertained with silly notions from my rambling brain as it obsessively attempts to take me down the raw food highway. Check it out for yourself.

“Go outside and collect some blossoms from the garden, Sunshine. You know, the edible ones . . . make sure um, no pesticides or any animal has dropped its disgusting poop on it. There are plenty of apple and orange blossoms about and the squash blossoms always add a colorful treat to any raw salad.”

It’s time to take up the raw food lifestyle and you know it! Stop putting if off and for crying out loud, quit buying all that junk food! I’m the brain here and regardless of what body tells you, drinking coke and eating chips and chocolate candy bars are not going to wear well on you in the next few years.

Let’s see, I think this should be a good place to start . . .”

The ultimate way to start any day is with a tasty plate of fresh squash blossom salad and loving companions who bring much happiness. . . --Photo source: Google Images

May all your days be filled with charming gardeners that attentively work at nourishing your soul to blossom to its fullest potential!

Have you a favorite blossom(s) you like to prepare into your salads?
