Sand Sculptures

Check out these pics from the sand sculpting world championship. It’s hard to believe that these works of art are only temporary.

I think of what Jesus said about sand…

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” [Matthew 7v24-27]

So is your life solid… or a sandcastle?

This is my favorite. (Click on the pic to read the words.)

    Really like this post, honey. Reminds us to be intentional in life and build up our lives on solid ground.

    It also makes me realize how fragile and minute we are as people. We can build beautiful masterpieces with the help and insight of others, but need to be prepared for the storms of life as well as resting sure we are on solid ground, our Christian faith.

    When the storms come, we will be ready to rebuild making another beautiful masterpiece that’s different from the first knowing we are supported by one another.
