Castles in the Sand

I'm always delighted to spot a sandcastle as I walk along the beach. I know from experience they can take a lot of work. I also know they can be tons of fun.



The builder of this pyramid took the time to add steps.










Why do people build something that they know in a few hours the tide will wash away or some kid will stomp on and destroy?

Sometimes I think it's fun to put your creative juices to work with no long-term plan. Enjoy the moment of singing, writing or building a sandcastle.

Some people build with great detail, and others take the minimalist approach.




Colossians 3:23-24 (NIV)

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Whatever you do today, remember to work at it with all your heart whether it's existence is fleeting or eternal.

  2. Beautiful verse, Jackie. Since I was afraid of the waves, when I was a child, I loved to sit on the shore and build sandcastles.
