We recently visited Walden Pond and before I forget….I’m going to link up to Cee’s Shoes and Feet Challenge (these are my short stubby toes dipped in Walden Pond – yes Henry David Thoreau’s Walden Pond)!
And for today’s short Sunday sermon, I’ll link up to THIS excellent blog post from quite a few years ago. The author ends his article by asking:
What is your rock pile? What is the impact you are making on the world? What are the stories you tell that those behind you will be shaped by? The call of the gospel is full of this kind of promise: “Follow Me,” says Jesus, “and I will make your life extraordinary.” Our lives are imbued with purpose as we follow the Maker of the Universe who is calling us to continue to tell His stories. Stone by stone, our lives should be shaping the world.
I hope you go and read the full article. And I hope I remember those important questions every time I look at these photos I took at Walden Pond!
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
And here’s a close up of one of the little piles of rocks on top of the sign…spider webs and all!
Have a great Sunday!
A wonderful sermon!
Terrific post for this week’s challenge. 😀
