I wanted to write about why I chose Scattered Stones as the name of my blog. My family and I love to go up to the UP (Upper Penisula of Michigan for you out of staters) for vacations. What I have found about myself on these vacations is take me to any beach along the Lake Superior Shore line and I will come back with pockets full of stones. I also tend to fill the pockets of my husband, kids, and any sand buckets that are available. This year we came back with 1 - 5 gallon bucket full, 1 cake carrier full, and 1 sand bucket full. I just love them. Then are all so pretty and unique. The waters of Lake Superior have made them smooth over time, and they are all such interesting colors. I am not the only one that does this, there are many people you will find with their pockets full. There is even a special tool, if you don't want to get your feet wet. It cost to much for us to afford though. Maybe my wonderful inventive husband will come up with something to help me. I have uses for my stones too. I have given them away with verses on them to children at our church who participated in a Summer Bible Challenge. I have given them to women in a bible study I was in, and I have used the smaller ones to decorate bird houses and gave them away as Christmas gifts. Anyway I throughly enjoy the search for these stones. It makes me think of how my search of scripture should be, as passionate and relentless until I have found all I need to fulfill my desire, which won't be fulfilled until I see my Savior face to face. Keep digging, keep looking and the treasures you find will bless your life and grow you closer to the one you desire most, Jesus Christ. Here is a picture of me in a very familiar position at the Lake.
