Our group's name will be the 'Living stones' after two verses:
Luke 19:40 - "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."
I Peter 2:5 ..."you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ."
May we work together for the glory of God! This is the very goal of the Church! :)
I spent the rest of the day writing web forms in Cold Fusion for database class. Also, I looked over notes for Monday's lecture, which I am responsible for delivering! I suppose that if I can grade and lecture, I am not too far from being a professor.
Currently, I am listening to the Wise Buddha remix of Truly by Delerium. It's so good.
"I know good things, I know bad as well
Any witness of the world can tell
If there is sorrow, there is beauty and trust
A secret pearl inside the heart of us
So truly, if there's light then I want to see it
Now that I know what I am looking for
Truly, if there is joy, then I want to feel it
And if we're strangers here, from the day we are born
Why be afraid of freedom if it's yours?"
So much about stones and pearls, I must add a few more thoughts.
Megan means pearl.
Pearls grow layer by layer, gradually increasing in size, value, and beauty. By the grace of God, one layer at a time, He can transform me into something precious. Like Simon Peter, from sand to rock.
Pearls are counted among gemstones, but they are not formed of crystal. They are earthy and natural. I love this kind of organic beauty. It may not be elegant, but it is heart-felt and sincere.
Pearls cost a clam a lot of pain, though...
