Sand & Stone

    Two friends were walking through the desert.

    During the journey, they had an argument and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

    The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, he wrote in the sand:


    They kept walking until they found an oasis where they decided to take A bath.

    The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but his friend saved him.

    After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone:


    The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now you write on a stone, why?

    He replied, "When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand Where the winds of forgiveness can erase it away, but when someone does Something good for us, we must engrave it in stone, where no wind can ever erase it."

    Learn to write your hurts in the sand and
    to carve your blessings in stone!

    Castles of Sand

    by Roger Montgomery
    A little boy went down to the sea
    There was sand all around
    He built Himself a castle
    Then he tore his castle down.

    He made another castle
    On the sea there as he played
    And then a wave from the ocean came
    And washed his castle all away.

    We can spend all of our days
    Wondering where weíve been
    Our dreams disappear like bubbles
    Disintegrated like the sand.

    The day is fast approaching
    Jesus Christ is coming again
    Your houses will all be destroyed
    If they are built upon the sand.

    Weíve locked Jesus outside our hearts
    We didnít want Him to come in
    Weíve traded the Rock of Ages
    For a lousy pile of sand.

    The world is getting shaky
    Thereís no way itís going to stand
    Itís getting a little lopsided
    From all the shifting sand.

    I know just where Iím going
    Things to come and things thatís been
    Iíve seen the writing on the wall
    And the footprints in the sand.

    And God has written all this down
    And itís free to every man
    So build your house upon the Rock
    Houses fall built on the sand.
