click to listen to “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” while you read
“…taller walls are more stable if…each course of blocks is set back a bit from the row beneath, usually just a fraction of an inch, so that the wall leans uphill against the slope.”**
Leaning… Leaning makes for a stable, strong wall; also a stable, strong Christian, I think.
Toward what are you leaning? Jesus’ arms are open wide and ready to catch you if you fall.
“Lean not on your own understanding…” Proverbs 3:5
sing with me, “Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms..” (What a Fellowship, What a Hope Divine)
