Wall Building 101

click to listen to “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” while you read

rockwall22“…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)

  1. I like how you express your beautiful thoughts. It’s like several avenues (the quote about wall building, the hymn, the biblical idea) merging into a main road in a very simple and pleasing way. thanks for taking the time to bless others with your gift.
