Something unimportant happened to me!

I am listening to Revelation 21 which talks to me about God’s house, with its foundations of precious stones... I stop: - ‘Precious stones!’

(Unbelievable, isn’t it?!)



Armed with pickaxes and spades, I am digging, this time on my own, in the foundations of our new house and studio. I like doing this because, at the same time, the headphones over my ears read the Bible to me (I know, I already told you this...).



I’m sometimes very moved listening to Jesus’ words; I’m stirred on the inside, a bit like the ground I am working on... (my admiration for Jesus is... er!, how shall I put it... I love him!).



 



I am listening to Revelation 21 which talks to me about God’s house, with its foundations of precious stones...



I stop:



- ‘Precious stones!’



 



Around me there is nothing but mud!



Is it talking about stones like the ones the thieves of this world have their eyes on!?



Dig... dig...



I tell myself that Rose-Marie and Jonathan (this retired couple from my church) who came unexpectedly to help my wife decorate our future love-nest just overhead, are so precious... 



Much more than any stone you find in the strong-boxes of UBS (the Swiss bank)!



 



Maybe it’s people like them who are the living stones of the kingdom of heaven... (?)



Dig... dig...



I am already so looking forward to living one day in the Lord’s house... 



 



The morning after, on my prayer route, with its completely new cover of white snow, I leave marks of mud from my cellar wherever I walk...



Especially when I stumble (and in life, isn’t it at those moments that we most notice what our values are?).



Walk... walk... 



 



- ‘Lord, may I do the same in my life: leave marks of the foundations of your Kingdom...’



On reaching my studio, my big boots are clean! But I am sure that the ‘Experts’ (even the ones from Miami) will easily find their way back to my house again...
