sand and water

Do you have those moments when you have a picture that comes from nowhere and is stuck in your head for days? I have one that did just that to me last week.

A picture of a mold and sand, or light colored dirt. When you tilted the mold, the sand fell out in a pile of nothing.

Put the sand back in the mold and add water and tilt it and a form comes out.

The sand was us, the water God. Add God to us and He forms us into the mold He wants. Pure water. And dust.

And I've noticed that when I don't have God in my life, I crumble bit by bit. Lovely metaphor, thanks for the reminder. - G
