After saving some money, I had a piece of glass cut for our kitchen table to put pictures under. It makes for a very fun table (slightly tacky- but VERY fun). Now I have a place to put all my favorite pictures from the last 5 years!! The boys love it and it is quite the conversation starter if you have boring dinner guests. 😉
I call it my stones of remembrance table because it makes me think of when the Israelites would make stones of remembrance so they would never forget God’s faithfulness during the hard times (isn’t that so easy to do??). These stones provided a reminder during these times that God was near and active.
My new table also puts you in a very thankful mood because it is a celebration of God’s goodness to our family.
It’s beautiful, Steph!
Everyone is probably familiar with God having parted the Red Sea to allow the Israelites to escape Egypt and flee toward the Promised Land. In a less-recounted event, God once again parted waters for the Israelites, some forty years after the event at the Red Sea. God caused the Jordan River to stop flowing so that Israelites could cross over and directly into the Promised Land. While the waters were parted, God directed Joshua, the leader of the Israelites at that time, to collect stones from the river to serve as remembrance of God’s faithfulness to his children.
May we all know the majesty of a Father who parts the waters and leads us home.
