After our trip to West Texas in August, I came home all fired up to revive an old hobby of mine--rock polishing. All our family are rock hounds, and over the years we've collected tons (maybe literally!) of rocks out on the ranch. We spent hours sorting them . . . and then we had to fly back to France and leave them there. European baggage restrictions just didn't allow us to carry back suitcases full of rocks, but finally, we were there with a TRUCK! Herb loaded boxes of my rocks into every nook and cranny, and we hauled them back home.
I love bringing out the beauty that God has hidden in these chunks of rock. They were rather plain and dull at first, but now they are a witness to the beauties of His Creation. That's why this hobby rocks!
(Stay tuned for more posts about rock polishing and what you can do with the rocks once they're polished.)
