I had dinner at my daughter’s home the other evening. These were on her kitchen counter.
She and her two children had made them. They have joined #918ROCKS. It’s purpose is creating art and encouraging creativity and activity by painting rocks to hide around the 918 area code or wherever you travel! If you find an art rock, take a picture and share it on the Facebook page. You may either keep it or rehide it. Paint your own rocks, and post a picture of them and where they may be hidden for others to find or simply hide them.
It’s creator started the Facebook group by noticing painted rocks around St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis when her son was there for retinoblastoma, a rare form of cancer, that caused him to lose his sight in both eyes. She duplicated the group in Tulsa. She cast the first stone. For her son. The group now has over 30,000 members.
I can think of another well-known story about a stone that was cast, not the story to condemn, but rather to save. A story about a stone that was found that changed the world. The rock that was rolled away from the tomb. One Easter morning. To find an empty tomb. He lives!
Whether you find or hide your own painted version, I encourage you to hide the one the stone once held captive in the tomb, Jesus, in your heart. He is our rock.
If you want to unleash your creative side, pick up a few rocks, and let your imagination run free. Create a masterpiece. Then hide it for others to find. Join in the movement. The #918ROCKS movement. And occasionally look around, and just see what treasures you may find!
They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. Luke 24:2-3
Love and laughter,
