Between a Rock and Hard Place

     Just as a gracious and loving God brings forth beautiful flowers from rocky ground, love can overcome the stark emptiness of life and cause our spirits to bloom.

     Sitting here on this old bucking bronco called life, old cowboy has found thru the years that love is like that old saying; “…between a rock and a hard place.” The arena we ride in contains both the pleasing roar of the crowd when we win, and the harsh taste of the dirt that accompanies a fall.

     But it is equally true, that when you look out on the world and see nothing except a barren rock pile, love can make the flowers bloom. Life is never too hard that beauty can not be found. So it would seem to this old cowboy, we have two choices when life gets rough, sit alone and cry out in pain, or take the rocks and build a rock-garden.
