Spirit Rock.

Most of the schools in our community have “Spirit rocks”.
It’s nothing mystical, it’s a chunk of stone with spray painted student salutations. They usually sit by the entrance for all to see. Parents rent the rock for a day so the rock changes constantly. Some schools in our area have two or three rocks, each custom painted by a loved one. They are immovable public displays of affection. They say “happy birthday” or “congratulations” in bold letters that run down the side of the stone. The spirit rocks get painted so often that there are usually about 147 layers of latex paint. The rock becomes a little rubbery.
It’s a billboard boulder!
It’s a really cool idea.
It’s a stone statement…
I love you…
I celebrate you…
I see value in you…
I’m glad that you were born…
And I’m going to let the world know by vandalizing a rock.
It’s a beautiful thing.

Here’s some crazy thought graffiti…
What if each one of us had our own personal big rock in our front yard and every new day it got painted?
Just imagine it…
We would wake up every day to discover an immovable public display of affection just for us.
Waiting to catch our attention and capture our heart.
It would be completely new and different every day.
Some days the rock would be painted in bright colors, some days would bring subtle hues, and inevitably and sadly, some days the rock would be dark. Real life is multicolored, and our Spirit rocks would reflect that.
But no matter the tint, there would always be a new word, it would be something fresh that you needed to hear that day.
Just imagine it…
a message crafted and customized just for you…
I love you…
I celebrate you…
I see value in you…
I’m glad that you were born…
It would be a true Spirit rock.
Spray painted love notes from your heavenly parent.
Just imagine it…
Take a minute and listen…
What would the Spirit paint on your rock?
