#97)Write short gospel verses on ten rocks with sharpies and throw them back on the beach.

Pre Sharpied

Side One


Side Two

Down in a stump.

This one was a little wet.

In a piece of driftwood with a hole right through.



My original plan was to post ONE photo of each item completed. I just couldn't do that with the gospel rocks, because it was so fun photographing them while the seagulls called and the waves lapped beside me. Five of them were place on the sand and five of them were placed on wood.

Check this out, this idea is spreading around the net! How fun!

WOW!!!!!! You are so creative! Where in the world did you get that idea? I want to do that. I wish we had a beach. Me and nadia will have to dream up something to write on.

Lady- Thank you. :)

Kim- I just thought of it as I was writing the 101 list. I wanted to share gospel verses some how as one of the list items, but didn't know how.

My fingers got really cold while I was writing the verses because I just took the paper with my chosen verses on it and chose rocks once I got there. Almost every rock has Acts 16:31 and then each has a separate gospel verse on the back. Except two that were really bumpy, so I just put "He died for you" with an arrow asking them to turn the rock over. It was a lot of fun.

Hi! This is my first visit and I loved it here! I linked to you from Deby at D of the King. I adore this idea of scripture rocks.

I love your list and the scripture rocks. I also like that you didn't have just a year to accomplish your list. I certainly could write a list of unfinished projects...but there are many thngs I hope to do someday, too. Thanks for the inspiration. I found you from Deby's page(daughter of the King).
