Stones Crying Out

Stones are everywhere in Ireland.  Special ones, not so special ones.  Remnants of some great castle, and remnants of simple cottages.  Stones on the edge of a great sea cliff, and stones gathered throughout fields to contain the sheep and cattle.  The Burren is so filled with stones that you cannot walk two inches without stepping on one.

I have been listening this morning to U2’s “Gloria” and “Rejoice”.  Crying out in praise to God, making the choice to praise.  It reminds me of the passage where Jesus is talking to all those religious leaders.  The leaders are upset because His followers are praising God loudly for all His miracles that they had seen.  Jesus says, “I tell you, if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”  (Luke 19:40)

The stones in this picture of Mizen Head are definitely crying out to God in their stark beauty.  And I want to do the same.  Slainte, Lisa
