If Stones Could Talk

Fahan Beehive huts, outside of Dingle, Ireland, 2001. These huts were built in the 12th or 13th century.

If stones could talk, I bet they’d say

Just sit and listen to our day

The things we’ve seen, the people here

Could make you laugh and cry and cheer

History comes, history goes

But we have stood and never show

The stress, the rain, the wind, the woes

Because we are stones that time froze

We always will support each other

And be here for you to soon discover

Look at the intricacy and sheer number of rocks that make up these Irish walls.  When you really examine them, it is overwhelming how much time, work and thought went into these structures.  And it is also amazing how many thousands of years these structures have withstood Ireland’s invaders, winds, rains, and other natural decayers.  It makes me glad that they are there, solid, enduring, testament to lives lived.  It makes me glad that we have a solid rock in Jesus, who is the same yesterday, today, and forever, solid, enduring, and always with us.  Blessings, Lisa
