Sand Castle Lives
~ by Cathie Jo Floyd

Once a year our local beach holds a sand-sculpting contest. I stand in awe as I watch these people using just sand, a shovel and their hands, to make a work of art from only what nature supplies. In the evening as everyone begins leaving, I am always left with a melancholy feeling, knowing that as the tide comes in, all this beauty will be washed away. Many times it has caused me to ponder, "Is this what I do with my life? Are my hopes, dreams, fears and trust built on a foundation made of sand?"

"For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work." ~ 1 Corinthians 3:11-13
