Rocks of Wonder
How beautiful are the works of the Lord!
The earth from its crust with all God’s creation and wonders gives an abundance of rocks for different uses.
While time evolves, through science and changes these rocks form new elements.
Jewelry, food, industrial and healing equipments are birthed from these earth gems and stones like decorations and colors pouring out from a pot of gold, coming from rainbow and stars as adornment for human hands and neck.
A famous and kind professor /noted playwright Tony Perez gave us, his students, a stone to absorb negative energy from the body. So I believed him. And then, every time I went out, that time I started to do mind exercises and alignments. Some people say colors and the earth affect moods of the body, and how about the moon changing its phases?
How about the werewolf that eats when the moon is full?
And the vampires that sucks blood under night shadows?
The earth is full of stories. The forests, the mountains and into the deep are mysteries and wonders. Fiction culls from God’s creation, earth and time (God’s works).
