The Imperfect Stone

This was a project that kept me awake creating in my head for a few nights. It would've looked much better if I would've had the right wood working tools, but unfortunately I had to use what was available. The recipient of the gift was however very gracious :) Hopefully someday soon I will be available to extend my tool box!
I wrote the accompanying poem as well...

The Imperfect Stone

When God created the mountains
He did not use the perfect stone
Instead He gathered the flawed ones
From wherever they were strewn

Together they were built up
And set upon the solid ground
A foundation that grew stronger
The tighter they were bound

From these flawed imperfect stones
The mighty mountains rose
Trusting in God’s loving hand
Afraid of no storm that blows

We are those flawed imperfect stones
Gently gathered by God’s hand
Strengthened by the love He gives
Together we will stand

Though the hands of time will change
And storms surround us too
Our family will grow closer
Knowing God will bring us through
