A Stone House


There once was a child who pondered upon life.

The child thought it would be wise to build a house. With hard work, slowly and painstakingly, the child started to build.

Some people were happy and offered encouragement.

Others did not notice and went on with life.

Some were not happy. They picked stones and threw them at the child and the house.

But the child was building a house of stone.


Whatever you are building, you will have supporters, those who are indifferent, and detractors. Ensure you build with stone.

Love, light and blessings!

    This is so true about life. For what ever you do, you have detractors and supporters, but the important thing is to remain focus and once you do that you will surely achieve your goal.

  8. As you build with stone may scrutiny in the type of stone thrown be of importance, to ensure the stability of the ‘structure’
