The 8-25-2017 “Upper Room” devotion spoke of using a small, smooth pink stone as a daily reflection reminder. It helps the writer remember to thank God for her blessings. On my desk is a small, smooth rock painted like a red ladybug. It is a “worry stone”- holding it reminds me to let go of my worries and think of my blessings. Ladybugs are good luck symbols in Europe, and the color red is a good luck symbol in the Orient. Thinking about all of that reminds me that God is everywhere, and I can serve “cheerfully in Christ”.
