It had seen better days.
It at one time was strong and steady. You could tell there was something still there, even though the treasures it once held inside have been gone for a while. Now all you see is an empty shell. You no longer see the brightness, the beauty it once had. Now most of those things have faded away. Now it looked lost and alone.
Then something happened.
Someone saw this lost and alone thing and wanted it since before it was made. That someone saw what it could be, not what is was. That someone knew in time it could be strong and steady again and knew it would never be lost or alone again. As long as it had that something special inside of it…..a treasure more valuable than the most precious stone or all the money in the world. That special something, that most treasured item…… is your heart and that special someone is……. your Lord!
