Having been housebound for the past week, with ice, snow & temperature in the 20’s, I’ve been feeling a bit sorry for myself. Maddie’s strong, hopeful blog was just what I needed to lift me up and give me a mission for the new year. I’m selecting and preparing to throw that stone! Thank you, dear Madelon.

I am grateful for Madelon’s insight and how she brings the Bible to life and highlights its relevance for us today. Those five stones are now more meaningful and helpful for me going forward this year. Many thanks, Maddie! Happy New Year and all the best to you!

I would like to overcome narrowminded, selfish interest that does not listen for the voice of God for direction. Thank you Madelon for this Collective thrust in the right direction where we take our 5 smooth metaphysical stones to fight our Goliaths. We have all the tools we need, we just need to use them.

Great idea. Thank you. My stones are the synonyms for God.

Thanks so much, Madelon! Lots of thought-provoking ideas to work with in this vlog! Love the concept of the five smooth stones being biblical truths that we have “made our own”!!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
