The way it was before we started working on it.
We removed the large rocks and debris,
then laid out some paving bricks where we wanted them to be.
The grass and dirt was dug out, and the pavers put in place.
Black weed barrier was laid down.
River rocks were transplanted and the larger rocks put back in place. We may eventually add some decorative garden ornaments or artificial flowers, but this is what it looks like for now.
Every time I look at our new rock garden, I will be reminded to put my trust in the "everlasting rock." Isn't it great that we have a God who is our refuge and strength? He is the only "rock" that can truly take care of us in our times of need.
Psalm 18:2 - The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Isaiah 26:4 Trust in the LORD forever, For in GOD the LORD, [we have] an everlasting Rock. (NASB)
