IN YOU I TAKE REFUGE
RLS:  LIVING STONES SERIES
 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  40  He said in reply, “I tell you, if they keep silent, the stones will cry out!”

WHAT IS RUBY?
 Rubies are precious stones.  As a gemstone, they are on of the 4 most prized. "An early recorded transport and trading of rubies arises in the literature on the North Silk Road of China, wherein about 200 BC rubies were carried along this ancient road moving westward from China." (see google) They have been held in high esteem for centuries, especially in Asian countries. Not only as ornament but in armor.  Ancients laid rubes under the foundation of buildings to secure good fortune to the structure.

 WHAT IS CARNELIAN?
  "Carnelian is a brownish red to red-orange variety of chalcedony or cryptocrystalline quartz. Its name is believed to come from a variety of cherry known as kornel. The distinctive red-orange color of carnelian is a result of trace amounts of iron.

BREASTPLATE OF AARON
Carnelian is one of the oldest known gemstones. It was widely used in ancient Rome to make signet or seal rings for imprinting a seal on letters or important documents (hot wax does not stick to carnelian). Carnelian is one of the twelve gemstones mentioned in the Bible as appearing on the Breastplate of Aaron. It also is one of the 12 Tribes birthstones (Virgo).(google for more info)

Job 12:8 (Tanakh)
  8  Or speak to the earth, it will teach you; The fish of the sea, they will inform you.

CREATURES OF GOD
GOD SPOKE - THE EARTH RESPONDED
Think of all the treasures that still sleep beneath the crust of the earth - all coming from the word of God - he spoke and the earth responded to his word. They are his creatures. The same God word that created the Word, Jesus! The same God who created each of us. And all his creatures, his created, sing praise God's promise. We thank God for His glory and His word which is true.

LUKE.19:39-40
 39  Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  40  He said in reply, “I tell you, if they keep silent, the stones will cry out!”

ONE STONE AT A TIME
We picture the desert fathers using these pebbles, but unlike ours, their counting stones were probably unstrung and kept in a leather pouch!  But you will also see more elegant, faceted stones that reveal their individual and inner beauty. Ever changing selections, most are limited editions, when gone, unable to replace.
