Treasure on the Mountain
There is a cross high on a mountain along the Colca Valley in Peru. You can reach it by bus which will take you to the top of the mountain at 17,000 feet until you come to it on the other side…. sitting close to the top of the mountain at about 12,000 feet above sea level. I know it’s there, because I laid it out myself and left it there with your name on it. It’s made of rocks….the same kind of rocks that people have picked up for generations, building thousands of miles of terraces through time, even to today. The cross lies on the ground, and next to it, the word “Grace” fashioned with smaller rocks of the same kind. It was just about a week ago that I wrote the word made of rocks and I thought of all of you, how far away you were, and I longed to be back with you even as I was compelled to spell our name as an offering to God high up on that mountain. And I gave thanks for the privilege of doing so, even as I asked again in prayer to understand God’s purpose in bringing me to that place and why it had to be so hard.
