Rock in a Box

November 7, 2020

Journal, Lloyd

We still occasionally find odd little treasures in the boxes of Marxhausen donation. A box that mostly had old pipe organ pipes might also contain a little metal sculpture. A box of mosaic tiles could also have a little bit of poetry.

A matchbox turned up last week. I noticed that it had a little scrap of paper in it, so I put it off to the side. I wish I would have seen it earlier. This would have made a good Halloween post.

The Rock from the Rock in a Box is either long gone, or waiting to turn up in some other unsuspecting place, but the parable inside the box remains. You can read it for yourself below.

Okay, maybe that picture is a bit too small. Honestly, the paper is ridiculously tiny. See that quarter for scale? The text on the paper is a forth the size of “In God We trust”. Grab a quarter and see how small that is. Where do you have something like this printed in 1970?

    That is cool, but if the “coed” missed the point, I think I missed the point.
    Shouldn’t she want one? Or is the point that you get something without asking for it?

      Ha! I felt the same way. I wondered if maybe the point was that you could find your own special rock on the ground if you wanted one? The best things in life are free?

    I liked your rock post but missed the point of the parable. I do know that we have picked up a lot of rocks for pockets and be careful where you throw them to get rid of them. He knew the value of little people.
