The Building Blocks that Matter

The Building Blocks that Matter

In life there are a few instances that you can honestly say have had impact. Now at 28, though still somewhat young, I have opportunity to reflect a little. One of the things I can remember are the summers I spent at my grandparents.  My grandmother had picked up a large mixture of legos and plastic blocks at yard sales. They of course were not name brand. Nor did they come with instructions. I would lay on a sheet in the middle of their living room and build whatever I so desired. I never once questioned whether or not I had all the pieces. To me I had everything I needed. God used a box of second-hand plastic interconnecting blocks to teach a man how to think.

Over the years, my life has matured. Still today I am blessed with opportunities to build. A sheet on the living room floor and a child’s imagination may not seem like much in adult life. However, I believe a great deal of success can come from a child with limited understanding doing his best to create with what is given. Whether 8, 28, or 88 years old, I could not think of better way for a true steward to be remembered.
