A cairn is a mound of stones erected as a memorial or marker according to answers.com. Often a cairn is used to mark a burial spot or a place where a battle was fought. They are used as memorials for great moments in the life of a people. Or a person. The Hebrews of the Old Testament had a similar concept. They built ebenezers. The word ebenezer also incorporates a sense of something that might be an altar as well. But it is a remembering. It is a rock that causes the people to remember what God did for them in that place.
This page is taking me some time to build. It will be a series of markers or memorials. The places that I remember what God did for me there. Some of the places are dry and dusty. I am searching out the stones I need to build a proper cairn. Some spots are easy, but if I get to them first, I will forget the other places. I must not forget the high, hot deserts in the midst of the lush plentiful gardens.
As I remember and erect each cairn it will appear here. So check back every now and again. You may find something new here. A new remembering of what God did for me in a particular place and time.
