As we get ready to flip the calendar to September, I want to encourage you with this:

In 1975, Gary Dahl created the pet rock. If you have no clue what that is, it’s simply that–a rock that came packaged in a box that you pretended was your pet.

Google it.
I’m being for real.

It was not a special rock in the least.
It didn’t do anything other than the regular-run-of-the-mill-things a rock normally does.

Dahl sold 1.5 million pet rocks at $4/rock.
That’s $6,000,000.
Six. Million. Dollars.

For a rock in a box.
You can’t make this up.
God bless America–the land of opportunity!

Test1_Girlie, I don’t know what your prayer, hope, idea or dream is, but I know this: it’s most likely better than Dahl’s pet rock. How do I know this? Because almost anything is better than a rock as a pet.

If Dahl can sell $6 million dollars worth of rocks, you, my friend, have something far greater! Keep dreaming–BIG, God-sized dreams! Here is a scripture to help you remain strong and stand in faith!

“No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God,
but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God,
fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.”
Romans 4:20-21
