I Am Speechless

As I read through my Blogger dashboard, checking out the new posts on the blogs I follow, one post in particular caught my eye.  The title of the post was "Ode to a Gem" and there was a photo of a bunch of diamonds.  I chuckled to myself as I am partial to Gems (imagine that).  I clicked on the post, expecting to read about a new jewelry purchase or gift of some sort.  As I started reading, I realized the the post wasn't about jewelry at all, but about something entirely different.  As I continued to read,  it became harder and harder to keep my composure, and like my title says, I'm speechless, so I'll let you read the post for yourself.  Click on this link:  Ode to a Gem

I continue to strive to let my light shine every day.  How about you?

Be blessed.

You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.  Matthew 5:14-16


  1. Congratulations!! It sounds like some well-deserved commendation for letting the Lord use you in someone's life. What a blessing you were/are to her and what her post was to all of us who got to read it.

  2. Yea,OK, but who thought of 'Precious Gems' back in the day?

    PS-were we scanning back then? I thought we were taking our stuff to Kinkos, lol!
