The other day I was getting dressed and thought I needed that "something" extra to just give my jeans and rather cool top a bit of "pop."

So, I did what every woman does, I went digging through my jewelry to find just the right piece.

And then, I remembered my pearls.

The ones my amazing hubby bought me for my "something or other" birthday.

Having lots of children in your home does not lend to wearing your pearls very often, but these pearls are very special.

When both my sisters turned "forty" my mother bought them pearls.

What they did with them, or even if they remember I don't know, but I did know I didn't receive the valued string of pearls for my fortieth.  I have no idea why, and to be frank, she might have been upset with me because I was changing countries, just after that monumental birthday.

But, although I was disappointed, I went on my merry way until one fine day, around my another non-eventful birthday, my amazing hubby came home with the most exquisite string of REAL pearls.

Well, I got them out of their special case, put them on and remembered that pearls are the perfect jewelry for every occasion.  They gave me that "special" feeling of being unique all over again.

You see, a pearl is unique.  

It is not fashioned by man, it is fashioned by God, inside the oyster.

In fact, a parasite creeps into the oyster and the oyster fashions it into something beautiful instead of something that was not.

You and I are the same.

We are unique.


And, if we listen closely to the voice within us, we too are fashioned into exactly what God intends for us.

He gently, over time, polishes and molds us into His unique pearl.

One that is like no other.

One that is fashioned for His purpose and plan.

Perhaps you feel that you need a little polishing to get some of your sparkle back after these longs months of living through a pandemic.

Then save the date, Saturday, July 22nd for an amazing day at my farm.

Yup, it ain't virtual, it's personal!

You can read all about it HERE!

If you'd like to just have a virtual coffee and chat about how you can polish that beautiful pearl inside you go HERE and book your time with me, for FREE!

See you at the farm on July 22nd, but hurry, there's only room for a few.

A thought to leave you with!

Why do we compare Heaven to a pearl?  A pearl is a perfect simile because a fine pearl is a valuable treasure that needs no polishing or cutting by man. It comes to us complete and lustrous created by God through nature, as is the kingdom of heaven, which only God could create and perfect.
Matthew 13.45/46.
