The Really True Jewels

Think about it: there are things in life that are the same whether we are rich or poor.  No matter our "status," we see the same moon in the same sky, we can cool our toes in the same oceans and lakes, we go to the same parks and picnic at the same beaches ... smell the same flowers, gaze at the same trees, skies, stars, clouds ... and I could go on. I heard someone say this recently and it caused me to pause and think. 

These gifts that we live with each day are the true diamond-studded jewels in our lives. They are the real riches––there for us all to gaze at, wonder at ... and worship the One Who Created Them All.

    You know, I find that very comforting. I think of it in the way that God is the same today and forever and when life is bumpy, I can see that He's the One Who's consistent.

    That is VERY comforting.

    Anyone we know in the photo?


  3. Thanks for your comments. Actually, Sabrina is the good photographer. I did take the bottom of photo of Ella. David and Sabrina were doing her chest PT, and she was mesmerized watching Dora.

    I'm learning that a good camera does not a photographer make! I'm working at it.

    I remember all too well the days when our children were younger, swimming together. Wonderful memories.


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
