pearl : something precious or choice; the finest example
We have all heard the story of how a pearl becomes a pearl. A small irritant is lodged in the shell of a mollusk and it begins to coat the intruder. Layer by layer, a protective barrier is formed around this once dangerous and harmful intruder. It is a process. And, it does not happen overnight. In the end, what was once deemed an intruder or a danger becomes a gem. It is beautiful. It communicates perseverance. It is precious.
In a sense, I am that “intruder” and some days I could be called an irritant for sure. But, in the hands of a loving God, I am shaped, molded, covered and formed into something beautiful. And much like a pearl, it does not happen overnight. It is a process. This blog is my process. My hope is that through my journey you will find encouragement and hope and that you will be reassured of the promises of God.
I am like most 30 year old stay-at-home moms trying to find balance, desiring to live up to the calling, and hoping, at the end of the day, that my actions spoke louder than my words. My loves? Jesus. Hubby. Our munchkins. Coffee. Friendship. Sunshine. Healthy food. Football season. Family. The holidays. Life.
