Pearls,br />

A grain of sand in isolation
endures a constant irritation,
until the day a pearl is formed
from a grain of sand transformed,
into a lovely, precious stone
one we can be proud to own.

But realize the time involved
for such a pearl to evolve,
much like our own transformation
thru God's process of renovation;
molding, purging and purification,
testing, trials and separation.

Secluded in a lonely place
sustained by God's amazing grace.
Yet only God knows our ordeal
and understands just how we feel.
Hidden away for a duration
to emerge a new creation!
Pearls of choice by God's selection,
now a part of His collection.

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
