`Ā – to sparkle like a gem……
We are each born with special gifts. May I compare them to rocks? When first discovered, they are rough, dirty and dull. We try wiping them on our sleeve hoping to expose a precious stone but it discloses no immediate beauty. Often times, we just add it to a collection of long forgotten treasures we’ve found on other adventures. But, if we take the time to clean and buff it smooth, it begins to reveal it’s inner grandeur. Every stone has inclusions, tiny imperfections within, but a steady, patient hand can carve around these creating magnificence. Every cut creates a facet, a table for light to dance upon. And when the artist’s job is complete, it is a dazzling sight. The once seemingly worthless rock is now a spectacular gem.
