The most precious jewels are not made of stone,
but of flesh.

— Robert Ludlum

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.

— Isaiah 60:1

It’s each moment
strung like crystal beads
onto scarlet thread

stillness of soul
bathed in blood
nourished in peace

moment by moment
in the fire of

unquenchable love
into the fullness of a life
Headed HOME.

— Cindee Snider Re

  2. I think we were on each others posts at the same time. You have me curious if you are in the jewelry business. I’ve noticed many of your posts include jewelry, or maybe it is a coincidence. Lovely post!
