    in honor of their November birthdays, their 46 years of continued love toward each other...and their undying patience with me...


    I string the pearls together
    on the string
    my father gave me…
    my mother provided
    the bees wax needed
    to make the slide
    of precious gems much
    easier…

    I’ve been collecting
    pearls for years
    and find that
    the string
    lengthens, and
    strengthens with
    every new priceless acquisition,
    every new relevant ‘word’…

    I’ve been singing
    hymns of praise and
    adoration ~ ministering
    to my spirit…all my
    life, gathering gems

    I’ve been reading
    great books written by the
    Prophets in the GOOD
    BOOK; so much
    history, poetry, prophecy
    satisfying my hunger
    for the Bread of life

    I’ve been learning
    from scribes blessed
    with the gift of verse
    admonishing, entreating,
    inviting, enticing, inciting the
    riot of my consciousness
    to grow as they so
    righteously flow…

    I’ve been stringing
    these precious pearls
    for a very long time
    and I find there’s always
    room for more ~

    love, light, learning…

    my father gave me the
    string, and my
    mother provided the
    bees wax to make the
    slide of wisdom
    easier…
