Jewels in jars

Simple pleasures
Twinkle among us
The gentle joie de vivre
Sunlight on roof tiles
A fresh new song
Perfume
Or a really, really funny joke.

Sometimes the sheer fact of life just catches my eye
Chokes me up
And makes me tearful with joy.
*
We hold in us all the potential to sparkle
if you hold us to the light
So why do we hide?
I know the answer; fear, drudgery
and ordinary times that dull our minds
But just once in a while…

we shine.

2 Corinthians 4 v 7 – The Message
“If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That’s to prevent anyone from confusing God’s incomparable power with us.”
