I am so blessed to live in the beautiful city of Encinitas. While many states within our country are experiencing the teens in weather we are enjoying making sand castles at the beach. On Monday I got to go to the beach with all of my grand children – it was so fun. The sand glistened with little sparks that resembled diamonds, the ocean waves produced a steady rhythm which matched and calmed my heart and the scent of salt permeated my senses. There is something about the beach that causes me to breathe more deeply filling my lungs with the salty air, my toes scrunch in the grains of sands hoping to find those glistening diamonds and I giggle as I run from those rhythmic waves. It was such a fun day with six humans who bring my heart joy.
The song He is making diamonds out of us has brought a sense of peace to my being, kind of the same I get when I spend some time at the beach. The words allow me to breathe more deeply knowing that even though things are not well the most wonderful there is a purpose . . . . He is making a diamond out of me – He is refining me and producing a diamond. Refining isn’t fun it is downright well YUCK! But the outcome is always good – being crushed by love to uncover the hidden beauty and capabilities within me. He is making diamonds . . . . . out of me!
