My friend is just back from California. She had a wonderful time....and brought back these beautiful fire cherry quartz stones (the large stone) and very special other beads for us to make matching necklaces. And that is just what we spent yesterday afternoon doing. This picture doesn't do it justice ...you'll just have to imagine how beautiful this is! I also got to enjoy the pictures from her trip....another beautiful wedding and the vacation spots they enjoyed. Oh, modern technology, isn't it great! How good it is to have things to do, make, and enjoy including friendship...the best of all. Thank you friend for the wonderful necklace & your friendship and fellowship. A special thanks to each of you who left me a comment lately, you are such a blessing to my heart!
"Finally brethern, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8

Thinking of gemstones...made me think of heaven. "And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl; and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. And I saw no temple therein; for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are th temple of it." Revelation 21:21,22.

Gemstones, one of God's little treasures stored up within the Earth for mankind to discover. Each scripture is a gem for us to uncover too.
