The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens.

Congenial conversation—what a pleasure!
The right word at the right time—beautiful!
~ Proverbs 15:23
Anxiety. That was the word. Feeling the pressure of leadership in a particular place at a very particular time. It was growing, and rather than let it eat me up, I found a friend with whom I could discuss the situation. She told me she would worry about those small details, and I should concentrate on the big picture because “You get it, I don’t.”
I would not necessarily describe myself as a big picture person. The needs of the individual are very clear to me when I am teaching. Sometimes I get lost in over-focusing. But that kind word…unlocked the door and showed anxiety the way out.
Today, laugh, find a way to give someone a kind word, a gentle pat on the shoulder, a note in their lunch. You will be the gem of queens in their day’s necklace.
(For a laugh…High Anxiety!)
Because of Him,
