Diamonds passed by…

We sometimes pass them by everyday...only to stumble upon the common stones, which can be found almost everywhere. Some diamonds are covered with dirt, but when you wipe the dust and dirt off of them? Their true beauty does shine so bright that no other gem can compare to them...sadly we do pass those diamonds by everyday in search of what the world sees as a true diamond, only to find they are just common stones which can by found anywhere. The true brilliance of a diamond can't been seen with the naked eye...it requires a special tool if you want to see its clarity and distinct colors that make it shine…Once you see pass what appears to be dirt to the naked eye? Blow away that dust and stop looking with your naked eyes and see the diamonds that you pass by everyday of your life.

    Some people cannot see the treasure they have found. They never take the time to look inside. Judgements are made every day, the reason so many gifts go astray. There is so much truth in your words, take care, Lee
