The Pearl of Great Price

    While still going through the things that belong to mom I have found a treasure. Mom had lots and lots and lots of jewelry. Lots. Many years ago when Dad was stationed in the Azores, we stayed with Grandmother in Roff Oklahoma.

    While in the Azores Dad sent home a pearl for me and one for Mom. Mine was a single pearl on a chain but Mothers was a pearl encased in a gold "cage" so to speak. Many years ago mom decided that she had lost her pearl. Dad and I search over the years and we never found that pearl. It was decided that it was lost forever.

  I have been going through moms things over the past couple of years and this past week I am dealing with her jewelry boxes. One of the boxes is the one that I sent to her from the Philippines. It is carved on the top and the front of the draws and it is chocked full of pieces of old jewelry and chains. While unraveling the many pieces of broken chains I found THIS! 

 It is mothers pearl. It is dull and worn and needs some TLC........ but after a little soap and water and some cleaning, it will look just like it did 50 years ago......... It is truly a pearl of great price.  I will show you what it looks like after some TLC and a new chain.... I will wear it with great pride.



  1. Oh Denise I am SO HAPPY you found that pearl! I can only imagine what it meant to you... and how excited you must have been! What a heaven sent gift.... xoxo

  2. Isn't that the greatest thing -- to find that pearl after all this time. I agree with Lea --- a heaven-sent gift! I'm sure it brought back so many loving memories for you. Nothing better than when the lost is found once again!

  3. This is a sweet find. I think it was waiting to be found on the right day to have the most impact. Like coming out of the oyster its first time.
    Hello Denise. I was here thinking on you. I trust your doing well and happy. I think I have been in that oyster a while myself. Ha!
    I am beginning to come up from the deep and show my heart above water.
    Sorta like a hibernating injured bear. Healing has given me a chance to wake and see the sun once again.
    Life is good it was just real hard for some time there.
    I trust your well and happy. May you be enjoying a beautiful day where you are.

  4. The Peace of Christ,


    God loves each one as an only child is the love of God to the point in continuing following the same path that the storm fell incessantly and that the pain is greater than the forces that have to suffer even the darkness envelop us and try the winds injustice erase the small flame of faith but in the dark tunnel of life the light of God's love shines without ceasing love of God turns tragedy into triumph the curse into a blessing and evil in God's love is the only true path only the love of God produces fruit if planted where ever! God's love is patient ...
    hopes all ...
    supports all ...
    and never ending,
    because it is eternal!!
    Believe that despite the distance, belong to the same body in which Christ is the Head. I am extremely grateful to our God that gives us this tool that is the Internet, precisely this interaction between bloggers, who united in one purpose (EVANGELISM) disclose Love and Salvation in Christ Jesus.

    I'd be flattered if it were part with their precious presence of the frame followers. You're missing the fruit of the Spirit.

    By the way, if not already following my blog here I leave the invitation:
