One of my Facebook friends, Monika, posted this great information on her profile today, and I felt I had to share it with you:
“Do you know how a pearl is made?” The old man asked me.
An irritant enters the shell of an oyster; sometimes very small, sometimes not so small.
The oyster, aware of it’s pain, begins to cover the irritant’s jagged edges with a solution created from inside itself. It will continue to slowly cover the invader until it no longer feels pain, until what we call the pearl is formed.. The oyster does not hate the irritant, it simply responds according to it’s nature, and creates out of it’s pain a jewel.
There is no pearl of hatred.”
Wow…Not only did we learn something about how a pearl is made, but maybe we can take this excerpt and apply it to our lives and the pain we experience.
If we could make a jewel out of every hurt and pain we have inside, we could make this world, and ourselves, a better place to be!
