My friend @ann_huffines gave me this great reminder . Notice the pearl is sitting on a piece of sandpaper. There’s practically no way to miss this message: A pearl is only shiny after it’s been refined, sandblasted, & polished to its designed purpose. Beauty only comes with exfoliation. Are you going thru some sandblasting? Take heart-your trial is not designed to harm you but to help you. Ask God to help you. He wants the world to see you the way He does-complete & beautiful! #pearl #refinery #pain#hope #god #flashthosepearlywhites ❤️ — with Ann Gray Huffines.
