Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder

2 min readMay 27, 2023

I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.

A Jewel: I wrote earlier this week about learning to throw caution to the wind and proving myself to be a risk taker. The jewel I’ll add to that is that I do use caution when taking risks. Both can work together. So, cauitously I do throw caution to the wind! Think about that for a minute.

A Gem: I am not a religious person. As a matter of fact, I despise religion. I am a follower of the Jesus as He is written about in the New Testament. That is my creed. I am affiliated with no religious organization. I simply write about my experience and how faith is the force that sets me apart.

Metaphorical Gunpowder: Sometimes waiting to see the plan as God has written it can feel like I’m on a crazy train. Everyone else seems to know where they’re going, what they’re doing, and what their future will look like. Not so for me. I leave room for God to write the script of my life. As crazy as that sounds, I don’t know what my future holds, but I know it’s good.

Please comment below by leaving your jewel, a gem or something you keep yourself free from with metaphorical gunpowder.

All love!
