This week’s color representation is on iridescent stones. Iridescent stones illustrate the “promises of God” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). I chose two of my most favorite iridescent gemstones: moonstone and labradorite. As these gemstones change colors in the light, so does our situations change as we shed God’s light on them. This is something that I am learning to do and it really helps to bring everything into perspective. Taking situations as they come, especially difficult ones, and looking to God’s Word for guidance is something that gets easier with practice. I have noticed a change in my reactions and responses since I now take a moment to reflect on God’s Word prior to responding. I take my time and am much more peaceful. Some days are better than others, but as I take one day at a time and look to God’s Word, I know that I am on the right track! Now, here is one of my favorite verses to go with my favorite gemstones:
1 Chron. 38:20
“Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you (NLT).
This verse helps me to stay focused. If I do the work and rely on God, He promises to help me.

It has been a while! I have not forgotten—I have just been a little distracted. Now, on to the next color…brown: “brown symbolizes earthen vessels and humility” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). I have been avoiding this color and I don’t know why because I have a lot of gorgeous brown beads. I have been thinking about this Bible blog post for a while and knew that I still had more to post (two left after this one), but this time I knew exactly what beads I was going to use. I prayed about a design and these earrings are the result. I love that brown symbolizes humility. I don’t know about you, but humility… humbleness… is something that I could use more of. I found this Bible verse on humility:
Proverbs 15:33 “The fear of the Lord is the instruction for wisdom, and before honor comes humility (NASB).”
Honor comes after humility. To me, this means in order to be your best, you need to be humble. God’s Word instructs us to love each other. Ephesians 4:2 “with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love” (NASB). This is often hard to do, especially if someone rubs you the wrong way. I must make it a priority to be humble even when I don’t feel like it. I have made plenty of mistakes; however, focusing on God’s Word and taking one day at a time helps me. I am thankful that I can depend on His strength and not my own.
Paz is Spanish for “peace” (babynames.com). I thought that this was an appropriate name for these earrings since they symbolize humility. The earrings measure just shy of 3” in total length.
