A Pearl Of Irritation
An oyster first forms a pearl
from the irritation of a single grain of sand.
It's never placed by mistake inside you see
it was placed by God's gentle Loving hand.
Like so many things in man's own life
those irritants that we sometimes feel.
No different than the oysters grain of sand
but to us, much more irritating to deal.
God places these grains of sand in our lives
in-order that we all might learn.
To form the pearls we need to form
to place in the crowns, of which we've earned.
