Our friend, Trip, often speaks in terms of gems - a packaged gift of God's beauty and truth. Two such recent gems in my life are enclosed in this post. One is Jeremy Camp's song Walk By Faith. The other is a generic picture of a Great White Egret. I never recollect seeing a White Egret before I looked out into the fields while feeding the cows at Clarence's farm this morning. It was stunningly beautiful.

Would I believe you when you say
Your hand will guide my every way
Will I receive the words You say
Every moment of every day
Well, I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well, because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me

Help me to rid my endless fears
You've been so faithful for all my years
With the one breath You make me new
Your grace covers all I do
