Surrender the rock.

Dirty
Plain
Inadequate.

Refine it.

Cut
Grind
Polish.

Reshape and redirect.

Remove shameful impurities
Smooth hard edges
Clothe with silver and gold.

By love and by grace.

Sparkle
Shine
Glimmer.

Made pure by love.

Wonderous
Spectacular
Shining gem.

The craftsman always knew

was hiding
In the rock.
