The Jewel's light hasn't been shining so bright for the past few days and i've been struggling with some things that i initially wasn't sure how to handle. i prayed on the things that were affecting me and did what i know is the right thing to do, which is to let go and let God. so, now that i've done that, i feel it's time for me to let the Jewel sparkle again and i thought this funny post would be a good start for it. Enjoy!
