Hold Pebbles and See Jewels
I just saw and heard a poem recitied on YouTube. The poem is called "Faith" and was written by the late Ruhiyyih Khanum. It is recited by a woman by the name of Mehr and has background music.
In the poem there is a phrase that says one of the definitions of Faith is “to hold pebbles and see jewels.”
This is what we do as teachers. We “hold pebbles and see jewels” and if we do our job correctly, the stones become jewels.
