Len Sweet, a Methodist preacher, tells how he complimented a woman in Rustin, Louisiana on her jewelry. She smiled and said, "Thank you. I collect gems." I agreed and said, "It shows."

"No," she insisted. "I don't collect those gems. I collect real 'gems.' I have a gem of a husband, a gem of a daughter, a gem of a friend, a gem of a pastor. Those are the real 'gems' I invest in."

How is your gem collection doing? Who are the gems in your "crown of joy?"
