Walk Through it All by Chaelwest

  • Posted on October 24, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Admist it all, through pain and joys

The falseness that my heart deplores

When other’s words seem far too strong

And relief from pain seems Oh so long

I trust in an unswerving Source

Who walks me through it all…


When darkness grabs my burdened soul

When unkindnesses wax much too old

He holds me safe within the fold…

A guiding shepherd with His crook

With loving smile; with tender look

He walks me through it all…


I’m Blessed to have a Savior who

Sees all my faults and sins brand new

Yet gives me love so sweetly to

Proclaim His Truth for all to see

Provides new birth for you and me

And walks me through it all…


Savior, Jesus, LORD Divine

You bear my pain, my heart doth shine

With power sent from up above

With certainty that in your love

Despite the pain, and sorrow’s wall

Because you triumphed o’er The Fall

I’ll walk straight through it all…

Traditional Birthstones


Ancient traditional birthstones are society-based birthstones. The table below contains many stones which are popular choices, often reflecting Polish tradition.[10]


The Gregorian calendar has poems matching each month with its birthstone. These are traditional stones of English-speaking societies. Tiffany & Co. published these poems “of unknown author” for the first time in a pamphlet in 1870.[11]


By her who in this month (January) is born
No gem save garnets should be worn;
They will ensure her constancy,
True friendship, and fidelity.


The February-born shall find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and from care,
If they an amethyst will wear.


Who in this world of ours their eyes
In March first open shall be wise,
In days of peril firm and brave,
And wear a bloodstoneto their grave.


She who from April dates her years,
Diamonds shall wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow; this stone,
Emblem of innocence, is known.


Who first beholds the light of day
In spring’s sweet flowery month of May
And wears an emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife.


Who comes with summer to this earth,
And owes to June her hour of birth,
With ring of agate on her hand
Can health, wealth, and long life command.

The glowing ruby shall adorn,
Those who in July are born;
Then they’ll be exempt and free
From love’s doubts and anxiety.


Wear a sardonyx or for thee,
No conjugal felicity;
The August-born without this stone,
`Tis said, must live unloved and lone.


A maiden born when September leaves
Are rustling in September’s breeze,
A sapphire on her brow should bind
`Twill cure diseases of the mind.


October’s child is born for woe,
And life’s vicissitudes must know,
But lay an opal on her breast,
And hope will lull those woes to rest.


Who first comes to this world below
With drear November’s fog and snow,
Should prize the topaz‘s amber hue,
Emblem of friends and lovers true.


If cold December gave you birth,
The month of snow and ice and mirth,
Place on your hand a turquoise blue;
Success will bless whate’er you do.

—Gregorian Birthstone Poems


Modern Birthstones


In 1912, in an effort to standardize birthstones, the (American) National Association of Jewelers met in Kansas and officially adopted a list.[12] The Jewelry Industry Council of America updated the list in 1952[13] by adding alexandrite to June and citrine to November; specifying pink tourmaline for October; replacing December’s lapis with zircon; and switching the primary/alternate gems in March. The most recent change occurred in October of 2002, with the addition of tanzanite as a December birthstone.[14][15] Britain’s National Association of Goldsmiths created their own standardized list of birthstones in 1937.[16]
