I was listening to an old John Denver song “Some Days are Diamonds; Some Days are Stone”. I was sad by the way the song flowed.

Some days are diamonds, some days are stones

Sometimes the hard times won’t leave me alone

Sometimes a cold wind blows a chill in my bones

Some days are diamonds, some days are stones

There is too much negative focus in this world? We can make each day a diamond?

Have you ever read Russell Conwell’s magnificent book “Acres of Diamonds”?

Dr. Conwell told a true story, with an ageless moral, about a farmer who lived in Africa. He became tremendously excited about looking for diamonds.

Diamonds were already discovered in abundance on the African continent. This farmer was so excited about the idea of millions of dollars’ worth of diamonds that he sold his farm to head out to the diamond line. He wandered all over the continent. As the years slipped by, he constantly searched for diamonds. Wealth he never found.

Eventually he went completely broke and threw himself into a river and drowned.

Meanwhile, the new owner of his farm picked up an unusual looking rock about the size of an egg and put it on his mantle as a sort of curiosity. A visitor stopped by and while viewing the rock practically went into terminal convulsions.

He told the new owner of the farm that the funny looking rock on his mantle was about the biggest diamond that had ever been found. The new owner of the farm said, ‘Heck, the whole farm is covered with them’ – and sure enough it was.

The farm turned out to be the Kimberly Diamond Mine . . . the richest the world has ever known. The original farmer was literally standing on ‘Acres of Diamonds’ until he sold his farm.

How has you day been? Did you know that you are a diamond? Did you know that you too could be standing on “Acres of Diamonds”, which you probably think are stones!

You are a diamond. I don’t care about your past history. I know you have potential talent that probably has not been mined yet.

You need to be cut and polished properly.

A good place to start is with your day. Do you believe today is a good day? Today is a diamond. Every day can be a diamond. You have Acres of Diamonds within you.


Each day can be a diamond or a stone. Cultivate your potential. Make yourself into a diamond. Make your life Acres of Diamonds.
