Where Is Wisdom?

Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. If you do, you will know what it means to fear the Lord and you will succeed in learning about God.
Proverbs 2:4-5 

Wisdom is illusive and,
 when discovered, 
few recognize it for what it is...
a gift from God.

Make Your Choice

"Ireland Trip - Japanese Gardens" by Erin Costa is licensed under CC BY 2.0

The Lord saved me from death; he stopped my tears and kept me from defeat. And so I walk in the presence of the Lord in the world of the living. I kept on believing, even when I said, “I am completely crushed,” even when I was afraid and said, “No one can be trusted.”
Psalm 116:8-11

We make choices everyday...right or wrong.
Sometimes we don't have a choice and life deals us a tough card.  It is in those times that we must trust that God has things under control and wants the best for us.  When tempted or tried, we sometimes give up and suffer under our own fear.  Trusting is a difficult choice but oh, so rewarding.

Little Things of Spring

"Little Wonders," by Sally L. Smith

 ...I worship at your altar,
  while gratefully singing
    about your wonders.
Psalm 26:6b-7

I am so grateful for Spring...
even the bugs.

What's the Big Secret?

"untitled" by Katie Tegtmeyer is licensed under CC BY 2.0

These are things we learned
  from our ancestors,
and we will tell them
 to the next generation.
We won’t keep secret
 the glorious deeds
 and the mighty miracles
  of the Lord.
     Psalm 78:3-4

Tell them early and
tell them often.
Don't stop
even when they are
Live what you tell them.
