Wise Ole Owl

September 14
The father of one of my closest friends has died.  His health has been failing for a long time and his wife has been steadfast in his care.  She's one of the wisest women I know.  Every time I sit in her presence I learn from her.  She exudes love, hospitality, grace, southern charm and wisdom.

Life will be different for her in the months to come, but there is no doubt in my mind the Lord will carry her through this time of transition for she will seek Him in all things. Her wisdom comes from the Lord!

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding."  Psalm 111:10

"For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding."  Proverbs 2:6

"It is better to heed the rebuke of a wise person than to listen to the song of fools." Ecclesiastes 7:5

"Who is wise and understanding among you?  Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom."  James 3:13
