Pondering Proverbs

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! More sun, interesting clouds and maybe rain in the late afternoon...just the same old, same old. The A/C is running overtime since the trees were trimmed letting more sun hit the house, but I am grateful it is working!

I had an appointment with my doctor yesterday and got there 15 minutes early, then as I started to get out of the van, realized I had forgotten my cane. I don't use it all the time in the house, so I just did not pick it up when I left. So, I quickly started the car and came back home, got the cane and arrived back at the office just five minutes late. I only live about five minutes from the doc's office. It did not matter that I was a little late, because there was only one patient waiting, and I had to wait anyway. I found out from the lab work that I am good in most areas, and not so good in a couple. All in all, for my age, the doc thinks I am doing pretty well. Good news!

I drove over to Wendy's and bought a salad and, I confess, a Frosty, which I had later. I made a couple other stops and then went over to the park, where everything was quiet. I saw an osprey nest with a baby in it high on the light pole at Sawgrass Elem. but only a few ibis were pecking around at the park. It was so hot, I was glad to get home, but God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

The Benefits of Wisdom

Proverbs 2:1-11
My child, listen to me and treasure my instructions. Tune your
ears to wisdom and concentrate on understanding. Cry out
for insight and understanding. Search for them as you would
for lost money or hidden treasure. Then you will understand
what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge
of God. For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come
knowledge  and understanding. He grants a treasure of good
sense to the godly. He is their shield, protecting those who walk
with integrity. He guards the paths of justice and protects those
who are faithful to him.

Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will know how to find the right course of action every time. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Wise planning will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!

Love and hugs,
