The Benefits of Wisdom

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! "Sunshine on my shoulders, makes me happy!" as John Denver sang. We have bright, sunshine today after a few overcast days. It is brilliant, and also cooler than it has been. But the temp is supposed to climb up to the eighties today, so we will be very warm later on!

We had some really loud, noisy storms yesterday, and lots of rain, so I was content to stay in, read and do other things indoors.Brian came back from his mini-retreat later in the afternoon, so he came by and got my ipad connected to the internet again, and brought some roadside strawberries. They look really good, but I have not tasted them yet.Looks like I will have strawberry shortcake, soon.

Daryl and Matthew are coming down for the weekend to take Brian's old car back to TN. I told Daryl that the Christmas lights would not be up. That's the only time they come.

But it will be good to see them! We will celebrate Daryl's birthday a few days early, since his birthday is April 6.

I have been hearing lots of birds singing lately, so it must be nesting time..such a happy sound.
God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Proverbs 2:1-12
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 under-
standing. 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,
