The Loss

Over the past year and 1/2 we have lost several important people in our community the most recent being Grandpa Andy.  He was a wonderful, active and very loving person.

So to have lived 90 years on this earth and spread as much love as this man did is truly an amazing accomplishment.  He had one son, and 9 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.  Plus he had hundreds of us that counted him as grandpa…

He was very giving not only of his love, time but also his resources, for when any group that involved his grand kids he was one of the first to donated.

He spent a lot of time with groups in town, and passed on his wonderful wealth of knowledge to many in our community.

I hope if I make it to 90 I can spread as much kindness, wisdom, and love to young people.

Proverbs 9:11
For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.

So how do you gain wisdom, trial and error? listening to others? just doing what you think? or do you stop and pray for wisdom, for guidance on how to proceed with you choice.  In my years on the earth I have been through many trials, some very hard other just downright scary.  When I was young I never thought about praying for what I needed or for wisdom to help me make a choice.  Many times I just winged it and hoped it would work, there was so many times I failed.  I would break down and just ask why didn’t this work, I had it all planned out…then when I was in my 30’s when my third child was born, I woke up to the fact I need to trust God for wisdom in every choice I made.  So now if I need a bit of wisdom in a choice, I pray for it first, second and third and then I wait on the Lord for an answer, sometimes the answer is like a shout sometimes its like a whisper so wait patiently for an answer, if an answer never comes then it was not meant to be.

Proverbs 14:29
Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.

May your day be blessed.
