TRUE WISDOM CAN ONLY BE FOUND BY GOING TO GOD

"If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask GOD, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him." James 1:5

STERLING SILVER AND BABY SHOES

SOMETIMES ITS HARD TO BELIEVE HOW FAST TIME CAN JUST WHIRL BY AND WE CAN'T EVEN DETECT THAT IT'S HAPPENING ....... TONIGHT I WENT TO DINNER AT A FABULOUS RESTAURANT WITH MY BABY BROTHER (WHO BY THE WAY IS NOW 33 YEARS YOUNG ) AND HIS BEAUTIFUL WIFE AS WELL AS MY WONDERFUL SISTER DO I HAVE TO SAY "IN -LAW "( SHE IS JUST LIKE A SISTER TO ME ) ...... AT FIRST I WAS GOING TO DECLINE BECAUSE I FIGURED IT WOULD BE A GREAT NIGHT TO MAKE GRANOLA FOR THE LOCAL CAFE I SELL TO ( AND TO SAY THE LEAST MY HUBBY WAS OUT COYOTE HUNTING SO I HAD THE HOUSE ALL TO MY LONESOME ) ...... I WAS SET !! ORGANIC OATS, LOCAL HONEY, A SNOWSTORM BREWING AND ITALIAN MUSIC ..... WHAT MORE COULD A GAL ASK FOR ....... AHHHHHHHHHHH SHE COULD ASK FOR AN ALL EXPENSE PAID FOR EXOTIC AND DELICIOUS DINNER AT A LOCAL FINE DINING ESTABLISHMENT ........... SO INTO THE SHOWER I WENT , PUT ON MY MAKE UP AND TOSS UP MY HAIR INTO A SCRUNCHIE AND PUT ON A REALLY NICE PAIR OF DENIMS , PRETTY WINTER SWEATER AND A RECENTLY PURCHASED BROWN WOOL CAPE....... DINNER WAS GREAT ...... WE ATE AND LAUGHED BUT AS WE WERE REMINISCING OVER THE PAST I HAD A VERY STRON G DESIRE TO VISIT WITH DAD ...... IT WAS GETTING LATE BUT MY BROTHER TOOK ME ANYWAY...... THE VISIT WAS WORTH EVERY MINUTE OF THE FEW WE ALL SPENT TOGETHER TONIGHT ....... WE CHATTED I SALVAGED THROUGH OLD JEWELRY AND CAME UPON MY MOMS ORIGINAL STERLING SILVERCHARM BRACELET.......THE CHARMS CONSISTED OF A SILVER HEART ENGRAVED WITH WEDDING BELLS AND THE DATE 11/14/59 (YES MY PARENTS WOULD HAVE BEEN MARRIED 50 YEARS JUST THIS PAST NOVEMBER ) ,THERE WERE SHOE CHARMS FOR EACH OF US KIDS ,A SILVER CIRCLE TO CELEBRATE MY PARENTS 20TH ANNIVERSARY AND A CHARM OF JESUS WITH HIS MOTHER........ AS I RUMMAGED FURTHER DOWN THROUGH THE DRAWERS OF MY MOMS OLD DRESSER I ALSO CAME UPON ONE MORE ANTIQUE ....... MY FIRST PAIR OF BABY SHOES .......SO TINY YET STRONG IN CHARACTER THESE SHOES LOOKED AND THEN IT HIT ME ..... THESE OLD TATTERED LITTLE WHITE SHOES HAD TAKEN ME ALL AROUND THIS BIG OL' HOUSE I WILL ALWAYS CALL HOME ........WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO END THE EVENING ..........WITH 2 BEAUTIFUL GIFTS FOR ME TO CHERISH ........ ITS NOT EVERY NIGHT YOU FIND STERLING SILVER AND OLD TATTERED LITTLE WHITE SHOES ....... IT REMINDS ME OF WHAT JESUS DOES WHEN HE FINDS US LOOKING AND FEELING LIKE AN OLD TATTERED SHOE AND WE ACCEPT HIM AS OUR SAVIOUR WE BECOME JUST LIKE STERLING SILVER..........SUMMER
