Wisdom from Above!

I took this picture yesterday on my route.

I'm trying to handle a situation that has come up in my life today with grace and dignity. I want to be Godly in how I handle this and loving as a Mom. God is working through me to keep my month closed and think about this issue before I handle it badly. This is not a life or death situation so I just want to handle it with wisdom.
I thought before I deal with it, I would remember all the wonderful blessings that the Lord has done for me. This poem and song sums it up better then I could say it myself.

Proverbs 31

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and the law of kindness is on her tongue.


I was going to give everyone a tour of my route today, but instead, I'm just going to deal with my little situation, and try not to blow it out of proportion. As Mother's Day is approaching, I am once again, thankful for my mom and how she put up with me as I was growing up. I really believe with all my heart, even the smallest of thing that we do, oome back around through our children. Oh my goodness, while I am sitting here posting, I am reminded of a situation I was in at school. It just so happens to be very close to what I am dealing with this morning with my son. This brought a smile to my face, as I remember back to when I was in school and did the exact same thing, (well mine was a little worse) as I am dealing with right now with my son. The Lord sure has a way of bringing humor into our lives.

Mom, when you read this; I just want to Thank you for being the wonderful mom that you are. I love you with all of my heart. Happy Mother's Day! BTW-Did you want your favorite grandson? I'm letting him go for very cheap!

Lord, I hope You hear
This prayer I have today
Please listen now real closely
To the words I need to say.

I thank You for Your blessings
That You've always given me
You've given me a love of life
And eyes that I might see.

I look to see the beauty
Of everywhere You touch
I'm deeply filled with gratitude
And I thank You Lord, so much.

The gifts You give go on and on
Each day brings something new
Peace and joy and happiness
I can always count on You!
~ Charlotte Anselmo ~

Some thank the Lord for friends and home,
For mercies sure and sweet;
But I would praise Him for His grace
In prayer I would repeat:

Chorus
Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul,
Thank you, Lord, for making me whole;
Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free.

Some thank Him for the flow'rs that grow,
Some for the stars that shine;
My heart is filled with joy and praise,
Because I know He's mine.

Chorus
Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul,
Thank you, Lord, for making me whole;
Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free.

I trust in Him from day to day,
I prove His saving grace;
I'll sing this song of praise to Him
Until I see His face.

Chorus
Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul,
Thank you, Lord, for making me whole;
Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free.

Hi there... thanks for popping by! The words I have in my mind this week are " Be still and know that I am Lord" and it sounds like it is good to pass on too. I hope you have a peaceful day.

Great words of wisdom. My boss recently told me that he thought another co-worker was odd because this person always thinks before he speaks. I told hime we all should do that. Have a wonderful day and keep blogging.

You must feel really challenged by whatever it is. And I think you are rising to the challenge, thinking it through and making sure you respond with grace and wisdom.

A beautiful post Lori. I think you are being very wise in the way you are handling your situation. I think it's so much better to just be still for a little while. I wish I did it more often :)
