Word for the Day: Wisdom

Sunday, February 26, 2012

"If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding." Proverbs2:4-6 KJV

How can you not want the wisdom He offers? As long as wisdom is sought after, the Word says He will give it to us. Love the neverchanging Word of God!

Sparking Makes Me Feel Better

Thursday, February 23, 2012

As many of you know the past weekend brought some serious emotional jerks.
Husband's aunt died...
Sorority sister in house fire with her 80+ year old mother...
Another sorority sister 80+ years old, hospitalized on Monday...

All are better now. I include Aunt Laverne because I know she's with the Lord.
What better place to be!!!

It all seemed so surreal since it all happened at one time...too much to deal with when you add stress from work.
Whew! emoticon
I also credit prayers (mine and yours).
Although I have not responded to the previous responses yet, I truly adore my sparkfriends and those of you who visited my blog. It is a blessing to know yu are not alone.
Thanks again for your ongoing encouragement!

    You truly have had more than your share of sorrow in your life lately. All you can do is pray for guidance and for others to pray along with you. That's one of the best things about Spark. All you need to do is ask and we are there for you. emoticon

At home...PJs...TV...death...burned house...whew!

Monday, February 20, 2012

Since last Sunday, I have taken in alot.
My mother-in-law's sister, was lying in ICU holding on for life after another stroke.
Her husband, now deceased, was the preacher who married my husband and I.
Long sigh...
Seeing her lie there helpless, staggered breathing...looking to the Lord, looking back at a crossroads.
Scary enough, I felt the presence of death awaiting her arrival.

Fast forward to this past Friday night, before getting dressed for my sorority's Mardi Gras celebration. A phone call arrived. Aunt Laverne died. My heart sank. Memories flashed of her hospital stay, her cheering me on as I serenaded my future husband down the aisle of our wedding, the time she survived brain surgery from a tumor removed, ...
That same night, sorority sister (suffering from Alzheimer) had a terribly large house fire.
Today, I am mentally and physically tired. So hubby and I stayed in our PJs. Now another sorority sister has been admitted. Still praying and making hospital visits tomorrow.

I pray for them: strength and peace...
Tomorrow it's back to routine...

    So sorry you are having to deal with so much right now. Prayers sent to your friends and family.

Remember to take a deep breathe and think about enjoying your life. It is okay to relax and take a break from the sadness. Your health is important too.

Rekindling a love...hmmmmm!

Saturday, February 11, 2012

Two weeks ago while perusing the snack aisle at Wal-Mart, I spotted a bag of Pistacios.
It had been YEARS-literally since I even ate 1.
So as I read the nutrition label, I thought, "Why not?"
That partially opened shell, calling...teasing me...daring me to make the purchase...
How could I resist?
Was that an index finger beckoning me from inside the bag?
Oh my!
Meandering passed the old ladies(think this was their social outing), careening through the mass crowd of teen zombies, and zipping into the shortest line, I reach satisfaction knowing that I have just rekindled a long, lost love...pistacios!

Yea, I know ypu thought this'd be another mushy chick blog! Not on your life!
Stay tuned to another episode of "What Sonya's gonna try next..." dum...dum...dum...
