Love and Seek True Wisdom
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. (Proverbs 8:17)
Wisdom loves her lovers and seeks her seekers. He is already wise who seeks to be wise, and he has almost found wisdom who diligently seeks her. What is true of wisdom in general is specially true of wisdom embodied in our Lord Jesus. Him we are to love and to seek, and in return we shall enjoy His love and find Himself.
Our business is to seek Jesus early in life. Happy are the young whose morning is spent with Jesus! It is never too soon to seek the Lord Jesus. Early seekers make certain finders. We should seek Him early by diligence. Thriving tradesmen are early risers, and thriving saints seek Jesus eagerly. Those who find Jesus to their enrichment give their hearts to seeking Him. We must seek Him first, and thus earliest. Above all things Jesus. Jesus first and nothing else even as a bad second.
The blessing is that He will be found. He reveals Himself more and more clearly to our search…. Happy men who seek One who, when He is found, remains with them forever, a treasure growingly precious to their hearts and understandings.
Lord Jesus, I have found Thee; be found of me to an unutterable degree of joyous satisfaction.

Every spring my husband gets busy with the garden. You can tell he really enjoys doing it, until the weather gets to hot.
We had a great crop of squash and tomatoes. The deer got to the green beans so we only got a little bit of them until they devoured them.
What a bleasing it is to see the way the Lord provides through a garden. And with plenty to share that which has been plucked.
Its a blessing to see the smiles on those you share your fresh vegetables with.
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
Ecclesiastes 3:2 KJV
Yesterday after lunch my daughter and I was washing dishes, just enjoying the moment. She turned her music on from the new cd of Joseph Habedank, and I got the bluetooth speaker connected. There are really some great songs on his new cd and it made cleaning a breeze.
Spending time together in whatever way are priceless moments to me. Quality time spent with family and friends to look back on.
Washing dishes with my daughter makes me remember when my sister and I did the same. One would wash and one would rinse, and we would go to singing and laughing. That is one of my best memories because it was quality time spent together.
There are times when the ladies in the church get together to clean or serve. Even though we are working we are also having a good time of fellowship while we work. We always find something to laugh and carry on about.
I’m so thankful for these little moments in my life to look back on.
Thankful for my family, friends and especially for the good Lord who takes care of us, loves us, and makes all things possible.
O give thanks unto the Lord ; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
Psalms 105:1 KJV
