The Book of Wisdom

I bet walking along, alone on the beach reminds us that our life’s journey is only one way. We need the wisdom to get through it. Wisdom is the prompt for today from the beach.

Also Wisdom

The book of Wisdom is a book within the Catholic Bible in the Latin tradition, a book that is omitted (among seven others) from the Protestant Bible. It is known as the Wisdom of Solomon. It also contains many prophecies of Christ’s coming, passion, resurrection, and other Christian mysteries.

One favorite quote of mine is from the book of Wisdom Chapter 1, verse 4
“For wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subject to sins.”

The Bible quote above explains much about today’s politicians throughout the world.

I See a Story — What do you see?

Keep it Alive!

Lately, I have been spreading my wings and trying to write short stories.
So I begin with this beautiful photo ABOVE.


One day an angel from heaven overheard a mother and her tiny child speaking as they walked through the forest.
"Do you see those beautiful rays flowing down from heaven upon God's earth?  Those are graces He gives us always, but sometimes like now, when the sun is waking up and peeking through the clouds and trees, we can see those graces.  Yes, they flow down, but I feel like they can be thought of as a ladder-like daddy has to climb up.  Up, up if only we could, like the birds we would see so far overall these treetops."
The little angel was so happy to listen; the angel flew back to tell God how much they appreciated Him and His gift of grace. 
God said, "If only the entire world could be so wise.  Peace would be the reward."
