Charles Swindoll Quote

It defies the human mind to find the depths of the mind of God.  We can plumb the depths of another’s mind.  But we cannot begin to scratch the surface of the unsearchable judgments of God.

From Romans 11:33-34:  “O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!”

Wisdom’s Vision

From Daniel 1:17:  “To these four young men God gave knowledge and skill in every aspect of literature and wisdom; Daniel also had insight into all visions and dreams.”

Life’s empty vision

Forsaking this heart

Empty days and nights

Waiting for restart

 

Wisdom comes forward

Warming this cold heart

Heaven’s power stirs

Blessing life’s jumpstart

 

Father’s divine Word

Lifting up this heart

Treasures of mercy

Bringing life’s kick start

 

Victory arrives

Restoring this heart

Wisdom’s vision breathes

Gracing life’s bold start

Fatherhood’s Journey

Growing up, young lad’s treasured dreams

Playing on big league baseball team

 

Fun-filled adventure marks most days

Journey’s actions conquer life’s maze

 

Thoughts of family seem remote

Happy to fish from Dad’s new boat

 

Learning life’s lessons on God’s watch

Scripture’s heroes always topnotch

 

Far too soon, years advance along

Melodies of love, life’s new song

 

Marriage joins young man with his bride

Sons and daughters, soon at their side

 

God’s fatherly lessons made clear

Maturity quiets each fear

 

Fatherhood blesses this Dad’s soul

Making him feel alive and whole

 

Collecting lifetime of keepsakes

Children love his homemade milkshakes

 

Years move quickly, home’s empty nest

Dad’s wisdom guides each child’s quest

 

Creating humbleness of heart

Fatherhood ignites life’s jumpstart

With every sunrise

Creator opens hands

Sharing His Holy Word

With every morning

Creation showers thee

Reaching out to accept

Divine wisdom, life’s key

 

With every challenge

Creator molds and shapes

Treasuring righteousness

Divine wisdom’s landscape

 

With every moment

Creation never waits

Speaking with blessed grace

Divine wisdom dictates

 

With every journey

Creator shares new dawn

Lighting each faithful path

Divine wisdom shines on

 

With every sunset

Creation never rests

Guarding paths of justice

Divine wisdom invests

One Step

Too many tasks

Where to begin?

Overwhelming

Life in tailspin

 

Slowing down, breathe

Dividing tasks

One at a time

Patience unmasks

 

Never alone

Dad’s words come back

Remembering

Wisdom unpacks

 

Taking one step

Then another

Bringing success

Like none other

It is hard for an empty bag to stand upright.

Well done is better than well said.

Much of Franklin’s wisdom was shared in his published pamphlet, “Poor Richard’s Almanack,” which appeared continually from 1732 to 1758. He adopted the pseudonym of “Poor Richard” or “Richard Saunders” as the publisher and author. 

Lucille Ball Quotes

In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.

One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t play to get discouraged.

Lucille Ball (1911-1989) persevered through a quiet film career in the 1930s and 1940s.  Television would be her gateway to stardom with her memorable sitcom “I Love Lucy.”  This comedic actress earned five Emmy Awards for her television work.
