I pray that your Mother’s Day was the best ever. God granted me the best in a very long time. I would like to share with you something called “SOME WISDOM PLEASE!” written by Jamie Carte. She states, “Wisdom we all need it! Wisdom is the ability to make wise decisions and judgments when others or we are in need of it. Wisdom is also an accumulation of knowledge that one has received by their personal experiences of life or that has been received from another person downloading wisdom into them. We all want to know WHAT TO DO, WHEN TO DO IT, HOW TO DO IT, HOW MUCH, HOW LITTLE, WHO WE ARE TO BE IN LIFE, WHERE WE ARE TO BE and HOW TO GET IN AND OUT OF SITUATIONS! We are all looking for the wisdom to answer our questions in life and to answer them correctly. So how do we get this so valuable commodity that we are all in search of in our lives? God shows us in His word a precious clue He tells us that reverential and… Worship fear of the Lord – that is wisdom God does not want us to fear Him. And we know that fear can also mean to worry. God never gave us a spirit of fear. So if we study His word and follow His leadership none of these will worry us.” Read your “BIBLE”, prayerfully and think.

I want to share this with you it is a story that my pastor preached quite a while ago but it will also end our Mother’s Day holiday. I re-read the account of the Shunammite Woman, written by Kerri Ann Donawa titled “THE WOMAN WHO TOUCH HEAVEN.” As I started to read, I found myself becoming enveloped in her story. We don’t know her name neither do we know the name of her husband, but the significance of the story isn’t in her name nor is it about which she married rather, this story is about a nameless woman, whose valiant spirit captured heaven’s attention. A must read in order to understand the story (2 Kings 4:8—36). Day after day she prepared for the prophet’s arrival, She was great or wealthy by earthly standards, but her true joy was contained in serving this humble, itinerant stranger. He was no longer just a passing visitor; he had been adopted as a vital member of her family. She delighted in the realization that God had blessed her by choosing her to this humble manservant. I encourage you to read her story. God gave her a child and what happened to that child and what she did to get to this Prophet and what the prophet did. After I really started to study my Bible, I found some great stories as we celebrated Mother’s Day this year let us celebrate those among us who nurture and protect those within their care. Let us remember others in LOVE.
