There she was on the morning horizon shining! Her bright countenance ablaze with glory. Her heart refined to gold. Her mind sharp with knowledge. Her feet swiftly moving toward her future! She was richly dressed in feminine experience. Upon her flowing tresses she wore a crown of wisdom. Eternal and flaming love were written in her palms and peace fell from her lips.
From whence cometh her strength, one may ask. How did she rise to this noble and beautiful state? By answering the desire to seek after knowledge and wisdom.
One of the most wonderful things about living is that you’re never too old to learn something new. Each day is a new page in the novel of your life. A blank, clean new sheet of opportunity to write on. It’s exciting to realize that each morning that God wakes us up is his gift to us. What we do with the gift of life is our gift to him.
This month we can choose to highlight knowledge and wisdom.
There is a difference between them. Let’s think on this for a minute. The actual definition of knowledge states that it is an accumulation of facts, information and skills through experience and education.
So going to class, reading and studying are all part of accumulating knowledge.
Great stuff to have any day of the week!
So what is wisdom? The definition of wisdom is the soundness of an action or decision with regard to the application of experience and knowledge.
After one has learned, one should apply, and wisdom is the result.
In formula form we could suggest that
Knowledge + Application = Wisdom
A winning combination is the sum of those two powerful opportunities.
Notice that knowledge comes before wisdom. There are no shortcuts in this process! A crown of wisdom will require daily dedication and patience with ourselves and others. But don’t worry: you are marvelous and beautifully designed by our Heavenly Father so take heart in this life’s journey.
The only thing you need is the desire to learn. Then pick something that you’ve been curious about and treat the process as though it is an adventure you’re on.
Write about your experiences so you can refer to and reflect on your progress. This will also help refine your endeavor so you can see the results of your efforts.
When I saw your beautiful faces at our Big Ocean Women retreat, I saw nothing but amazing, talented and capable women. I know you are here for such a time as this. Hope you know that too!
When you see yourself in the mirror, may that reflection be the ideal woman you have written on your heart. Because you are meant to rise and be glorious, she is already part of you! So, allow yourself to dress richly in feminine experience and with swift feet move toward your future. Let the flames of eternal love be in your palms. Become the beautiful vision you see in your mind’s eye, and let us all rise together on the horizon of our life’s quest. May peace fall from our lips because we have been endowed with knowledge and wisdom. Heureux Pour Toujours dans la beauté et la paix! (Let us all live together in beauty and peace). ❤️?
