Blanket

Many years ago when I was quite ill, the one thing I could do, and would do, was to crochet. I would learn many valuable lessons along the way as I crocheted.

At first, I found it very difficult to finish a project, because I wanted the finished project to be perfect. I would pull out the project to start over, becoming more and more frustrated along the way.

Looking back now, I also know that God was leading even then, but at the time, I thought they were just random thoughts coming to my mind like:

“Don’t let your mistakes hold you back, keep going forward.”

“Keep striving for perfection.”

It was only when I read in one of the craft magazines that every mistake could be a design, that I felt a bit free to continue.

Anxious moments came when the projects were finished, and someone wanted to purchase an item. They seem to see only the beauty, while the mistakes still loomed large before me.

So, I guess you could say my blanket wisdom all started with my passion for crochet.

Begin the day with God!

He is your Sun and Day!

He is the radiance of your dawn;

To Him address your day.

Take your first walk with God!

Let Him go forth with thee;

By storm, or sea, or mountain path,

Seek still His company.

Proverbs Speaks Of The Prudent

Prudent

img_4453-squirrel-copy

A prudent and far-sighted person sees the evil [of sin] and hides himself [from it], But the naive continue on and are punished [by suffering the consequences of sin]. Proverbs 22 : 3

The way of the [arrogant] fool [who rejects God’s wisdom] is right in his own eyes, But a wise and prudent man is he who listens to counsel. Proverbs 12 : 15

The [arrogant] fool’s anger is quickly known [because he lacks self-control and common sense], But a prudent man ignores an insult. Proverbs 12 : 16

Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13 : 16

The naive or inexperienced person [is easily misled and] believes every word he hears, But the prudent man [is discreet and astute and] considers well where he is going. Proverbs 14 : 15

The mind of the prudent [always] acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise [always] seeks knowledge. Proverbs 18 : 15
