Get wisdom!!

This is something I have been really conscious of this past week- seeking out understanding and wisdom. Especially in making decisions in what has been a really busy week. Check out Proverbs Chapter 2.

Tune your ear to the world of Wisdom;
set your heart on a life of Understanding...
And here's why: God gives out Wisdom free,
is plain spoken in Knowledge and Understanding.
He's a rich mine of Common Sense for those who live well..

And I like this part-

...guard Clear Thinking and Common Sense with your life;
don't for a minute lose sight of them.
They'll keep your soul alive and well,
they'll keep you fit and attractive.
You'll travel safely,
you'll neither tire nor trip.
You'll take afternoon naps without a worry,
you'll enjoy a good night's sleep.
No need to panic over alarms or surprises,
or predictions that doomsday's just around the corner,
Because God will be right there with you;
he'll keep you safe and sound.

So coming to the end of this week I am thankful for:
1) Finishing 2 weeks worth of work in 1 because I am taking a week off and needed to be up to date.
2) My wonderful husband and how supportive he has been this week- emotionally and practically.
3) Seeing God give me wisdom in small decisions (ie what to cook for dinner) and bigger decisions and reminding me not to panic so much.
4) Friends who live in gorgeous places that make great holiday destinations. We are off to stay with a friend in Dunsborough this weekend.
5) Finalising our booking for a night away (no Kalyani) at the end of Oct to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I am really looking forward to that!
