Wisdom and Understanding

I prayed,I prayed,
Almighty God,
Wisdom I need,
I believed,
Had no doubt,
And wisdom was,
Handed down indeed,
Wisdom was lonely,
So I went back to Him,
And this time He bestowed,
Understanding,
Wisdom and understanding,
Roll hand in hand,
One the idea,
The other the plan,
A little greedy,
I am back again,
I need expression,
So I can express,
Wisdom and understanding,
To my family and friends....

    What a great combination, when tempered with love it will be ready for the masses. Solomon asked for wisdom and God granted him wealth as well. May you have the wisdom of Solomon and the heart of his father David!

    I can't help smiling as I read this one Richard its true that God gives richly and freely; and its good to ask him for these things..) Oh and the comment you left on my page should have been directed at Michelle; who is the author of the fiddlers cat, yours Joe.
