I love the internet. I’ve had the opportunity to meet the most
interesting of people. Today I posted “Happy is the man that finds
wisdom”. I received the following comment…

I thought it was “ignorance is bliss.” Aren’t you blissful?
When I first started blogging, a comment like this would have hurt my
feelings. Really! I would have thought something like, “Oh no! I
have offended someone. I should not have said that.” But after a
year of so, I find all responses interesting. Mostly, I am only hurt
when I perceive my God is likely greaved.
My thoughts on wisdom continue. I picked up an iced coffee at Micky
D’s and read my Bible while Cora was leading Holy Yoga. I found
myself in Proverbs. Over and over the Word talks of Wisdom. I have
been feeling kinda down recently and I stumbled across the idea that
when a man finds wisdom he is happy.
I haven’t been real happy. So, applying logic would conclude I must
not have found wisdom. That could be true, but I think not. Cora has
been praying for wisdom for me for 30 or 40 years. I figure, surely
God has heard and answered by now. At least a little bit may have
been gifted me. 🙂
These seemingly disjunct thoughts really do relate. Typical of the
aethist friends I find reading “37stories” I find they use logic to
back up their arguments. Fortunately in God’s world, logic is a
limitation of mankind and can not be imposed upon the Creator of all
Now faith! That’s another thing…

There’s a saying that goes, “Wisdom comes with age.” For the most part that’s true. But haven’t you found with some folks age arrives all on its own?
I haven’t found that true with you. You continue to write with wisdom and compassion, for your heart is following after God. Just think of the things you’d be writing if you were 25 year ago, and you’ll KNOW you’re growing wiser!
Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the encouragement Jim. I’ve enjoyed the uniqueness of your blog. God bless. archie
