Needing some rest…

This week Noah and I have both been really sick. It started out with Noah screaming for two days:( We went to the doctor on the first day of screaming but the doctor couldn’t find anything…but it probably didn’t help that Noah was screaming so much and pushing him away that he didn’t get a good look in his ears to find a middle ear infection (which was discovered on the second day of screaming by a different doctor:). Then yesterday I felt so ill, I can’t remember ever feeling so sick…but another doctor found today I have tonsillitis and strep throat:) Probably caused by the same nasty germ that caused Noah’s ear infection:( Thankfully Dan was able to come home from work and look after us both! Thank you Dan! An upside of being sick has been consuming many bowls of ice-cream and getting some extra sleep:)

In amongst the many hours and hours of Hi-5 and In the Garden DVD s I have been thinking a lot lately about wisdom…
and have been reading lots about it in the book of Proverbs.
Here are some verses that have stood out to me:

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures…Proverbs 24:3-4
I tend to think that the “house” described in these verses are an analogy for our life…..

A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense…Proverbs 19:11
I’m pondering and praying that I will be wise:)
