You may have noticed that there was no post Tuesday.
Normally, the reason for me not posting could be any of the following: there was nothing going on and I could not think of anything to say, the internet is down, I am sick or there is no reason.
But Tuesday was different. I, we, the whole family, were busy tearing our house apart. A treasure hunt of sorts.
I looked down shortly before breakfast and realized the main diamond in my wedding ring was gone – GONE!
Talk about a sinking, sick, want to throw-up feeling.
So, we spent the next few hours looking everywhere. The kitchen, bathroom, kitchen and bathroom drains, bedding, drawers, clothes’ pockets, closets …. We were on hands and knees with another person holding a spot light hoping to catch a glint or glimmer. We went through the vacuum bag and trash bags.
Unfortunately, we did not find it. Needless to say, I was bummed all day.
Later a verse came to mind which is speaking of wisdom:
4 If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
5 Then you will discern the fear of the Lord,
And discover the knowledge of God. Prov. 2:4,5
I realized that just as we were all seeking my diamond, a hidden treasure, so we should be seeking wisdom – God’s wisdom.
We will continue to look for my diamond and I am hopeful that it will turn up eventually. I also have a renewed zeal to seek the Lord in my everyday life. Seeing Him in each circumstance. And, teach my children to do the same.
