A great quote on wisdom


Image Credit

"Biblical wisdom begins with a right relationship with the Lord. The wise person believes that there is a God, that He is the Creator and Ruler of all things, and that He has put within His creation a divine order that, if obeyed, leads ultimately to success. Biblical wisdom has little if any relationship to a person's IQ or education, because it is a matter of moral and spiritual understanding. It has to do with character and values; it means looking at the world through the grid of God's truth."  ~Wiersbe

Down by the pond

Dusk is approaching.
Curly Girl, Lil Nut, and Mickey feed the fish.
What is she looking at?
Baby frogs!

Bullet List

  • Bookworm and Curly Girl both did well at their piano festival, although we're still waiting on their scores.
  • It is feeling more like summer than spring, but we've still been getting a cool breeze in the evening which brings temperatures down into the 60's. I hear thunder rumbling in the distance as I type.
  • I've been planning our annual Mother's Day luncheon, which is just a couple of weeks away.  I'm really excited about this year's guest speaker; she is a riot!
  • My blogging friend Liesa @ Life by George recently hosted a giveaway, and I won! Liesa rushed me a package full of goodies.  She did a great job of picking out some personalized items that were just perfect for me.

  • I am thankful for good friends who encourage me when I'm having a rough day.
  • There are 28 school days left until summer break.

On the agenda

I love Saturday mornings.  I got up early and enjoyed the quietness of the house, spent some much-needed time with my Saviour, sipped some delicious coffee from my favorite mug while reading the paper, and now it's time to get moving.

Today I'm taking Bookworm and Curly Girl to a big piano event.  They will be judged in aural theory, written theory, and will also audition.  Curly Girl is finishing up her first year and hopes to pass the primer level today.  Bookworm will reach level 6 after today's evaluations.

The piano event is in a town about 30 miles away, so we plan on making it a "girls day out" with lunch and a little shopping later on.

For my friends who may still be wearing long sleeves today, take a look at our weather forecast and today's high.  Anyone want to trade places?

Azaleas in bloom




Food for the birds




Smells like spring
