2018 April 21 Saturday in Liberty Hill Texas

54° and fog. Less than a quarter mile in some places although probably more like three quarters of a mile at homes.

And home is where we spent the day. We continue to work toward packing what we are taking back to Iowa with us. As well as doing some deep cleaning and straightening in prep for storing our RV. I have cut ½” pink insulation to fit all of our windows in hopes of avoiding heat and solar damage while it sits during a Texas summer. I’ve already covered the larger windows.

This includes the bedroom. Ella said she felt as though she were sleeping in a cave. I’m not sure if she meant that as a good thing it a not good thing. So I know is she slept until around nine.

Around eleven this morning it began to rain. It wasn’t a heavy rain but it sure was cold when I stepped out to unlatch the door so that I could close it.

Long about five the sun broke through the fog for the first time today.

KNOWLEDGE ITSELF IS POWER*

Proverbs 3:21-26
My son, do not lose sight of these things. Use priceless wisdom and foresight. Then they will mean life for you, and they will grace your neck. Then you will go safely on your way, and you will not hurt your foot. When you lie down, you will not be afraid. As you lie there, your sleep will be sweet. Do not be afraid of sudden terror or of the destruction of wicked people when it comes. The LORD will be your confidence. He will keep your foot from getting caught.”

Seek knowledge but moreover seek wisdom. Knowledge may be power but wisdom is the proper application of that power.

Knowledge is neither good nor evil. Wisdom, however, forces a moral judgement upon the use of knowledge.

There are countless examples of educated fools because, “a little learning is a dangerous thing.”

So I encourage you to learn all you are able. Then pray for wisdom. For wisdom is a gift from God.***
So I encourage you to learn all you are able. Then pray for wisdom. For wisdom is a gift from God.***
