Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Understanding

Understanding is knowing things in their right relationship.
~Dictionary definition ~

Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
~ Proverbs 4:5-7 ~

Hello friends (smile) With wisdom comes understanding. My testing and retesting, of growth opportunities, has the fruit of patience within me multiplying exponentially. (nervous smile)

Today, I refused to be baited with idle words. Although I had to boldly talk loud a few times. Understanding and thanking God for His mercy and His grace!

This was another day to careless and leave the circus smiling. (wink)

Understanding anything can be different for each of us.
Understanding that not everyone has experienced the same things in life.
Understanding that there is more than one way to accomplish something.
Understanding that there is uniqueness to each of us and in the way we communicate.
Understanding change starts with each of us.
Understanding life does go on whether we change or not.
