Number my Days

Behind the Veil


we see a dim reflection
this side of eternity
the knotted imperfection
of an unfinished tapestry

creation’s artist sees a masterpiece
wisdom weaving its design
everything made beautiful
in its perfect time

When No Means Yes

Wisdom is learning that saying no might actually be the most loving thing we can do. It’s understanding that our no means yes to something greater, and realizing if we’re too busy to stop and love people, we’re too busy. The world will keep spinning if we say no to the lesser things. But it will miss out if we don’t say yes to the best God has for us.

“I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.” (Psalm 57:2)
