Oh love isn't love till you give it away

The Wisdom To Know What's Important...Nona

Lord, give us the wisdom to know what's important and then to prioritze those things.  --Nona O.

Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. Proverbs 3: 13-18 (New International Version)
