Blog Fridays: “Proof in the Pudding”

Phenomenal happenings

Has anyone ever looked up when and whom had the first proverb? Some would, perhaps, suggest during the reign of King Solomon because of the book of Proverbs in the Bible, yet, I believe it goes even further back. Proverbs, supposedly, are wisdoms given down through our ancestors which would, technically, be Adam and Eve. A pause to say — it’s amazing of how we all came from the same two people. It was through the scattering of the languages that caused them to migrate to other places. These areas, amongst other factors, bringing the pigmentation to the colors of our skin. Fascinating within itself!

Since it’s understood that history is passed down King Solomon had the wisdom to understand that the Isralites belonged to God. In so doing he would request that God would endow him with wisdom to lead the people. Makes perfect sense. Today it is said of “old wives tales” that are, supposed, wisdoms. I’m not too sure about those. I’ve likely heard them before but when I hear some quote them I’m usually lost. LOL. I didn’t grow up in hearing them. My parents used stuff like “In all thy ways acknowledge Him (God), and He shall direct thy paths. ” Sayings such as these were the dominant. I touched on this before but it’s quite relevant and still funny today. My Dad’s wisdom, custom and demand in our household was: respect! “If you don’t you will see the light of day.” Meaning he’d likely take us out LMBO! Too funny. His belief is respect everything. Strong thing to believe, huh? Yet, so true. Life is surrounded in the dealings of others. One might suggest it is love and would be correct! How does love occur? Through respect. Though you treat your neighbor like they are less than gravel he/she turns around to respect (love) your humanity.

There’s always a reason for my “madness” (lol). This morning I was telling my Dad that I have desired to see more manifestation of God. He wound up telling me that God is not really interested in doing things He’s already done — meaning, He’s not gonna open up the Red Sea type stuff. There’s no need. Much has changed since those days of captivity. Just think, the weapons which men have created can blow up an entire country. There’s simply no need! He told me that God is interested in being a Father; take out time to be there in your life. Notice “In all your ways acknowledge Him.” What are the chances that I’d use that particular proverb? You know how when you’re writing you don’t, necessarily, know where you’re going to end up. You just write and it unfolds as you’re going. Now, admit it, that’s crazy cool!

Which brings me to the “Proof is in the Pudding.” The proverb means once you have tasted, experienced, tried, etc., the evidence is there. The longing for God’s face is the everyday I write and it opens; the singing of the birds; the rotation of an object on an axis which, as is understood, is merely floating. We’ve tried to explain the phenomenon of different things that we’ve witnessed but much can’t be explained. We hint at the idea of a god but do not give Jehovah God His due.

The next time you write think of how that idea opens up to you. Then take the time in wonder, and rather you believe or don’t believe UNDERSTAND and realize God that there’s …. “Proof in the Pudding!”

Blog Fridays: Please, Give Up!

Sure about that?

What in the heck?! The world’s mounted platitudes have become ridiculous! A mere assumption, if you will, that it’s THE gateway toward happiness. WRONG!! I disagree with the picture posted: “When you feel like quitting … Think about why you started.” I grant it bears some truth to it, but it empties the entirety of the “Different Situation’s Act” (lol).

Proverbs are around for a reason. They are guides toward wisdom and, because wisdom supposed to be the principle thing we seek after, we should actually take out time to not be so hasty to assume these “such encouragements” are readily the way to go!

I won’t leave you hanging! Example: you and another driver are on the freeway. The other driver is showing great amounts of recklessness when suddenly traffic hits. The lane he/she is in have to merge over because there’s road work ahead. This driver speeds up to pass you noting the highway has reached its end, but you have the right of way. Is it necessarily courtesy that causes you to allow them in or is it because the recklessness prior too? It is this moment you take that “When you’ve started …” and throw it out the window. Concede to defeat! It is better to not cause a wreck than to place yourself and others in harms way. Yes, it won’t always be fair, but that is the way it must be for WISDOM’S SAKE!!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ….

Wondering

“A fool can be counted as wise if they just … (clears throat) … shutup!” It’s not exactly how it’s quoted in the Bible, yet, packs a power punch of truth! The small things that mean so much as we get older. We are taught early on certain things like our ABCs and 123s. We use them, pretty much everyday. I’m intrigued that we’ve been prepared to go out into the world to deal with the world, yet, unequipped to the wisdom it takes to handle what’s out there.

The play on words are funny. I know you counted because that’s what we’ve been trained to do. Do it again: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, … A, B, C .. (lol). The theme is my wisdom principle for the day. “A fool can be COUNTED as wise …” Obviously, the theme’s count is not the same as the context of the proverb, but, again, it packs a power punch to how some lack wisdom. The account is: “A fool can be counted (included, incorporated, considered, etc.) if they just don’t use their mouth too much; some of your are probably thinking … at all! (LMBO —laugh my butt off).

I guess that will be tomorrow’s blog: “A fool is known by the multitude of words.” They, again, can be 123’d if they just ……. you got it!! (lol)
