Thanks to all my readers of Pearls of Wisdom Blog

Sorry, I neglected you over time, but I was so busy writing and creating that I spent so little time responding to the ones that I actually reached. I am not sure what happened but all of a sudden it appears that my essays are being read. To you who commented on my works, I…

He Might Not Give You What You Want

Back home we used to say, “Our God might not give us what we want but He (sho-nuff) sure enough give us what we need.” I personally didn’t agree with that statement when I was younger, not really because I wanted what I wanted and was very disappointed when I didn’t receive it. That feeling…

I Love The Lord and He Loves Me

I have a brother in Christ and Bible Study friend that uses a similar statement that I will borrow from him. He says, “I love the ladies and the ladies love me.” Our group consists of over a dozen or so males, all up in years. We are mostly retirees who still remember our days…

Does God Have A Hand in What’s Happening with the World

Most people would consider this to be a rhetorical question but that depends upon whether or not they believe in a Divine God. Unbelievers think the universe just evolved with life and coming about all on its own power. If they only knew how complicated and sophisticated only one facet of existence was they would…

The Wide and Popular Roads

I think it is our basic nature to follow the popular road and to want to be with the “in-crowd.” People who are eccentric are considered weird and Lord knows we do not want to be even considered strange. However, being weird or strange is not always a bad quality. A lot of eccentric people…

All About YOU Dear Lord

I called out unto the Lord He heard my cry He lifted my soul up into the heavens To see what I wanted. Words did not come to me For I knew not what to ask There are no words to explain Our quest to seek His approval What can I ask of the Most…
