As I walked, tears filled my eyes, the thoughts all parents think one time or another, what can I leave my children that will last forever? When I am in heaven, will my children be able to pass to their generation the things I left them?
The question I asked myself is “Will it make a difference in them and their children? ” When the question was pondering in my mind, the phone rang.
Quickly,” I said, hello.” “Hi, my name is Sky ‘Ana,” the caller said.” I am a doctor.” How Can I help you dear?” “You have already helped me, she said, “I often read your articles about love.” “My mind was going around in circles; I was trying to remember all the articles I had written on love.
“Sky ‘Ana, would you mind telling me which article you are referring to?” Yes, of course, the name of it is “Wisdom and Love” “As I stated earlier in our conversation, I am a doctor.” Often patients ask the question, what they can leave their children that will last forever. Therefore, I took your article, framed it, and hung it in my office. Thank you so much for writing that article. Every time, one of my patients asks me about what they can leave for their families, immediately I ask them to read the article you wrote.
“Sky ‘Ana, thank you for calling with words of encouragement on today.” You are very welcome and thank you. As soon as I hung up the phone, I pulled out that article and read it:
“Wisdom and Love”
The good life begins in the fear of God,
Write this at the top of your list, Clear Thinking, Common Sense, Good Counsel,
Please make sure you meet Lady Wisdom and make Madame Insight your friend,
I am gone now, but I have left you something that will never end,
It is more precious than money in the bank,
Even a car filled with gas in your tank,
This will help you enjoy a good night’s sleep,
It is better than grandmother’s blueberry pie,
If you follow her, she won’t manipulate you or lie,
She will give you something that will never die,
The promotions you get, is no match for her,
She will guard you with Clear Thinking,
You will never be confused,
She will make your life glorious,
Sell everything, but don’t let her go,
If you want to live well, make sure, you understand this,
You must love Jesus from the inside out,
God alone knows the way of wisdom.
We never know how our writing inspire the life of others. What we write are not just words, they touch lives.
