The first words of wisdom come, appropriately, from Big Mommy herself. We heard these words over and over and over again. Some of the stories, “Trugars”, from her childhood were not happy ones, but she wanted better for us, and so she gave us love.
“I have peace and joy and try to give all I can to others so that their life can remember some good I’ve passed along. I love all my family I’m responsible for and hope some good was there.”
There definitely was good there. A lot of good. And I’m sure you all have stories to share from the wise women (or men!) in your life as well. But before we dig into your words of wisdom, I wanted to address the title of this theme. Last week, I referred to “Wise Words” Wednesday, and as you can see, this week it’s “Words of Wisdom” Wednesday. I’ve also batted around Women of Wisdom Wednesday, Wise Women Wednesday, and others, and I just can’t quite decide. I’d like to open up the floor for suggestions and votes, and if your original suggestion becomes the new working title, you’ll win a prize!
As for submissions, please add your comment or link below with any wisdom you have gleaned from those around you, or perhaps experiences you have had when discipling younger women, or just something you learned this week in your walk with God. I’m not too particular; I just want us to learn from one another and, especially, learn from those who have gone before.
One caveat, and this comes from Big Mommy: “There are some places in our lives that are for us only, not to be shared, so I left them out, as they are shameful or hateful to my memory. I ask Jesus to go back to so many wrongs I did along the way and forgive me of the things I want forgiven. I thank Him for setting me free as I committed things before I knew Him as my Forgiver and Savior.” Please be discerning in the details that you share, and please remember that God’s forgiveness wipes away all the ugliness.
I can’t wait to hear the wisdom you have to share!
