ORIGINALLY POSTED 4/18/2016 – ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
This pencil sketch has appeared on my page many times. It was done quite a while ago and remains one of my favorites. I love art that tells a story and this one certainly does. We all search for the elusive wisdom that comes with a life well lived, but may not always find it.
Wisdom grows from experience, through trial and disappointment,
It can also evolve through times of peace, satisfaction and contentment,
However it is obtained, we can be confident that it comes from God,
One of many,
Given by the Creator,
Not always easy to achieve,
Often lost during times of decision,
Often deferred for the sake of self gratification,
Often defined by circumstances,
Like hope, we often lose it when faced with difficult circumstances,
But it is a gift nonetheless – for our ultimate good.
