Wisdom for Every Day

We are smack dab in the middle of the morning when he asks. He’s looking far away, out the window.

“When will God come to town?”

It’s these moments of parenting. Seizing opportunities to teach in the every day. These moments are the most fruitful. You can plan days full of learning, buy stacks of curriculum, but nothing teaches like these moments.

I smile and say, “Oh, God is with us always and we can talk to Him any time. Let’s do that. Let’s talk to Him right now.” I turn and look out the window with him. “Dear God, thank you for today, for the beautiful sky…”

Littlest Guy then bursts, “Dear God, I love you! Thank you for making the pretty trees, the pretty day.”

I look over and he’s smiling the biggest smile. Heavenly joy.

I’ve been praying for wisdom. Not sure why I’m surprised when it’s there just at the right time. When I need it. The Lord, He gives wisdom. And all I do is pray.

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

Grateful for prayer, for wisdom plus…

  • prayer prompts from little ones
  • breathing out…sending up a prayer, breathing in…soaking in Him
  • the privilege of parenting
  • sunshine spilling on piles of dishes from biscuit and gravy breakfast
  • althea out my family room window
  • coffee, yogurt and bookstore date night
  • a Saturday with no ‘have tos’
  • Sunday, resting with two with stuffy noses
  • vegetables from Nana
  • sisters sitting together in church
  • slow cooker yogurt and then smoothies

Counting gifts  #4127-4141.

Get wisdom, get understanding;
do not forget my words or turn away from them. Proverbs 4:5

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.


  1. Precious!
    Thank you for sharing & for the reminder from James
    and Proverbs!

  2. Ah…the little ones will surely lead us! This is beyond wonderful!


  3. When will God come to town? Oh my goodness…how sweet is that?

    Thanks for making me smile this morning.
