I often wonder about the meaning of wisdom; I know that “the fear of The Lord” is the beginning of wisdom… But does that mean actual fear? Or what we would call respect? Or, perhaps, the acknowledgement that He is ineffably ‘Other’ – we have a God who cannot be confined or delineated in human terms – except that He chose to be. Understanding that miracle is, perhaps, the beginning of Wisdom.
I am currently working hard on a family icon – I do love these. To be able to create something for a family to pray with is a great blessing. I hope to complete it this week, before summer break begins in earnest.
