Think on These Things ~ Knowledge

As our grandchildren begin a new school year, my prayer above all others is that they all learn more of the Lord and grow closer to him.


My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding,
and if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom,
and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He holds victory in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you.
Proverbs 2:1-11
As a small treat I made these pencils of Rolo and kisses candy.
There are many tutorials online.  I followed this one from Thrifty and Thriving

Best wishes for a great school year to all the kids. My boys are in 12th and 9th grade and were actually ready to go back to school this year. I just hope Yusef buckles down and does better in his final year than he did in the other three. :/ Those candy pencils are absolutely adorable! Must make some of those. :) Best wishes, Tammy
