MIA and Seeking Wisdom

I have been gone for FAR too long!
Blogger was having some issues for awhile that made posting a little tricky and we had holidays, some major changes with the girls and some personal things going on. So the end of December and beginning of January have been a crazy roller coaster and now that we are already halfway through January, I sit here and wonder how on earth it is possible.
 
Foster care has taught me that you never know what will come next. We went from things looking terrible about 2 months ago, to the parents doing really well (by what I was told by the workers), back to them doing pretty terrible again. Visits have been shortened again and some strict tasks have been placed on them, so we'll see what the next few months will bring.
Of course Christmas and the New Year came and went with a flash.
We also got some news during that time that I hope I can share with you soon. This news has added some more things onto our schedule in the past several weeks.
So I think things are starting to settle back into a routine again.
I'm sure God knows I'm needing a routine back! haha!
 
I ran across this verse the other day while reading my Bible and it just struck me in a new way, I hope you can reap some benefits from it also.
 
"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-indeed, 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."
Proverbs 2:1-5
 
I've read that verse many times before, but as I read it this time, it hit me that I need to be searching and striving for wisdom with the same vigor as I would search for silver. And the way I take this verse, God is saying that if we seek it we will find it and will have a greater understanding of God!
Let me tell you I NEED that everyday!!
