Hello everyone! Well, another month has almost come and gone, but I have managed to get another new wallpaper put together for you. This one is entitled, "Wisdom", making it my 92nd wallpaper for my gallery.

I like variety. And when it comes to wallpaper, I still have so many ideas and concepts that I'd like to create my "walls" for. The idea of making a wallpaper on "wisdom" had been on my mind for a while now. I also had a clear image in my mind of using Bibles for this concept to convey wisdom, as there are depths of wisdom and knowledge to be found in the Word of God.

Wisdom is precious. It's something that everyone should always continue to gain more of. In Proverbs, King Solomon, who was the wisest person to have ever lived, said of wisdom: "Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding." (Proverbs 4:6-7, NIV) You can really sense how valuable wisdom was to Solomon, more valuable than riches in comparison.

Wisdom cannot be given away. We must discover it for ourselves through our own experience. That could explain why it should be seen as so valuable. We must gain wisdom through our own journey. Now, we can take advantage of people's mistakes and learn from them. That is what the wise do. I'd actually consider that part of the experience of the journey - through observation. But I'm sure many of you know firsthand that personal experience helps drive home the lesson in the clearest form though.

The point here is that we take the effort to find wisdom and use it. Then, keep on acquiring more. It is a journey that should never end until we end.

I'll close this with one last quote I feel sums it all up pretty well. It comes from George Santayana who said, "The wisest mind has something yet to learn."

Stay wise - keep learning.smile
