O Sapienta

O Wisdom, O holy Word of God, you govern all creation with your strong, yet tender care. Come and show your people the way to salvation.

When we see the word "wisdom" we often think of knowledge and knowing. We think of wisdom as the ability to look at facts and situations and then make wise decisions. The power sits with us.
Today, let's take a moment to pause and look at creation with new vision. See the world, see your family, see your own life as God sees all things -- compassion, love, and forgiveness. For this is the wisdom of God for everything, without exception. 

O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
Who orderest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
