part 2 Knowledge Wisdom

The Sisters helped
Ruby into the house with the Baby and Ruby shooed
them to the dining room to
sit down while she got Baby settled and got
out the iced tea,,But Ruby forgot
to fill the ice trays and the
Sisters joked that Rubys ice tea tasted just
like the hot tea she had
in the winter,,It was Sun Tea and lukewarm,,But the
Sisters laughed
and assured Ruby they liked it like that,,The Sisters wudnt
talk about
it but they had seen Strange Woman in Rubys Garden and this is
why
they had come for a visit,,Knowlege brot Ruby 2 old 1800s books
on
herbs.. as she knew this wud delight Rubys soul ,,Understanding
had
compassion on Ruby and helped her with encouragment,,She told her
how
fruitful she thot her garden looked,,And how proud she was of Ruby
and
all of her work ..And Wisdom inspired Rubys heart as tho Jesus
was
speaking to her,,Jesus has been made Wisdom unto us"..The fear of
God
is the beginning of wisdom,,Also in another part of the Word it
says
that the fear of God is the beginning of knowlege,,Understanding
and
knowlege were Rubys cousins but Wisdom was Rubys dearest
sister..Ruby
cud sit by the hours and listen to Wisdoms voice,,Prov 3;8
Wisdom was
health to Rubys bones and nerves,,Ruby knew that Wisdom was the
tree
of life,,to those who lay hold of her Prov 3;18 and happy is
everyone
that retains her,,Ruby knew that she had to lay hold of
Wisdom,,and
retain her .. keep her in her heart,,Ruby knew she cudnt be
double
minded,,but that she had to lay hold of Wisdom ..Prov 3;20 ..The
Lord
founded the earth with wisdom and with understanding He
established
the heavens,,He broke the depths up with knowlege...Ruby knew
that if
God made the earth with the 3 sisters that she cud make a home
with
them too,,Prov 4;7 Ruby knew that wisdom was the
principal
thing..therefore get wisdom..and get understanding,,She will bring
you
to honor when you embrace her,,Ruby enjoyed rich fellowship with
the
Sisters that afternoon,,Ruby was young and needed to learn
more,,And
the strange woman hissed in the corner of Rubys dining room and
waited
for the Sisters to leave,,The Sisters saw the evil presence
and
rebuked Strange woman and sent her out of the house.Ruby saw her
go
and was so happy..Soon after the Sisters left to go home to get
supper
,,But they left their gifts behind to help Ruby,,Ruby cud see
them
standing in her kitchen long after they left,,A holy presence
held
their spirits there,,As Jesus had comissioned them to go help Ruby
and
to stay with her,,And Ruby embraced them and lived with them all
of
her life,,They built her and established her and filled her with
holy
knowlege,,Love connieh
