THE PICTURE OF THE MONTH
 
May 2011
Wisdom
Sign up here for the
photo of the month
     What are birthdays for? To celebrate and to show love through a few little gifts... But they also allow us to count our days and value what we are doing with them. Moses, a wise man of old, wrote this famous phrase, which we ought never to forget: “Teach us to number our days, so that we may gain a heart of wisdom”.


<<<                                                                     Photo: May 2011                                                                >>>

       And what is wisdom? What use is it? It allows our intellect to make right decisions in all we do and in our lifestyle. And wisdom is fed with values, good value judgements such as giving more importance to what lasts than what perishes, preferring what is profound to what is superficial, wanting what is authentic and not a substitute, discerning between what is trustworthy and what is dodgy, distinguishing between what is absolute and what is relative...

     None of these values show up in the snapshot of a 15 year-old girl’s birthday. These great values only show up in the “film” of life, in the moving picture which, over time, shows the way we think, through the decisions we make. When our birthday comes round, we can see how we have sown these values in the “video” of the preceding years, and we can determine to cultivate and gradually strengthen them in whatever roles we are called to play in the “film” of the coming years.

     Anyway...   All these thoughts are by way of wishing you...   
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!

And may you have many more birthdays, full of wonderful wisdom! We hope that you and all the others, young and old, at our Home will learn to number your days, so that you can make good use of them.
