Does Anyone have a Bag of Sand? A really heavy bag of sand?


I believe the antihistamines/decongestants are getting to me. Maybe not. Aren’t we suppose to be an educated country?

Lately I have come across some people from different venues who I would like to throw a bag of sand at. Now to make sure it works it has to hit them on top of their head so maybe it will really shake them up so they ask me,

“What are you doing? Why did you do that?” so I could respond by saying,

“Listen buddy, wake up! don’t you get it? you are suppose to be an educated, smart, intelligent human being? You must have missed the day God gave out common sense because you have none!” My fellow bloggers I am not speaking of you so don’t run away! We have to stick together here! We are on a mission!

I think people keep getting on the wrong elevator; you know the one they don’t have any idea where it is going?

You may be thinking: “ummm, what about her? who is she to throw sand?”

Let me tell you. I had sand in my eyes for so many years that is why I see others who still have it;  only they are older and suppose to be much wiser. This is experience people!

You know the saying I like to use, “I was blind, now I see?” well get some glasses. I did and then I saw all I was missing. really. I would find dishes I had washed that were dirty simply because I wouldn’t go get my eyes checked to wear glasses.  I think in Proverbs God calls that “pride?” That commercial about the woman who thinks she is climbing into a cab only it is a police car because she has no glasses? ok you get it.

Now I am not completely out of sand in my own eyes. Particles of it often get in them but I am quick to wash them out. Partly because I am allergic to dust but that is not my point here.

One of the reasons I started washing the sand out as often as possible was because I made remarks or stupid comments that I later thought were so embarrassing I wanted to use the sand to make a sand castle. I use to have a sand box when I was a kid. It was so much fun to play in; except when I couldn’t sit down the next day.

Anyway, you know that King Solomon in the Bible? You know the guy who had all the wives but was smarter than anyone? Well,  I decided I wanted to be  like him. NO! Not have the wives (I have never understood that part; how did he get away with that?)

I wanted to be wise; to speak with wisdom which is different from intellect. Not that I don’t have intelligence but don’t ask me ever to do any math.

So what did I do? I prayed and asked God for wisdom. Hours, days, weeks and months and years I have studied God’s word for wisdom. I hear you laughing like you are wondering when I am going to learn it? Be careful; there is more than one bag of sand here.

God spoke and told me: Luke 21:14-15 “But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves.  For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.” That is it. It is so easy. When you let God speak for you, embarrassment ends up in the sand truck.

The problem with intelligent, so called smart people is they don’t know how to read the Bible! You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink it!

My point to this entire blog post is we need to pray for smart people. They maybe didn’t flunk out of Nursery school, but they are driving without the keys.

The keys are in the Bible and you can’t get that in public school these days. Fact is you can hardly get it in a Christian college! (the state of my Alma Mater)

God’s wisdom goes far beyond intellect and thank goodness how to add 2 +2. God’s wisdom gives you directions, a guide for life and vision to be able to put one foot in front of the other when your life is falling apart. You won’t learn that in a classroom today. God’s wisdom gives you a foundation of his words to use for those who don’t! As I just wrote that I have to laugh at some of the issues I have been reading about from friends in my life that I simply am asking, “what planet did you fly to after we graduated? or that you played too much without your helmet?

It really isn’t that hard folks. God has more wisdom to give us than we can imagine. For me, I want to be able to hear the Holy Spirit whisper in my ears the words of God in speaking his truth. The way to do that, is to read it. Study it. Meditate on it. Live it. Believe it. Then you can really “Spread the wealth.”

Well, I have to go now. I hear the sand truck in the driveway. You won’t believe how many bags of sand are in it.

  1. Another winnner, Cathy! Love it…going to tweet this one for ya.

  2. This is pure win. I mean, about “I was blind, and now I see.” even the people around me aren’t mindful of where they’re heading. A lot of people are, even talented, well-educated ones. Your point is pure win.

    • I wrote this in response to a long time friend I have reconnected with on fb who has consistently blasted my posts for my beliefs. He is a liberal who has sent me corrections of many of my posts which have been copied from our blogger friend Samuel of Gilgal. After a few corresponding responses to get him to understand he basically told me I had no right to be on facebook. That went over the line with me. I wrote him back a very longgggg message telling him otherwise.

      I have found in people who do this, they seek out others who disagree with them to cyber attack them. To some extent it is a type of stalking. I loved this friend for years. We were close but I don’t know what happened to him. The truth is if he was so sure of his own beliefs he wouldn’t be reading mine.

      God bless friend,
