God who is Wisdom

Below is the first reading from today's service:
Wisdom is radiant and unfading,
and she is easily discerned by those who love her,
and is found by those who seek her.
She hastens to make herself known
to those who desire her.
One who rises early to seek her will have no difficulty,
for she will be found sitting at the gate.
To fix one’s thought on her is perfect understanding,
and one who is vigilant on her account
will soon be free from care,
because she goes about seeking those worthy of her,
and she graciously appears to them in their paths,
and meets them in every thought.
 Wisdom of Solomon 6:12-16
From the
New Revised Standard Version

Wisdom appears in our paths but does not
necessarily give us specific directions...
I love that graciousness!

The above Russian icon is Sophia and her daughters,
Faith, Hope, and Love.

The image below is a Medieval mosaic of 
The Father, Sophia, and the Son

These are lovely, particularly the first one as I have never seen a depiction of Sophia and her daughters. Thanks, and Blessings for these gifts Roberta
