After looking up “shrewdness” to make sure I was ok with the meaning of it,
I started to think on who I knew that personified that characteristic.
And my friend Marion came to mind.
She is an ordinary middle-aged woman. Not one for overdressing, often overlooked at first glance.
Simple clothing, average home, nothing that would make her stand out in a crowd.
Working by the age of 15 meant only a high school education.
Yes you might overlook Marion if you were to take her at face value.
And yet, over the years I have known her she has shown great insight and wisdom.
She is astute in the ways of man and god.
Wrap this up with a loving heart and you have a rare gem.
When I have had problems and there have been a few, she has been the sounding board I have used.
I know I can trust her to tell the truth even if I don’t like to hear it.
She shows a keen intellect and deep thinking.
I am amazed at what she knows and how she has taken that knowledge and made in work in practical situations.
Shrewdness is only one of the words that come to mind when I think of her.
Kind, thoughtful, sincere, knowledgable, generous, tenacious, sagacious, willing to learn from god, teachable, dependable, my most precious friend.
I hope that you too are blessed with a Marion in your life.
