John - We all enjoy your translations and thank you. Today's translation is very interesting. I never heard of "The Daughters of Wisdom."

Diane S. - Thank you also for leaving little messages for us. Yes, we are lucky to have John here to bring further inspiration to these cards.

No wonder the sister looks so serene, "A daughter of wisdom" what a wonderful name for a congregation for He is All Wise,there is a wonderfull hymn, that mentions that I cant recall how it starts just now but it ends "Tis only the splendour of light hideth thee"

Immortal! Invisible!God Only Wise.
In light inaccessible, hid from our
eyes.
All laud we would render,the Ancient of Days,
All Mighty! All Glorious!Thy Great Name we praise.
