Patricia Simmons


I'm Patricia Simmons, known as Pat or "Wifey" to Bill, Mom to our two grown daughters, and Nona to our four grandchildren. I'm honored to lead a small group in Watermark's Thursday Women's Bible Study, and I have fallen in love with Uganda and its people after serving there last year. As a "mature" lady, I am blessed to mentor women, many who are younger than myself. Many believe age equates to wisdom, but I can attest that this is not always the case. Let's discover where you find true wisdom regardless of your age.

Proverbs 22:17-29

Words of the Wise

17 Incline your ear, and hear the words of the wise,
and apply your heart to my knowledge,
18 for it will be pleasant if you keep them within you,
if all of them are ready on your lips.
19 That your trust may be in the Lord,
I have made them known to you today, even to you.
20 Have I not written for you thirty sayings
of counsel and knowledge,
21 to make you know what is right and true,
that you may give a true answer to those who sent you?

22 Do not rob the poor, because he is poor,
or crush the afflicted at the gate,
23 for the Lord will plead their cause
and rob of life those who rob them.
24 Make no friendship with a man given to anger,
nor go with a wrathful man,
25 lest you learn his ways
and entangle yourself in a snare.
26 Be not one of those who give pledges,
who put up security for debts.
27 If you have nothing with which to pay,
why should your bed be taken from under you?
28 Do not move the ancient landmark
that your fathers have set.
29 Do you see a man skillful in his work?
He will stand before kings;
he will not stand before obscure men. (ESV)


Proverbs 19:21

Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
