I wonder "who" came up with the idea that an old owl is wise! Does that mean a young owl is foolish? I like owls, and have a few collectables around the house. My favorite is a painted owl on a gourd done by my daughter April.
I have been attracted to owls partly because of their claimed wisdom. That points me to scripture, especially to Solomon's writings in the book of Proverbs. The other reason I like owls is because they just seem so restful, not many ruffled feathers with an owl!
An occasional "who" is what we can expect from owls. That is not much of a vocabulary; but maybe the less said the better! Solomon sure had plenty to say about that, "Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is counted prudent (Proverbs 17:28 NAS)."
I guess this must be something I am encouraged to remember. In elementary school we had basic French classes. I recall very little except the French phrase for "Shut your mouth!" Who, me?
