The Art of Contentment.....



Dearest Readers,

Contentment... being cozy and comfortable inside your own four walls... happy and loving with those around you... creative and inspired with the things you already have....

 keeping your servant's heart even when you have less than nothing to give.... making do..... enjoying your PB&J out in the garden.... mending....


tending.... putting by..... ignoring the lumpy bedroom carpet (that won't stay stretched).... covering worn spots on the sofa with a pretty throw and thinking it actually looks better that way.... pretty music....scented candles..... much needed rain.... all your children tucked in their beds at night.... your spouse by your side...

Contentment must be practiced....



Each day ended with prayers of gratitude sent lovingly towards
Heaven

Contentment...yours for the taking.

Yours so kindredly,
Shan

Oh, I do think contentment is a way of thanking God for what He has given.

Love all the word pictures this brings to mind. :)

Isn't it funny how if you get your eyes off of what is really important, how you can start losing that contented feeling? Thanks for the reminder, that we have a choice in whether we have contentment or not. God Bless
