Sept.5/18 – Contentment isn’t getting what we want but being satisfied with what we have.

contentmentcontentmentSometimes I find this difficult with all the social bombardment of advertisements. Telling us what we need and what we should have to be complete and happy. It’s a temporary best thing till the next best thing. It’s a choice of the heart. Be content.

“Not that i speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content.”                                                                 Philippians 4:11

Peace to you.

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
