Does this otter look content? Sunbathing on his back, kicking back, cracked us up!
No real big happenings the past few weeks. One of those times when everything seems to be fairly ok. No big anything. Sometimes when things aren’t really up or really down I tend to start thinking, “Am I growing in the Lord?, Am I where I am suppose to be?” So what? Now I am creating something that isn’t there, getting all nerved up about nothing. So silly! Contentment, we should be content in Him. Thankful in everything!
Everything is wearisome beyond description. No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content
1 Timothy 6:6
Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.
Sometimes I read these blogs, most of them are inspiring and good and sometimes I think, “how does one find this much drama in every day living? How does one make everything about a lesson learned? EVERYDAY there is something to say about something!”
There is this woman that I know, a mother of many, and she is one of those women that if you are near her you feel blessed. I call her a woman of few words who says so much! She may not speak much, but when she does, you listen. The wisdom that oozes out of her you just want to be near. When she speaks to her children she speaks with authority but when they look at her across the room she smiles a smile of approval and you can just see that child swell up with confidence. When there is a crisis, I have heard her go before the Lord in strength and power because she KNOWS Him so well. This is an example of a ‘woman of contentment’.
This, I want to be!
Now I must show some pictures of the kids and I when we went to the zoo! I love going to the zoo with little ones because they don’t remember from year to year going so it is always a ‘new’ experience and it makes things look fresh even in my eyes to see it thru their’s.
