Hello again, hope I found you well !
Today I was talking with a friend and in the midst of conversation, I felt a sense of contentment come over me. We don’t have much, but what we have and who we are is enough. What touched me more was that I knew what it was to desire more and how if one wasn’t careful, you could end up with more chaos than contentment.
How often do we find ourselves feeling the lack? Often enough to where we lose track of loved ones and dear friends because we are too busy filling in the gaps. We crane our necks to peek at our neighbor’s yard and gauge our success. Better Job. Bigger house. Better car. Better kids. Better marriage. It plants the seed of doubt in the value of what we have and out of that seed, comes a resentment for having to settle. We miss the blessings and the glories that have been given and the oppprotunity to give thanks. For the job. For house. For the car. For the kids. For the marriage. For God.
May we always give thanks and appreciate the life we have been given.
