And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 ~

The Journey to Contentment 

A contented heart is a calm sea in the midst of all storms.
~ Anonymous ~

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
~ Philippians 4:11 ~

The journey to contentment is learned. Contentment is a mindset that develops with personal growth and maturity as we face life situations.

Contentment is a steady state, of well-being, for what we have and where we are today. Praise The Lord.

There’s no conditions to contentment. In whatsoever state, to be content.

To be content, in whatsoever state, is a beautiful thing because its temporary.

Life and/or circus situations teach or change something within us. It’s part of growing and maturing.

I’ve shared about the circus that pay my wages, until recently, I found contentment in that environment. Contentment comes from within. Praise The Lord.

Keep the faith and enjoy your weekend! See you Monday. I’m working this weekend.

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just shall live by faith.  Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Thought For Today – Love

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ~


Make it a great day.

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

I Know Something Good About You

EQUINOX

00-snoopy-and-charlie-brown-friends

Wouldn’t this old world be better

If the folks we meet would say – 

“I know something good about you !”

And treat us just in that way ?

Wouldn’t it be fine and dandy

If each handclasp, fond and true,

Carried with it this assurance  – 

“I know somethnig good about you !”

Wouldn’t life be lots more happy

If the good that’s in us all

Were the only things about us

That folks bothered to recall ?

Wouldn’t life be more happy

If we praised the good we see ?

For there’s such a lot of goodness

In the worst of you and me !

Wouldn’t it be nice to practice

That fine way of thinking, too ?

You know something good about me,

I know something good about you !

Motivation For Monday

Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.
~ Grandma Moses ~

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.
~ Romans 8:28 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well. Motivation for Monday, now brings a smile to my face. Life is what we make it.

I smile, for the opportunity, to stay positive, while grateful that I’m better than two Monday’s ago.

It’s about finding a fresh perspective to keep a positive attitude.

We can also choose. The world will not end should we stumble. Thank God for his mercy and his grace.

One day, it may become Fun Day Monday.

References to Romans 8:28

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
~ Ephesians 1:1 ~

According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
~ Ephesians 3:11

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
~ 2 Timothy 1:9 ~

Keep the faith and enjoy your day!

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
