Celebrate The Journey to Contentment


The art of life is to know how to enjoy a little and to endure much.
~ Unknown Author ~

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
~ Philippians 4:11-12 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well. Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

Life moments give experience. Life moments require decisions. Life moments test.

Life is a journey of moments. This week, I celebrate all the things and stuff, as well as, the Y moments that became a journey to contentment.

Praise The Lord for grace that sustains.

Contentment is a learned choice. Contentment understands it is, what it is.

Adapt and adjust. Forgive. Let go. Move on. Be free.

Contentment is inner strength and peace in action.

The power of contentment brings a liberating mindset to endure.

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord. Enjoy your weekend.

Everything around us tells not to be content, but if we sit back, we realize that it’s not true. There’s no reason not to be content and thankful for that.
