Discontentment or Contentment


Discontentment happens when I don't have what I want.
Contentment happens when I realize I have so much more than I deserve.

I just got my first speakers for my computer. Imagine my pleasure when visiting your blog I heard one of my favorite hymns - Fanny Crosby's "All the Way my Savior leads me"

How did you know that's what I've been fighting??

For a week or more I've been feeling discontent with our house. It's not big enough. I can't fit in each room what I want to fit in. It's always looking messy.

Thankfully, the Lord reminded me that my attitude can change a lot. So, I changed my attitude - and rearranged two bedrooms and the mudroom. And now I feel better.

The house is still small; it still looks messy; and I still don't have room for the two bookcases I want, but I'm happier! (and praying for an addition to the house - and the money to pay for it! *L*)
