For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Sunday's Gift to you . . .

Happy Sunday to you - here's a litte prayer -

"God, if I can't have what I want, let me want what I have." I don't know who wrote it, but I think it's a good one. What do you think? Some times simple is the best.

That corgi :) said...

I like it; it talks about being content, not with what is happening in your life, but just with what you have and content with God who is in control and knows what is best :)

Hi there! I do love that quote! Happy people are satisfied with what they have.

Sharon said...

Our pastor did a whole sermon on that thought - using it as the perfect definition of contentment. May the Lord not always give me what I want, but always give me what He thinks I need.

GOD BLESS!
