This is a good truth to remember! <3 It's so easy to fall into the trap of having a bad attitude.

Beautiful "Pearls" of Wisdom. Sometimes it's hard to be content but I'm learning.

Oh, what a wonderful quote by Martha Washington, and it's so true. If we live according to our circumstances, we will not be happy. We must make a choice to be joyful in all circumstances, which means a change in our disposition. And of course, it's all about contentment in the Lord, who controls all things. Sorry it's been so long, dear Kelly-Anne, but it's so nice to visit with you today. Hugs, sweet friend!

Hello dear Kelly-Anne! So happy to have time today to stop for a visit with you! I've got my tea cup filled with hot tea, on this cool rainy day, and it gives me great joy to stop by today for a "virtual" visit! Such true words you have shared today... our contentment can never be in things, for we do not have any guarantees in this life... but if our contentment comes from HIM... why we are rich ALWAYS! We just need to remind ourselves to look to Him, and not around us for the things we need :) Hugs and love sent to you today dear friend!
