Everyday Contentment - #4

Take a moment to embrace contentment, to learn to love the everyday things that we tend to overlook or take for granted. 

I'm not referring to big things, or expensive things.

I'm talking about the nitty gritty, those everyday tasks, objects, thoughts that make our lives what they are.

Day 15


It's all around us and unfortunately 90% of the time it goes unnoticed.  We are so busy with our lives, with work and school and house stuff, running around that a lot of what is around us just seems to disappear into the woodwork.

Not for me.

I have made it a habit of really seeing things around me.   Of taking notice.


Of marveling at the blue of the sky, the white puffy clouds, the green grass, the beautiful intricate tree trunks and the flowering buds of a plant.

It takes but one second, to stop, to appreciate and to thank God for the beauty he has allowed us to live in.


What are YOU content with?

I'm working on being content with what we have. Not replacing it with something new when it works just fine.
