Can we ‘learn’ it?

Susie-Wyom-1

Contentment is an inner sufficiency – a satisfaction found through the depth of one’s own life with God, independent of his or her surrounds.

 

I don’t know who wrote the above saying, but I really like it and wanted to share it with you today.  I think so many times we are prone to base our contentment, our happiness, our joy, on our circumstances.  When we do this we tend to ‘react’ to what comes our way.  We sometimes allow the circumstances to have power over us and dictate our thoughts and lives.  

When we have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,  as Paul states in Phil. 4:12, then I think we look at our circumstances and the issues in our lives through different lenses.  

We can move through the difficulties knowing that our God is bigger than all that ‘stuff’ out there.  We can be encouraged that there is more, that our God loves and accepts us.  We believe His word that tells us that He has plans for us that are independent of what is happening around us.  We can walk through the outer cloud of chaos while our heart remains in peace.  We can discover true peace and contentment in  our hearts.

That is really what choosing to be happy and content is all about.

Who do you want to be?

Hot-Fudge-SundaeOkay, this is what I’m talking about =)  Yummy hot fudge sundae with a little brownie on the side!

(Would love to have it but decided to wait on actually eating it… so enjoying the picture)

Thanks for all the wonderful birthday wishes.  

It truly made my day!

 

As I was looking at the various greetings, there were a number from my friends at Louisiana College, what fun to hear from them… if that is you, thanks again.

Seeing the notes from my college friends reminded me of a special time, an AH HA moment, I had while in college.  I was a cheerleader (yea I know, big surprise =)  We were all standing around and I  heard some girls talking. What I heard changed my life.  One of them said “You know that Jackie Holsomback… I’ve never heard her say a bad word about anyone.”

WOW – Right then I decided I wanted people to think that way about me and to make that a priority. Since that day I have made it a point to look for good and say only good about others.

Jackie was indeed a wonderful gal.  I don’t know if I ever told her about that incidence, but I hope I did.  She is no longer with us, she is singing and ‘cheering’ in heaven now. Jackie made a positive difference to me,  her friends, family, and all those around her.  What a legacy!  (January 18 was also her birthday)

 . . .

Who do you want to be? What do you want others to say about you? When they say your name, what characteristic do they think about?  

It’s a choice.  We can decide today ‘who we want to be”, what kind of person, how we live our life. We can decide to change a pattern by starting a new one… just Decide.

Isn’t it great to have so many choices? Colorballoons15

CHOOSE HAPPY – 2015

relaxed senior couple standing in the sunflower garden

CHOOSE HAPPY!  YES!  We all have a choice!  

It may sound strange but you can be happy – joyful – content …  No matter what is going on in your life, no matter what has happened, or is happening, and no matter what your fears and inhibitions.

It’s more than a positive attitude, it’s choices we make everyday, our outlook on life, our faith. It’s knowing that there is more, there is hope, and always another option.

You don’t have to just ‘take it’ and accept what happens… God has more for you.  He loves you and has great things in store for you.

This year out theme is –
