THANKFULNESS AND CONTENTMENT
This is an Australian picture. I did not take it but found it in a folder of ‘stored’ Animals’. Thank you to the photographer and whoever sent it to me.
After a hard day at work these dogs indicate to me the absolute gratitude for what they have and the contentment of being together in the experience.
‘Give thanks with a grateful heart’ is the psalmist’s regular theme but Contentment goes deeper. Finding, as travellers on this highway of life that we can be thankful for what is about us ….indeed for many and various things.is necessary and vital. We can indeed be thankful for even the seemingly ‘little’ things like ‘getting up’ ‘Breathing in a new day.’
However, true CONTENTMENT only comes when we sit , settle and KNOW physically, emotionally and spiritually that no matter what situation we find ourselves in we are content. This place does not necessarily lead to JOY. This place may never make us HAPPY in the hyped ordinary way of things.
CONTENTMENT is a whole of life consuming place where peace reigns.
The Apostle Paul wrote. ‘I have learned to be content in ALL circumstances, in my lack and in my plenty.’ Phil: 4:11
This day, this coming week lets ensure that we take the twins with us on our journey.
May Thankfulness and Contentment wash over all our lives in waves of reality.
Live! Love! Make a difference to someone else’s day and week.
