Content


It has been been wonderful reading all the Charming girls blogs, and seeing what "word" will take new meaning in their lives as the new year begins.  Finally, my "word" has come to me...I thought about a few words, like joy, happiness, faith, kindness, compassion, gratitude...and wound up with content.  I decided that if I can learn to be content with who I am and where I am in this life, it changes everything. Everything I need to be happy, I all ready have...right here and right now.  
 God has provided for me and always will, even when my faith ebbs in and out.  I am grateful for my life, my gifts, my family and my friends.  
My blogging friends who inspire me everyday...thank you!

"Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. 
When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you."

Sharon, what a perfect word! Isn't it all one can hope for- to be content.
Your word is making me want to sit and contemplate on what it is that makes me feel the most content.
Thank you for the nudge

"Content" is a perfect word to use along with the others. If you are content then all else will fall in place with your life.
