"Contentment is one of the flowers of heaven,
and if we would have it, it must be cultivated;
it will not grow in us by nature."
Spending some time with the subject of contentment today. How natural it is in us to complain, to want more, to see that green, green grass just over the fence... it's as easy as breathing. But in truth it is life-stealing, this discontent that is so easy for us.
Life and peace, rest, joy, hope... they are all firmly planted in being content just where we are. No matter the circumstance, the physical location, the state of being, we are to be content.
Striving toward that kind of breath of fresh air ♥
