Simple leaf

I offer the following description:  Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every situation.

The Simple Woman’s Daybook * September 28, 2009

~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

outside my window . . .
a lonely cricket, light wind
*****

i am remembering . . .
a lovely weekend in VA with my family, rainy afternoon, a nap, front porch coffee, car ride with our son, time to pause and think
*****

i am thankful  . . .
for the people I work with, father-daughter time, safe travels, God’s daily provision
*****
from the kitchen . . .
turkey-potato-squash soup, bountiful peppers and tomatoes from the garden
*****

I am thinking . . .
the apple festival this weekend & house full of friends and family
*****

around the learning rooms . . .
curriculum and books to give away, Saxon math test, book bag full and ready to travel
*****

I am reading . . .
Glenn Beck’s Common Sense
The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment
by Jeremiah Burroughs
*****

my favorite things . . .
quiet mornings alone
*****

a few plans for the rest of the week . . .
preparing yard sale items, food for the weekend, cleaning out areas of the home and garage, spaghetti sauce with garden tomatoes, snacks for the weekend

*****

a verse of Scripture . . .
I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content”
Philippians 4:11

Here is a picture thought I am sharing . . .
 

 

fall wind 

pearls and shells

 

1 Thessalonians 4:11

” . . . and to make it your ambition
to lead a quiet life and attend
to your own business . . . “
