I've heard a lot of people lately giving themes for each New Year. A word that keeps coming to my mind is contentment. This is something that I continually struggle with. As I spend most of my time with my kids at home, I am always thinking of one more thing that would help me have an easier life - whether it be in the kitchen, or for our homeschool, or - whatever! And when I get this item in my mind that I just need to have, I waste minutes thinking about it and researching why I really must have it!
When I get back to basics and am grateful for the abundance that I do have all around me in things, people and spiritual blessings, I am so much more at peace!
This year I desire to have more contentment in what the Lord has already given me.
