It takes so little to make some people happy.
My grandson is thrilled when he gets to "swim" in our spa. A friend gets great joy from sitting down to the table and eating. My husband thinks there's no greater fun than to catch a fish and then throw it back in the water (I haven't figured that one out yet).
We live in such abundance in America. It is so easy to accumulate "things." Soon we become bored with those "things" and need more to try and satisfy our almost insatiable need for more.
God tells us to be content in whatever situation we are in.
Could you be content if you had to walk miles to town? Some have to.
Could you be content if you had to wear plastic liter bottles for shoes? Some have to.
Could you be content if you had to struggle to feed your family? Some have to.
Do we need to "downsize" our wants? Do we need to ask ourselves if we have become consumed with "things."
Look around you. What could you eliminate and still be happy? Your answer will determine whether you are bound by "things."
Hoping I can be happy without lots of "things," Gloria
