A contented life...

"...I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. "
-Philippians 4:11-13

"It's so much easier to learn to love what you have instead of yearning always for what you're missing, or what you imagine you're missing. It's so much more peaceful."
-Anna Quindlen
One True Thing

"Yes, in the poor man's garden grows
Far more than herbs and flowers-

Kind thoughts, contentment, peace of mind,

And joy for weary hours."

-Mary Howitt

Have a wonderful Friday!
