"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content
with what you have..."
I have a confession. I have shopped this year. It started with buying myself a birthday present, then it was a sundress purchase for our Cabo trip. We now have new carpet, a new garage door and we are currently waiting on the delivery of new furniture. Oh and who doesn't want a new swim suit for summer? I fed the beast.
Living in a culture that fosters lavish taste through commercials and magazines and encourages indulgence through credit cards makes starving the beast harder than ever. The Lord promises to supply all our needs and calls us to be content with what we have. One of the fruits of the Spirit is self control.
I have a responsibility to my husband and especially to my children. I want them to be content with what they're blessed with.
Like sunshine and good friends.
Healthy beautiful bodies that can jump and swim.
Family, young and old that live close by.
Cute clothes and new couches pale in comparison to the high I get from watching this little one.
I am re-committing myself to frugality. I am committed to contentedness with what I'm blessed with...because honestly it's more than I could have ever dreamed of.
