Be content

Today I've been doin A LOT of thinking since yesterday and so I thought I'd design a little graphic for today, and hopefully a lot more Thursday's....

My devotional today, and the last 3 days has focused on Ecclesiastes 9:9 "Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun—all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.". Today's was on being content with your spouse and not pointing out his/her flaws or what upsets you and not longing for what others have. The greatest quote I heard today was in this devotional quoted by Erma Bombec, " the grass usually looks greener on top of someone else's septic tank." hahaha. My friend, Ms. Polly, gave me a great one too, " Joyce Meyer Ministries
"Even if you think the grass is greener on the other side, you’re going to have to mow that side too."
Another friend said,
" the grass is probably greener because it was planted over manure"

In a nutshell, love who & what God's given you and love it to the fullest because He gave it to you and not for what it does or how it is. Just love...
