Philippians 4:11 (NIV)

11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.

Being surrounded by the noise of daily life can at times remove the ability to just be content.  There are often such pressing needs to have, obtain and move  that we can forget about the simple pleasure of being content.

This past weekend I found delight and contentment in being surrounded by precious and rarefied laughter of family visiting for the first time.   There was joy in seeing beloved faces lit with pure joy and fellowship,  and enjoyed some of the most incredible wings I have ever eaten (thanks Honey!)

Sitting and reflecting upon the weekend I am moved by the words in Philippians 4.  There have been days and seemingly at times months of lack, yet by God’s grace there was peace and contentment.

Thank you Lord that I can rejoice no matter what the situation, no matter what comes my way for you truly are worthy of all my praise and the reason for my contentment.

Making His praise glorious!

On the lip of the weir

“[Thanksgiving] I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge—” 1 Corinthians 1:4-5 NIV

What a truly wonderful day! Though the sun is not glowing and the cloud awash with gray, the day is shining brilliantly with light and promise. Can you see it? Can you see anything? The pile of clothes needing to be washed or folded. The dishes showing evidence of a meal prepared or eaten? The ache of muscles because of exercise or clearing those now falling leave? Breaths taken by rote, the flexing and tapping of fingers and across keyboard or stubbing of toe on bed frame.  Each and every one are reasons to rejoice. Thank you Father for opening my eyes to see the possibilities in this day. For providing the provisions to sustain this vessel. Thank you for a voice to sing your praise. With a truly grateful heart I greet this day!

Making His praise glorious!
