Staying Content… through the ups and downs

A calmer faith – that’s the quiet place within us where we don’t get whiplash every time life tosses us a curve.  When we don’t revolt when His plan and ours conflict. Where we relax (verses stew, sweat, and swear) in the midst of an answerless season.  Where we accept (an expect) deserts in our spiritual journey as surely as we do joy.

–          Patsy Clairmont

A major part of finding contentment involves ACCEPTANCE!! Knowing that with life comes both ups and downs, and it IS possible to learn to be ok during each season you are going through. 

First you must really want contentment, and find the true joy that comes with living a life that is content.  Then the work is for you to become creative in daily seeking out how to be more content with every situation you face.
