Philippians 4:11 ” For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. “

One of my favorite times of day is early in the morning watching the sun come up… with a cat in my lap and a hot cup of coffee in my hands.  It’s a chance before the world invades my mind to chat quietly with the Lord.  For me it’s a time of total contentment…a chance to bask in the delight of knowing my Lord and Savior…and an opportunity to take pleasure in praying for others.  I’ve discovered over the years that being content doesn’t depend on only favorable conditions around me…or that being satisfied with life can only be measured by huge accomplishments and miracles of God.  No, true contentment is enjoying simple pleasures…those little blessings that only the Lord and I know about.
