Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! Since Gene Wilder's death, I find myself randomly singing songs from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The line that keeps going through my head the past few days is, "If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it." So, today's photo is a weed in my yard--isn't it beautiful? Being content, seeing beauty and finding joy where we are is all part of God's plan for our life. We are to seek and strive for contentment. We are called to be satisfied with what we have, to not always be wanting more. Does that mean God wants us to be "stuck in a rut" and complacent? No. But, it does mean He wants us to be happy where we are at in life, to be grateful for what we do have. He knows that having Jesus in our life should make us content, peaceful and joyful no matter our present circumstances. This week, find paradise where you are and rest in contentment.
