Content in all Circumstances

Love this quote! (Read the book, it will change your life.)

"Christian Contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God's wise and fatherly disposal in every condition."
~Jeremiah Burroughs, Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment


Now if I could actually learn Christian contentment...

  1. You are already a paragon of Christian contentment, readying yourself to be an incredible helpmeet to some amazingly fortunate young man (after he gets past me). More will come with continuing sanctification, but don't kid yourself, you're amazing.

    Love,
    Dad

  2. Thank you, Dad! You are so very kind (and biased!). You are one of the best living examples of Christian contentment I know; I've spent years watching you find your joy in the Lord rather than in your circumstances. I love you!

    Your little girl forever (Lissie)
