Friday's Favs....Home Sweet Home

There's always something needing repaired or updated.

There's always something I'd like to change,
a project I'd like to do,
something new I'd like to buy.

But, sometimes, what I really need is just new eyes to see what I already have.

A simple heart of gratitude...

a spirit of contentment...

that's what really satisfies.

Discontent robs me of the beauty of now.

Contentment helps me to see the beauty of what I already have.

Contentment turns a house into a home.

I'm thankful for my home sweet home.

It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!

  11. Your home is filled with such beauty. And I LOVE what you say, matter what others see when they look at our home, or how satisfied with the state of things we are that day...our contentment is choosing gratitude for what is ALREADY there. For the reminders of provision, love and grace around corners, on tables, in cupboards, on faces, in glimmers of light. So grateful for the Spirit that reminds us and even puts words to our gratitude.
