Being Content

"Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:...be content with such things as you have." (Phillipians 4:11; 13:5b NKJV) Several years ago mom was watching a show on the picture box called The Amazing Race. On this particular show they showed some humans, in Africa, called the "bush" people. Mom has never forgotten these people and often tells me about them. These people have almost nothing but each other, including food and clothing, and are so skinny you can see their bones. But, despite this, mom said they were some of the most happy and joyful people she has ever seen. No matter what our circumstances, and or how little or much we have, we need to find our "happy place" inside of us, and find something to be happy about within ALL our circumstances, each and every day. We need to be like the "bush" people. It is God's way! Love, Beau
