One of Paul's writings which we cling to in our current life situation - it is warm, we are well fed, have our faith, friends and internet - what more could one need? Love the cat picture - cats sleep better than any 4 legged critter!

Love the gingerbread leaves. Is that your own picture?

Kim said...

True words, and the very picture of contentment. I will try to keep this in my heart these difficult days.

Nancy M. said...

I try to be! Sometimes, I do need reminding!

Patty H. said...

Oh, I envy this kitty, laying in that nice sunny spot, soaking up the rays. Yes, I need to learn to be more content.

Your resting cat is a perfect picture for this verse. There are few animals who can be content with themselves and the world as the average cat is....
