Contentment, Thankfulness, Happily Ever After


Contentment...
It's definitely an out of style commodity these days.
You cannot find it in the stores on Black Friday.
It's not available online on Cyber Monday.

It is only available in one place—from one person.
Within yourself—from God.
It's available here and now.
It begins with being thankful.

Live today as though now is your happily ever after.
It is.

Happy Thanksgiving
from Harvest Lane Cottage,

Laura
Thankful to be alive
for my third Thanksgiving
since CHRIST conquered cancer in my body





P.S. Thank you for your patience as I continue to recover from my post-mastectomy revision surgery. I will reply to as many comments as I can, but I find that I am falling behind. Be assured, I read all comments and appreciate your prayers and comments. Please forgive me if I do not reply.

  1. Rejoicing with you on your victory over cancer! A couple weeks ago, I posted about being happy and content...despite NOT getting things I desperately wanted (a third baby, and a move to another location). The Lord changed ME, not my circumstances, and brought me to a place of contentment. How I praise Him.

    Love,
    Patti @ This Beautiful Life

    1. You know, I've found in my fifty four years that it's when I finally accept things as they are and become content, God does something to change circumstances. He is good and kind and knows what we need. Blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving,Laura Lane
