one of my goals. be content.

i scrapped a page about one of my goals in life.
to be content.
to be content to me means knowing a very personal inner peace.
its a secure “ahhhhh” thing that is deep within me;
deep within me because i know the One who gives real contentment.

my journaling reads:
physically, emotionally and spiritually
be content
in the places that God
has chosen to place me.
be content in the present

be-content

i’m not claiming to have mastered how to be content 365/24/7.
last time i checked i am still human and imperfect.
but thankfully i am in a better place than i use to be.
imperfections and all, i DO know what true contentment is.
i didn’t use to know what that was.
it’s all in the One who gives it.
and i know Him.

the specifics about the design of the layout is pretty fun.
i did it for this week’s challenge over at random chaos.
the challenge this week is to use yellow, orange and office supplies.
my house and chimney is made from an index card.
i used staples.
and the little white rounds thingys are paper reinforcements.

have a great week! 🙂 Carrie
