Learning to Be Content

Many, many times things don't go our way.  We hope to go to this school or we hope we get this job or... the list continues.

Last night we had a major storm go through.  Dad was in the middle of baling hay.  The field he was working in is his largest hay field.  He was hardly halfway through.  None of us wanted it to rain, let alone storm.

  Philippians 4:11   Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 

On Monday it stormed most of the morning.  We had to have recreation indoors for VBS.  Do you know how hard it is to play tag quietly indoors?

  1 Timothy 6:6   But godliness with contentment is great gain.  

We could have turned against our Father for not listening to our pleads for no rain, but we didn't.  We know that in everything that He does, it is for His plans.  Not our own.   

James 5:7   Be patient therefore, brethren...

In the end, everything worked out.

Dad thinks he can still salvage the hay.  This is only the first cutting, we'll have at least one more round after this.

Recreation went really good.  We learned that most outside games can be played indoors and the most important thing  was that the kids had fun.

  Romans 8:28   And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God...
