Nothing new is happening around here......
How often I catch myself saying this.
But wait.........I'm gonna think about this for a few minutes!! *#! hmmmm*#!*#!*#! hmmmm *#!*#!*#! hmmmm *#!*#!*#!
What is it that I'm thinking of when I say "Nothing New is happening around here?" Is it necessary to wake up each day to something new happening? The word contentment comes to my mind here!
Learning to be content and thankful for where I am in my life!!
After all..... All new things become Old. For some people, new things become OLD.... fast!
New things never stay new.....which makes it necessary to enjoy the old. For example: I got new tires on my car! This made me happy just knowing that the new tires, keep me safe. Now that a month has passed....I never think of those tires.
On June 16th....we celebrated our 43rd anniversary.....beginning our 44th year of marriage is a new excitement...... later on, I'll be looking forward to making plans for our 44th year celebration, when I should be concentrating on all of the memories being made in our year 43.
Have you ever shopped for a new vehicle? Wow....so much excitement. Have you ever said those famous words? "No drinking or eating in our new car" OR "I'm gonna keep this car clean at all times." After a few months of holding to your word....you pull in a drive thru of a fast food joint, and order the #1 complete with a drink and ketchup for your fries!
The new has worn off on your new car.......and it's now ok to do exactly what it was that you said you were not going to do.
Ut Oh......the New is now old!
The older I get......the more I realize that things do not have to be NEW! As a matter of fact.....I'm finding that the things of old are more appealing to me than ever before.
Our home is decorated with OLD things.....some items are really OLD. Old peddle cars, old lace linens, old refurbished furniture, an old antique window, and so on and so on! I love this look! The look of years past.
Contentment......yes, this is my word for today! Being content with my life and the things that surround me. Concentrating on the moments....the memories of what the NEW day holds.
I'm feeling good......I'm happy......and I'm looking forward to what God has in store for me today!!
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.......HIS mercies never come to and end......they are NEW every morning....new every morning.....Great is HIS Faithfulness."
Blessings to each of you today....
