Multitude Monday

Contentment.

Why do I find it so hard to find contentment lately? Is it because everything seems to be going wrong? Is it because its winter and everything is cold and dreary? Is it because I feel so tired?

Truthfully I have always felt content until lately. When we found out Taylor had cerebral palsy people thought it was weird that I never cried. The doctor looked at me and said "do you realize she may never talk or walk". I remember thinking that I will cross that bridge when I get there.

I was only 18. Maybe that has something to do with it. I just turned 31.

I have never been one to compare my life with others. I have always been happy. I have always lived life to the fullest and can remember saying a million times " I can sleep when I am dead". There was way too much to do. In a good way. Memories to make, life to live!

Lately though I feel this little pesky...thing. It eats at me at night. I feel discontent. Not always but I can feel it creep in at times. I don't like it. At all.

I am memorizing Hebrews 13:5.
Let your conversation be with out covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

For now, as I trend lightly through this unknown territory, I will remember those things that I have been blessed beyond belief with!

(Sorry, no pictures this week.)

~Hubby brought me a rose again!
~Little fingers that hold my hand
~Hugs, hugs and more hugs
~A hubby that spent two hours making a snow track for the kids to sled on
~Little ones that wait to turn lights out at night until they get my love
~New therapists for Taylor
~A little sister that calls for advice
~Changes that make me giddy
~Changes that make me need to trust the Lord
