I think contentment is something we all struggle with. What can we change, what can be different? I read this yesterday and it's good advice.
"Enjoy the blessings of this day and the evils of it bear patiently, for this day is ours. We are dead to yesterday and not yet born to tomorrow. A contented mind is the best blessing a man can enjoy in this world. If in the present his happiness arises from the subduing of his desires, it will arise in the next from the gratification of them."
from a republished very old book, The Royal Path of Life, 1883

My son took this photo. Creative I think!

Outstanding photo. What a reminder for us all to continue to reach towards the cross in Thanksgiving for our salvation.
Powerful photo...I think it should be submitted.
