She said she'd be satisfied. My customer Thursday evening qualified for any item in the catalog up to a $40 retail for free. The pendant she wanted was $24. She chose the $24 pendant as her free item and said she'd be satisfied.
I looked up because the word satisfied caught me by surprise. It's not a word you hear people say often. That they will be satisfied with what they have. No. Most people these days want more.
Her blog said she was filled. That God had blessed her with a heart of contentment. Her words stayed with me and had me thinking.
Friday, as Shane and I drove home from a field trip we took the boys on we were talking. I shared with him that if there was one character quality I'd like to see the Lord develop in me this next year it would be a heart of contentment. I shared with him how the night before my customer said she'd be satisfied and how the word really had me thinking. I shared with him about Jenny's post of contentment. Satisfied and Content. Those were the two words I shared with my husband that I'd love to be developed in my heart.
Friday evening we want on a date and saw the movie Courageous. My sister had told me there is a book for women and one for men that accompany the movie and that I had to get them, so I did. After the movie, as we were sitting on the porch at Outback waiting for our table, I pulled our gifts out of my purse. Shane opened his copy and I opened mine. Can you guess what Chapter One of my book was?
