Contentment is something that I have struggled with from time to time. I don't know if my heart has changed, my attitude or what, but I am finding that I am much more content.
My nieces spent the night one night last week and Chuck surprised them by putting a tent up in Megan's room.
Saying they were super excited is an understatement!
I loves how when they fell asleep they were all facing the same way. :)
Today the weather is what I consider perfect. Mid 70's with beautiful sunshine. The windows are open, laundry was on the line and it was cool enough to turn on the oven without over heating the kitchen.
Peanut butter cookies are one of the favorites around here. I dipped a few of them in chocolate and they are yummy!
Some time has been spent in the garden.
We borrowed my parent's mini tiller and Chuck ran it through the garden.
I got my first pea harvest!
This is the first time I have ever grown peas and it is exciting to see those cute little pods! I remember sitting on my grandparents front porch shelling peas. As I shelled my tonight and heard the ping as the peas it the bowl it took me back there. I have such great memories of time spent at Mom and Pops.
On Saturday Chuck had to work and Megan and I went out and about for a little bit with my parents. One of the places they stopped was Gordon Foods. I found these adorable scoops for my canisters.
Aren't they cute!
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21
As I become a more content person I realize that my family, home and the life God has given me are my true treasures.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
