Learning To Be Content

The cold wind whistles through the trees 

Leaves gone 

Branches broken and bent


I long for summer breezes light

Warm sun

Under a canvas tent


Hot oppressive sidewalk heat

Tempers flare

Money spent


I wish for a log mountain cabin

Simple life

Fires started by flint


The icy snow blocks my door

Isolated Alone

I need to vent


I dream of a party and friends

Joy and laughter

Stories and time spent


It’s crowded and disingenuous here 

Loud and fake

Please get the hint


I need the ranch and horses

Outside time

That’s what I meant


Feeding, Fixing, Folding gets old

The cows are up

Now my car has a dent


Europe is the life

Vacation forever, every day

Meeting a new lady and the gent


Homesick for familiar

I travel miles barely remembering

where I went


To my own house

To the ones I love

Learning to be content

Philippians 4:11-13ESV 

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Hebrews 13:5ESV 

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 

1 Timothy 6:6-8ESV 

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 

Matthew 6:31-33ESV 

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 

Psalm 16:8-11ESV

I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. 

1 Timothy 6:6ESV 

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment,
