Contentment Leads To Generosity

Posted on Monday, November 26, 2012 in Emotional, Financial, How To, Relational, Social, Spiritual, TreeHouse, Values

As I was approaching fifty years old I sought the wisdom of my elders. I sought out men and women older than I was to learn lessons on life that they had been learning.

Monday I began a series entitled A Treasure Chest Of Wisdom, including:

1. Don’t Hold Grudges
2. Take Care Of Your Health.
3. Compassion Makes Sense and Giving Is Better Than Taking
4. Greed Gains Momentum

5. Gratitude Leads To Contentment

Contentment Leads To Generosity

Christmas Recap

Posted on Monday, January 2, 2012 in Financial, How To, Relational, Values

This Christmas week was very different. For the first time since we got married we did not travel.  We had a great time the 23rd — our Christmas — but the 24th & 25th felt a little empty and lonely.

Don’t get me wrong, we had a peaceful and blessed Christmas week, it was just different than in the past.

Perilous Presents

If our family and friends depended on me knowing their interests and needs they would never get anything.  Whether I’m being frugal or I’m ignorant, I simply don’t know what people like.

Clean Water

I love this picture.  It takes me by surprise how much I love capturing this picture. 

 

This little squirrel lives in our backyard.  We call this squirrel “Junior White Paws.”

Junior White Paws lives with White Paws in a nest in the tree outside our sliding glass door.

Junior White Paws is an active little squirrels who likes corn, peanuts and clean water.

This little squirrel gets to enjoy cleaner water than millions of people on this planet.  Clean, filtered water — free from contaminants — this squirrel is among the wealthy and privileged class of squirrels and people alike.
