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

Gratitude Leads To Contentment

Posted on Saturday, November 24, 2012 in Emotional, Financial, Intellectual, Relational, Social, Spiritual, 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.

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

Instead of focusing on what we don’t have, it’s important to be grateful for the amazing gifts we already have.

Loving family
Faithful friends
Good health

Brandon and Susie Kline got married last week. They brought together family, friends, faith, fun and laughs. 

You and I react emotionally to a photo like this even if you don’t know the couple.

Our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and musings about marriage come from somewhere.  We are all affected by nature and nurture — by genetics and environment — and by culture, both corrupt and commendable.

Marriage.  It’s just a word, but we react to it. 

For many of us, the feelings about the word run deep.  They echo into the past and resound with feelings buried deeper than we realize.
