Contentment – Thomas Merton

September 15, 2022
Stella is content to be up to mischief and being showered with love from her mommy and daddy 💖😻

Our sweet Stella teaches us a lot every day. She was starving and close to death when she found us. To this day we aren’t exactly sure who rescued whom. She teaches us daily to be thankful for the day the Lord has made 😻

When you accept what you have, you see all you have received is more than enough and you are overwhelmed. I desire other things because I fear to be content with what I have—I fear it is inglorious. In the last few days I have seen what matters is to be humble enough to admit I am content with just this. Leave the rest to God. (A Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk’s True Life: The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3: 1952-1960) September 7, 1958
