Sunday I took my two grandchildren to the fair. And their mother.
We did the cliffs notes version of the fair. We skimmed through it, hitting just the high points. Lunch at the fair. For the kids. We parked at Arby’s. Walked in. Corn dogs. Check. Petting zoo. Check. Lemonade. Check. Fried garlic mashed potatoes on a stick for my daughter. And Tucker. Chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick for me. And Ava. Snowcone. Motorcycle ride. Facepaint. Walked out.
That was enough. They were so good. They were happy with what they got. Content. They never fussed or fought.
Isn’t that how we all should be?
It’s how God created us to be. Content. With what we have. Regardless of our circumstances. Content with what we get. Not what we want.
Let’s all be content.
Let’s try our best at all we do. Let’s not just do “fair.” Let’s live life to its fullest. And along the way, let’s have some fun. That’s what grandchildren are for! And the state fair! But let’s learn to be content with the smaller things in life as well as the big ones.
A corn dog. A snowcone. And a little facepaint all go a long way to bringing a smile to the face of a child. Let’s all make every Sunday a Fun day!
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and we can take nothing out of it. 1Timothy 6:6-7
