Photo Hunters - Four


Many things came to mind when I considered today's prompt - then my world shifted a little...



You could say that my financial house of cards fell...






So now I am trying to get my ducks in a row - and in line with the Almighty duck.






I'm going to spend a little time figuring out what I really want to do next...



And I will be reading this verse each day and reminding myself that I know it is Truth and that I have experienced this very Truth before.

Philippians 4:12-14 (The Message)

Content Whatever the Circumstances

Actually, I don't have a sense of needing anything personally. I've learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I'm just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I've found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. I don't mean that your help didn't mean a lot to me—it did. It was a beautiful thing that you came alongside me in my troubles.

I love your pics and your thinking..Philipeans is one of my fave verses also. What strikes me is the order "godliness with contentment"..vs 'contentment with godliness"...so we know what comes first. kwim?

Looks like that deck had more than four fours in it. I guess it was just time to "clear the deck."

It sure feels like we are all living in a house of cards. Good choice!
