wanting



i find myself wanting....


a new car

  a pretty yard with flowers and paths 


cool toys for my kids
new shoes
hardwood floors
a back deck
and the list goes on
stuff
stuff
stuff

but i read

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
   “Never will I leave you;
   never will I forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:5
and i pray please forgive me

and yet the world sings....billboards, tv, radio, friends, family...buy this, YOU need this, how have you lived without this...

so I cling to Luke's words

Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Luke 12:15
