It is not found in an expensive piece of crystal, a brand new set of silverware or a cold display of department store china.
It is found in the simple pantry ingredients which artfully transform into delicious dainties, in the little humble cottage garden decked with a plethora of petals and in the brittle brown box of grandmother’s old dishes.
It is found in being content with what you have and using every lovely resource to its greatest advantage.
"Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.”
- 1 Timothy 6:6-8
