IF ONLY.........................................




"IF ONLYS" ARE LONELY.............

~~Morgan Jennings~~

How many times have we said to ourselves, "I'll be happy when......'' 

WHEN I HAVE MORE MONEY..........




WHEN CAN I REMODEL AND HAVE THE EXACT ROOM I WANT.......



WHEN CAN I HAVE A SPOT OF MY OWN..........



WHEN CAN I BE AS GOOD AN ARTIST AS SHE or HE IS..........



WHEN WILL MY BLOG BE AS PRETTY AS HER BLOG, OR HAVE AS MANY FOLLOWERS......

Often, the circumstances of our lives don't live up to our expectations or our desires.
Each time we lament on what isn't......we close the door to a better outlook.

We need not lament what we think we need.....we have what we need.

MY LIFE IS UNFOLDING EXACTLY AS IT SHOULD.

Let's all of us enjoy the perfect life we have been given today.

Love,

Jo

  12. Oh, you're such a wise and lovely woman!

    But I'll take the "Spot of my own" any day!!
    Makes me want to go buy a shed..and I still don't have anywhere to put one :(

    So I guess I'll be happy when I'm not living in a dorm anymore....

    Love that you're in your perfect place JO :)

  14. Hi Jo. I saw your post earlier today on my cell phone and it's been with me all day. I hardly ever text or key on it so I knew I had to come by again when I got home and tell you thank you for your post. This theme has been heavy on my heart all week. Isn't it funny how it seems when God has a message for us, it's everywhere we look. A few days ago I heard a song saying something like what if's are gone so there's no point in wasting time thinking about them. I've been terrible about this and am spending a lot of time in prayer on it. Thank you for being Gods messenger to me today.

    Hugs...Tracy :)

    P.S. I hope you get a chance to come by and enter my giveaway that ends tonight.
