The Title of this Blog is to be Content – but most of the time we know that we are not. I wonder why we feel discontented some days and not others? Sometimes it is the Weather that has an effect on us, especially if it is wet and gloomy or raining and we feel we cannot get out and do things that we would like to do outside. However if we start to think how good it is to have the rain it puts things into a better perspective for the day. We can then start to get on with things indoors, or even in the workplace that we are in.
If we are indoors with a young baby it is sometimes very difficult to enjoy things if we are feeling discontented with life. So we need to overcome, take time to rest and play. Begin afresh each day to be gentle and nice to the baby, the little life that depends on us for all it’s needs.
Although – if by any chance we are a Carer for someone, the same applies because that person depends on us and if we are discontent in our attitude towards them it will show up in the way that we talk or take care of them. So it is good to try to put on a happy face when caring for them. It will make all the difference to their day when they see that you do really care for them. Just to be content with them for a while is a great comfort to that person who is really in great need of our help.

Flowers add a special touch where ever they are put for people to look at and admire. You can always make up a special vase for your kitchen or lounge room to add a bit of something special for yourself to look at for a few days or for the coming week. Friends will always admire your creation or display and maybe you will encourage someone to do like wise. We have Geraldton Wax flowers in the above plus some Lantana and a few odd leaves complete the arrangement. The are put into Wet Oasis in a container to hold the shape of the display.
Hope you like my display – maybe take a photo of the one that you make as a memento.
Time to have a Recipe now: What about Tomatoes then?
This is the time of our Growing Season and Tomatoes are growing well – so what to do with them? Well here is one nice way to use them which is very tasty and not difficult to make.

James: Chapter 3 verse 18: says Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
Here is a Poem for today: as we have Roses in the above Basket of Flowers this one seems nice.
Dear God I’m thinking of that flower. Ever fragrant in every hour. The wonders of this Universe makes one want to write a verse. The delicate softness of the petals against the hardness of different metals.
To touch a Rose is a wonderful thing. Man made metals – no real pleasure bring. But to touch and smell a dew fresh Rose is a pleasure few of us really knows.
To touch and feel your wonderful world, especially the Petals so curiously curled. What a priceless treasure the Rose must be, I pray they’ll be there in eternity!

I Hope you have a lovely day experimenting with your flowers and also the Tomatoes.
