I heard this expression a lot growing up. And you know what? It's still great advice. There is so much in my life that I cannot change. So many women I know like to try to change things in their life, their husbands, their children, their in-laws, their surroundings. Some even try to change their Pastor or his wife. Many times we get the idea that we cannot be happy or contented unless things change. That is a big lie.
What I know is that I can be happy now. Not just "OK", but happy. And I can thrive. I can blossom even in the face of adversity. My happiness does not depend on my house, thank the Lord. My hapiness does not come from anyone here on earth. I am thankful for that because most people here on earth will let you down. But not God. He wants me to bloom wherever I am planted, and He gives me the ability to do so.
