Contented Living

by Lois Jamieson

“Nine requisites for contented living

Health enough to make work a pleasure.

Wealth enough to support your needs.

Strength to battle with difficulties and overcome them.

Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them.

Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished.

Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor.

Love enough to move you to be useful to others.

Faith enough to make real the things of God.

Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.”


Did you notice the first word of each of the nine requisites? 

Health, Wealth, Strength, Grace, Patience, Charity, Love, Faith, Hope.

Perhaps, if we just remember these words, we will find contentment.
