Get Your “Wanter” Fixed

December 5, 2013

Read: Philippians 4:4-13

I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content. —Philippians 4:11
Bible in a Year:
Daniel 1-2; 1 John 4

When my wife was a young girl in Austin, Texas, Carlyle Marney was her family’s neighbor, pastor, and friend. One of his off-hand remarks about being content became one of her family’s enduring expressions: “Dr. Marney says, ‘We just need to get our wanter fixed.’”

It’s so easy to want more than we need and to become more focused on getting than on giving. Soon, our desires dictate our choices.

When the apostle Paul wrote to the followers of Jesus in the city of Philippi, he told them, “I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content . . . . I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need” (Phil. 4:11-12). Paul was saying, in effect, “I’ve had my ‘wanter’ fixed.” It’s important to note that Paul was not born with contentment. He learned it in the difficult circumstances of everyday life.

During this season of the year, when shopping and buying often take center stage in so many countries and cultures, why don’t we decide to focus on being satisfied in our present circumstances? It may sound difficult, but Paul, when talking about learning to be content said, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (v.13).

Help us, Lord, to learn contentment when life is
rough. Protect us from believing the lie that
having more will bring us happiness. May we be
content with what You have given.
Contentment begins with having fewer wants.

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...how were your commutes today?

Did you get your shot this week?

I’ve been called back to jury duty in the morning. And it’s raining right now, so “ice” is the watchword. I am not pleased!

The cars are encased in ice right now. I will have to go start my car, let it run, then scrape ice before I can go home.

Good commutes today, thanks! I got my shot this morning and made it by 7:00 a.m. to the Emissions Testing Station - a badge of servitude we're forced to endure in the People's Republic of Maryland - and had my van tested. It failed for some reason I am unable to fathom.

Meanwhile, I am passed on the road by vehicles belching dark smoke from their exhausts with no consequences.

I have been called for jury duty twice in recent years - never selected for a trial. Can't imagine why. :)

I can’t IMAGINE why you weren’t selected. LOL!

They finally stopped our emissions testing last year after we had multiple years without going over the limit (amid complaining that all they wanted was money!!).

Good luck getting the “failure” fixed.

That is as it should be. I have many fond memories of Thanksgiving dinners with family, going back to 1950, when I was little more than an infant.

One of my earliest memories of Thanksgiving Dinner was from Thanksgiving, 1952 - my father was back home from Korea and my Uncle Jack Dowd was out of hospital after having been WIA. He glared across the table at me and said that if I didn't eat my potatoes I'd be court-martialed. My great-grandmother intervened and I was spared.

Years later, my Uncle Jack became the most important influence in my life other than my Father.

I made it home...ugly, ugly, ugly. I HATE tailgaters!!!!

I didn’t want to go the speed limit. Several antsy guys in trucks tailgated, then finally zoomed around, a little squirrely, and I met them at the next signal. Hehehe.

Safely home, but I had to put up with a few pickup tailgaters. The “darted” around, a little slip n slide, and I still met them at the signal. I love it! d:o)

Now I have to drive in it in the morning, back to court.

Me too!! We get 4 Floating Holidays...use or lose by year’s end. I saved mine to use the 4 Friday’s in December. I might have jury duty this Friday. We are moving to the new building next Friday, and over the weekend. I am NOT losing my earned holidays. I will be taking a couple Thursdays off if I have to work Fridays. GRRRR!!

Good morning/afternoon/evening/night Troops, wherever you are.

Thank you for doing your part to help keep all of us free and safe.

Thanks, unique, for the pastries.

Coffee is always on........

How about a donut?

Cookies?

Veggies?

Snacks?
