Return of the HDQ

B/C I haven't finished with the generation post - though I'm close, I will post an HDQ question.

When have you been the happiest and when have you been the most content? Those two most often aren't at the same time.

I have three times I have been the happiest. The summer and fall of 1993, my wedding day and when Emily was born and every moment spent with her ever since.

I am the most content now. Yes, a couple of things in my life are not necessarily going well. I'm still having problems in my marriage and I honestly don't know how that will go. I'm praying that it will work out but I'm not sure what will happen. Even so, I feel the most at peace inside now instead of the basket case of nerves I've been over the past 2 ½ years. I'm sticking close to God and listening to what He wants of my life. I still have a long way to go, but I feel the most content right now that I'm finally, really knowing that everything is in God's hands. There isn't anything that He hasn't allowed to come in to my life, good or bad, and they all work together for His purposes. It's no longer about me, it's about Him. God doesn't promise us that things will be roses and happiness when we follow Him, but he does promise inner peace when we rely on Him.
