"Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content." ... 1 Timothy 6:6-8
Wow. Tom and I just finished watching the most interesting (dare I say fascinating?) documentary at Netflix; Burt's Buzz, a film about the quirky, eccentric co-founder of Burt's Bees products.
Except that Burt doesn't seem quirky and eccentric to me. Each word he spoke made perfect sense, especially since he's a classic introvert, albeit an outdoorsy one. I totally get him. Totally.
And truthfully? This was yet another film/life on a screen which illustrates why I don't want to write a book. At least, not the type attached with an agent/publicist who could legally whisk me away from this life I've chosen to write about. You know, so he/she could sell more copies.
Uh, no. I desire nothing that would change 'what God hath wrought' and what He's wrought is a happy homemaker who's in love with Him and the simple life He led her to find at one Hobbit Cottage.
May I never be dragged away from here unwillingly as Burt sometimes is from the simple life he prefers.
“Writing is something you do alone. Its a profession for introverts who want to tell you a story but don't want to make eye contact while doing it."

“It's not that introverts aren't good team players. We just don't need to be in the same room as the rest of the team at all times. We would much prefer to have part of the project carved out for us to squirrel away with it in our offices, consulting as necessary but working independently.”

Weather Report: We've still had just 3 or 4 inches of snow here north of Buffalo. But now the problem for the South Towners is that our temps are rising, it's raining, and flooding is on everyone's minds. Your prayers would be appreciated by all, I'm sure!
Don't have time to watch the documentary about Burt? Here's an article about it.
