In Living on Less and Liking It More Maxine Hancock describes contentment as, “Similar to happiness, that greatly sought-after but always elusive goal of society. However, it is deeper and more fulfilling than happiness. It is a quiet plateau that can be reached internally even when there seems little external reason for it.
“I am not pretending that the learning process is always fun or easy. But the Spirit of God is a thorough and loving teacher and, of all the joys of life, it is contentment...for which I am most grateful.”
