I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
OK, I know Ian will gripe if I don’t clarify: We’ve been sleeping on normal mattresses on a Harvard frame, so it’s not as if we’d been making do with sleeping bags on the floor since we bought the house. However, this is exciting because it’s the first time in our entire 7 years of marriage we’ve had a real bedroom set like this. Yay! The quality is fabulous…but then, we previously had particleboard with wood veneer, so I guess anything’s better than that.
