Someone With A Lot Less Is A Lot More Happy Than You

Tim Milburn

I’m currently working on a message I’m delivering this Sunday at a church where my friend is the pastor (you rock Doug!). Since I’m putting a lot of time into getting it ready, I thought I’d share a nugget of it with you. The focus of my talk is on learning to be content. That’s a lifelong lesson.
