Why are we are never satisfied?

Why are we are never satisfied?

Never Right

We always seem to want what others have and to undervalue what we have.Tanning

I remember as a teenager noticing that many white skinned people craved a dark sun tan while those with naturally dark skins were spending money on skin lightening treatments.

Ironing hairPeople with straight hair have it curled while those with naturally curly hair spend ages trying to iron it straight.

People in the city want to live out in the country while many in the country crave the convenience and comfort of city life. I could go on and on but I am sure that you get the point.

It is exactly the same as we think about our vacations. Right now most people in Europe and parts of the US would love to escape from the coldDog in snow with boots and snow into a place with glorious sunshine.

But at the same time many in the Southern hemisphere are longing for cooler weather and would be delighted to spend time frolicking in the snow.

It reminds me of the book of Ecclesiastes in the bible. Summed up in those dismal words in chapter 1 verse 2: “Meaningless! Meaningless!”  says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless!  Everything is meaningless”

Oh what a sad but accurate view of life.

In Ecclesiastes we find the solution in the final chapter where we are reminded that ultimately we will only find real meaning in life when we put God first!

However on a much lower level we can also use our differences to make this life more enjoyable. Here is an area where I have found Christian House Sitters a blessing.

If you are living in a cold place why not enjoy a rent-free vacation somewhere warm and at the same time you could (if you so choose) let someone from a warmer part of the world enjoy a rent-free vacation in your home. That will bless them, bless you and give you the security of knowing that you home and pets are being cared for.
Dog melting

Naturally the same applies the other way around. If you want to enjoy the snow and escape the blazing heat you can do that.

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life why not have a rent-free vacation in the country and if you crave a taste of city life then that can also be arranged.

No Christian House Sitters can’t provide the meaning of life. Only God can do that but we can help you relax, travel the world, enjoy different countries and cultures and all rent-free. We can also help you save money by having someone look after your home and pets while you are away free of charge.

Everyone benefits.

About housesitters

ABOUT Christian House Sitters Christian House Sitters is a Worldwide ministry that started in order to provide holidays for Christians and sitters for owners who needed a reliable Christian to look after their home, pets and garden. House owners do not pay anything to have their property listed. House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this some enjoy numerous holidays each year. All fees from membership go to sponsor food for children at the Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya. This only supplies about a quarter of what is needed to feed the children so we urgently need sponsors. All funds go via our Registered Charity TLC Children’s Trust Charity Number 1156786 website http://www.tlc-childrenstrust.org N.B. Joining Christian House Sitters does NOT commit you to sponsoring a child or giving any support beyond your membership fee to these children. Although naturally if you want to support that would be greatly appreciated. We have some regular sponsors and other people who give an occasional gift. All are greatly appreciated. ABOUT RAY & MARILYN We are Marilyn & Ray White. A fun loving Christian couple who have been in Christian work for over 30 years. Marilyn was born in England but moved to Zimbabwe as a baby. At the age of 16 she moved to South Africa. Ray was born in South Africa and grew up on a farm. We met in Johannesburg and got married in 1966. Ray worked in business for many years then he worked for YfC in South Africa then went on to Bible College and Pastored a church. In 1982 we moved from South Africa to England. In addition to his theological training Ray trained in Psychology and since moving to the UK he has lectured in Psychology, counselled for the NHS and opened a Christian Counselling Centre. Marilyn is also a trained counsellor and manager. In addition to the counselling we trained Christian counsellors both in our local area and by invitation in other areas of the UK. In total over 700 people completed the training courses. Many are serving the Lord by working in or through their local churches. We also ran a secular Stress Management business. We are now semi-retired and focus our time and attention on Christian House Sitters and Ray also serves as a member of our Church Leadership Team. Ray also has an active preaching ministry and runs Christian seminars on subjects such as stress management for church groups. He has written two books. A Christian book that is a very practical workbook on Christian commitment as applied to real life. The book looks at how we can surrender ourselves more fully to God. This is looked at under the headings of Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual commitment. The book is called Let’s Get Serious. He has also written a secular book on Stress Management called Stress Overcoming this Potential Killer. (Ray was previously Chair of the International Stress Management Association UK). News Update This book has now been released as an e-book as well A few years ago we did a 2 month House Sit in France. Whilst there we felt the Lord leading us to set up a Christian House Sitting service. Since then we have done a number of other house sits. We believe this site will benefit many Christians around the world.
