What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

Such a good idea Restoring Sabbath. I love going to church and then just spending time with my family. It's so important to have a day of worship, resting etc. Back when I was little shops were always closed on Sunday. Such a shame they have changed it.

BTW...Danielle absolutely loves the Amelia books. I picked up a few from the library today and she has already finished the first one. On to the second one tonight. Thanks for the great tip.

Hope your feeling better :o)


Love the quote "Nothing really changes until our minds do...", it's so true. Not too long ago, I decided to try to change my thoughts about some in-laws that we have had a tense past with. Our recent interactions really have FELT different even though there hasn't been a BIG change in our relationship. I'm hoping to be able to stay the course, and just maybe progress can be made.
