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.

I'd go in a heart looks like a great home! Can I see more pictures??

Thanks for your prayers...they have been greatly felt. We're going to be OK, I know.
With love in Him,


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...memories! So many memories of that time. Just hearing you write about those places and hearing their names's so fun to slide into the past and pull from those years...random flashes of roads...delicious candies... British foods...theaters...GOOD tea hike field smells...pop music...80's clothes...MAKEUP!!! They are all special and precious pieces of our pasts--the start of our friendship and a time of "growing up" while still being safe in the protection of rural England. God knew what He was was doing when he planted us in such rich soil. There is no memory of England that doesn't bring you to light, and I am eternally grateful for dear sista!


My husband and I were just talking about England, London specifically, and when we will be able to make a trip back. Not soon enough! The photos are beautiful. Totally unrelated, but you have GREAT hair! Short, long, straight, curly. I have hair envy! Have a great weekend.


Hi! I was playing around with Google Images today and found this picture of Walton Park on the internet! My family was stationed at Menwith Hill from September 2001-2004!

We were living in 80 Walton Park at the time!!!! What a smile you put on my face today...seeing you standing there in front of "our house"! We have great memories of England!

Wish you would have knocked on the door...we would have let you come in!
