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 totally know what you are talking about and I love how you pulled this together. I had to copy it and print it and I'll talk it over with God during our time together in the morning.

Oh yes...'deed I do, Friend! I think of the new rendition of Chris Tomlin's "Amazing Grace," where he sings, "My chains are gone, I've been set free...My God, My Savior has ransomed me..." I could put the word "scales" instead of chains...either way it would be true.

See you manana, mi amiga!
Love you much,


And I also have to many times have you read this book/The Chronicles of Narnia in its entirety???


oh, yes-this is being revealed to me everywhere I turn lately. My pride keeps creeping back in if I don't confess it daily and stay aware of it!


I LOVE this post. I don't particularly like feeling like an onion...layer after layer of stuff that Jesus keeps tenderly peeling back. But it's worth it. And I LOVE the phrase "perfectly delicious". Beautiful.


That was a beautiful post!!! I knew that meme was going to come in handy :)
