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 completely understand your struggle! I always have sooo much to do and yet my daughter is wanting that one on one time!

Glad that you stayed home though, sounds like your gut was right!

That is such a blessing to get that confirming word from your Dad that you made the right decision. So often we never get that (in this life) and we spend hours or days questioning our decisions.


Yay, Dad! Aren't dads, awesome? Mine e-mailed me yesterday to tell me they would be accepting no $$ from us for the Sea World and Universal tickets...they were picking up the tab for them. Wacky parents! I love them!
I, for one, am glad you stayed home and I didn't have to worry about you on the roads...I'm a huge worrier. Something I'm trying not to pass down to my children. Only the youngest seems to have picked up the W gene.
Love ya.


I sooooooo needed your F reminder today....well, really this whole week is being transformed into a giant lesson in flexibility! Uggh...a tough deal learning life in the back seat when I keep wanting to jump up front and jerk that steering wheel back from the Almighty! What is up with that?!?!? It is certainly no coincidence that of all weeks, flexibility fell in the midst of plans turned upsidedown all over the place! Thanks for keeping my perspective eternal...the best place for my focus! Love ya!
