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.

Hope you have a wonderful trip. I'm jealous you're going somewhere warm. Especially since we're supposed to get more snow tomorrow night. *sigh*

Hey, we're having dinner guests tomorrow night and I'm making your minestrone! It was so good! I can't wait to have it again.


Hello Joanne! I shall make it a point to meet you in person one day! I'm not sure when that day will be. However, there will be such a day! =D


Have a great, relaxing WARM time! I'm so jealous. We have a layer of ice on everything here. The Man sat on the highway, not moving an inch, for four hours last night. He finally got home just in time to watch AI.

Looking forward to pictures and some chat time when you get back!

Love u.


We are equally blessed to have known you through your blog. I am sure you will have a great time in Phoenix...I am almost ready to take a vacation..may be to Disney California..Dont know when that will happen....

Our prayers are with you....may you have a relaxing and fun time.

And ya..Pictures are on their way ..I know .:))


Thanks for speaking at our MOPS group. It was fun and elightening! I really wanted to hear your talk in December, and was so sad it was a blizzardy day and it got cancelled! Yeah for rescheduling! find it ironic that I found both yours and Angie's blog the evening before your talk on Tuesday. God bless, and have a great trip.

Ditto...we are blessed to know you!

I hope that you have a wonderfully, relaxing trip! I am blessed by your blog and the opportunity to "know" and learn from you. Thank you for being who you are.

There is big news at the Pep house -- posting later tonight when the supper dishes are done and the laundry folded. I will catch up with you after you get back from Phoenix and I get back from Florida. Enjoy some warmth -- I will.

Thank you for making the trek to Boulder-you had some wise words. Have a great time in Phoenix and come visit my blog some time.
