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.

Have a wonderful time! I'm praying that the cool, crisp air will help you sleep well this weekend.


I never asked and I never looked at our account got the check, right? Just checking!

Have fun on your Brownie camping trip! I love reading about your Girl Scout adventures. I'm not brave enough for overnight trips yet - maybe in a couple years. My Brownies are only in first grade this year!

We do name our cars. My new Acadia is named Katie the Acadia. I'm not sure why it just is.


You're too cute with the car naming thing. We call ours as follows :the van, Dada's truck, the Tracer (because it's a Mercury Tracer) and the Mystique (because it's a Mercury Mystique) and the Jeep. Our old Ford Taurus, we called, are you ready for this? the Taurus.

Looking at that, I realize we have a lot of vehicles. But I guess that's what farm families do :-). Now I feel like I should 'splain/justify, but ah, well.

Hope you have a great trip and come back with many happy memories.

We call our Blue expedition, the behemouth... because of its large size!


The big blue bus! (Yes, it's a rather large suburban!)


We have Calvin Chrysler, (preceded by Dilbert Dodge), and RHonda Odyssey. The first car in my memory is Isabelle Vega. ;)

Blessings on your camping trip!


Hope you had a fabulous weekend!!!

My car in high school was The Beast. (red 1978 Ford Fairmont station wagon) I don't know that I've named a vehicle since.
