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.

Ahh, we'll get back there. We were doing so well when our entire family shared a 5-day stomach virus (I'll spare you the details), followed by the flu, followed by an out-of-state-Mom who is not doing well. And now, it looks like I never tried to organize anything, or even clean. But because of what we had put into practice (thanks Lisa and Joanne) I am going take a deep breath, say some prayers, and just start to work. What I have learned is that having a temper tantrum and pouting and picking a fight with my husband (I'm not the only one am I?) doesn't get the job done, it just makes it more unpleasant.
Thanks for letting me e-vent.

I searched your site just now (7:25pm, Wed.)looking for maybe a word from God about a choice I need to make . . .then I spot your words, " a good choice does not always equal an easy choice." I was invited to see "Two Lovers" with Gyweneth Paltrow (who I like so much) but the movie is R. I've debated all day about it. But, I know God has said to make the better choice. Thanks Joanne and thanks God. Missi :)
