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.

Moving and PMS should not be allowed to be put together! last year when we moved it was an absolute PMS nightmare!

This year when we moved I told my hubby that I was expecting to be PMS'ing while we would be unpacking. He groaned quite loudly! I chuckled and apologized in advance. I managed it better than last year but there were still some not so nice moments.

Your family is in my prayers during your move and I will especially be praying for some moments of refreshment for you.

I am praying for your family during this transition. I also pray for some much needed rest today. Enjoy time with your sis and mom.....they will hold you up during this season as God works out all the details.

I'm praying for your family transition, and for funny moments to make everyone laugh.

If we lived closer, I would bring you some ice cream. It helps with PMS and everybody needs ice cream for a party - even if it is a pity party. Did the "PMS, cry till there were no more tears, be mean to everyone I love" move a couple years ago.

Praying for God's blessing and an extra serving of laughter upon you.



Moving house is just horrible! I'm glad it's nearly over for you guys!

I'm keeping you all in my prayers during this crazy stressful time.

Having just moved house in the last week for the first time - I share your pain.

Good luck!
