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.

Very pretty!!! I love crosses too! I have a friend who has them as a border around the top of her kitchen...very neat!

Gorgeous...and I'm trying not to be envious :-) No Hobby Lobby near me, sadly.

I love Hobby Lobby! They have the best deals!
I've been going to Hobby Lobby since it first began 30 years ago in Oklahoma City. A tiny little store... amazed that it's grown to the size it is now.
Remember, they are closed on Sunday's... and how cool that they play Christian music in the store.


What a great deal! I haven't been to Hobby Lobby in forever. Looks like I need to head over there sometime soon.


I LOVE catching Hobby Lobby's discounted garden section steals! I may have to go there today....

Hm, crosses look nice. While they would make fantastic decors during Easter, the ones you bought are charming enough to display for the rest of the year.
