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.

Really, if you think about it--they are perfect!!!! They'll have so much company with all the Otter Pops you'll be eating!!!!!!!


Oh my goodness, I'm groaning at your screen door and animal friends--they're so stereotypical of AZ--but I'm here to tell you that not all of us desert dwellers are into Native American art and gravel front yards (ok, so the house I live in right now does have desert landscaping in the front, but not that bright pink stuff and we don't have any cacti). Anyway, it's fun to see photos of your new house--it's looking great. I'm amazed at how fast you get settled!! I guess it comes from all that moving, huh?

They are so cute! They could be named kiwi, sunburst or ginger, cherry or ruby, violet or plum. That way they'd feel right at home while your eating your Otter Pops!
