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.

Just curious... have you ever done peaches? I have a bunch that I'm fearing won't get eaten quick enough and I was considering using them for jam.


What a delicious-looking picture! I make Strawberry Freezer Jam every year - enough for all of us for all year - including my married daughters and their husbands. One of them would eat a whole cup of jam for breakfast if my daughter hadn't told him that we only have a limited quantity of this great stuff! I made about 48 pints this last, but we still have some left from last year. Once you've tasted homemade jam, you won't go back to the storebought stuff!


Looks great - though again with me and the seeds - I would have to learn how to make "strawberry JELLY" - not a fan of the jam. Textures...
