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.

Complaining people stop getting gifts...cut straight through...ouch...and thanks:) Time to adjust the perspective!


Great timing for this post! I woke a little before 4am this morning. Like you, my first inclination was to think I hadn't got enough sleep. Will my body suffer from lack of sleep. Even though, I didn't feel instantly awake when I woke up this morning, I got up, put some coffee on, and was able to get a blog post done for today that needed to be done. I was able to read the Bible and something in particular stood out to me that goes along with something I've been pondering lately about our spiritual walk as Christians. I talked to Lord.

Like you, this is a very busy season for me. Lots of things to do. But it is a good season.

I am thankful for that extra little time this morning. And I wouldn't be surprised if I find myself waking up early again tomorrow. :)
