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.

Lisa notes...

My verses this week had the same thought as yours:
"But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting..."

And I'm thankful, too. Hope your ankle makes a quick recovery today!

My post is here:


I did that 'foot asleep' thing IN CHURCH one time!! We had a long service and THEN a member meeting. I sat with my legs crossed until we were dismissed. I popped right up, anxious to be out of the chair and made it as far as the aisle where I promptly fell down. OHHHHHHHH that was embarrassing!


Oh, so sorry to hear about your ankle! I twisted mine a week ago, cleaning cobwebs out of the garage. Hobbling is no fun, and requires much patience. It's a good reminder to pray for patience and thank God for the strength he has given me.
Happy hobbling, my blogging friend

Yes! Karate Kid!

I had to use the ankle brace for the first couple weeks of working out. That and lots of ibuprofen :)


I've always been afraid of twisting my ankle when my foot is asleep! Yeee-owww!

And I totally read the title wrong, and was waiting to see what kind of "hobbying" you've been doing lately. I couldn't figure out why you were talking about your ankle. Me = nerd.

I hope your ankle feels better soon! I hope your pride didn't hurt as much as your ankle. I've had that type of injury, as well.
