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.

saw a couple clocks like that at Goodwill this week on county line and broadway.


Can I come? I just flew to Arizona yesterday to visit a friend and it's supposed to be 115 today! I think I might melt!

I would love to come in the winter!


To escape the Texas heat I would be there in a heart beat!

That's almost a little freaky! I'm in the process of deciding what it going to go in our new guest room in our new house...and just the other day I was just thinking of my Nanny's old alarm clock with the bells on top...and how I wished I still had it! When we both find one, we'll have to swap guest room pics....that is just wild.

If you ever want to come back to the Deep there will be a guest room!

I heard it was like 115 degrees in Arizona this past week. Kinda makes our West Virginia 94 degree / 98% humidity sound mild. Sheesh. Glad I don't live in the desert...
