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.

I just had to laugh about your "windows" comment. I, too, am a peeker. Sometimes I even slow my pace when walking or driving at night, when I'm coming up to a "cute house". You can only tell so much from the outside during the day. The night-time views are great! =)

You make me laugh out loud!!! Yes, I think more of us than will admit love to peak inside other's homes. (I do!)

Thanks for your continued honesty. It's tough enough when we fail but even harder when the perception is that we're the only one. I'm like you - if I don't print out the verse and stick it everywhere (bathroom mirror, inside the pantry door, in the center console of my truck, etc.) I "forget" to work on it. I've fallen a little behind lately, too. So, your "kick in the pants" caught me squarely on the behind, also! LOL

Be blessed!

(And post your pictures soon!)

Okay I want to see your curtain embelishments! Please - I have been thinking about taking down blinds and doing something different. I need some inspiration!
I know what you mean about having to write my verse out - if I don't, it doesn't get in either!
Ok, I probably never would have mentioned it, but I do love driving (or running) by and seeing pretty houses lit up. Though for my own house - I want it closed up at night - it does creep me out to think of others looking in my house - unless of course they are harmless - but one never knows!

Oh how I love to peek inside windows. One of my favorite memories ever is going on a walk with my sister one Christmas Eve after dinner. I loved catching those glimpses of families enjoying one another.

Sharon

I'm with Kristy. I get creeped out at the thought of someone peeking into my house. We sleep with the windows open and fans in them in the summer and I'm always afraid some weirdo is gonna walk by while I'm in view from the window. My husband feels the same way.

Joanne,
LOVE the home pic so much..keep them coming..I love looking at people's houses especially if they are well lit.

Meg

Definitely love to peek inside peoples windows. I so wish there was a neighborhood general open house where everyone who was willing would let their neighbors take a look inside!

I have to ask. I'm currently down in the Springs but we are looking all around the Denver/Boulder area for when we move next year. If you don't mind saying, in what general area of Denver do you live? It sounds nice....trees, trails, etc. Or what areas would you recommend. I like older homes too......they seem to have more character.
