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.

Once again, God connects minds. I was thinking last night, "Why don't I remember these fall and Halloween decorations last year?" That's when it dawned on me that in late September and October of last year was when I was at my deepest point in grief for my mom. And I suddenly remembered that our best friends asked my DH and the boy to come to their house for dinner and trick-or-treating. I stayed on the couch in a dark house and cried. And they went and had a blast. Which was what each of us needed apart from each other. When we talked today, I thanked her for meeting my family's need in a season of life when I couldn't. Friends really are a gift from God!

Glad your friend Christy was here for a visit, but I was bummed for you
that she wasn't able to have a true Autumnal Colorado experience as you had hoped. September was cruel with it's hot weather. Now we beckon October come in all it's crisp, blustery glory and crimson brillance! I hope Christy enjoyed seeing the brillant Aspen color while wearing a tank top!
Autumn greetings, dear friend. Welcome back to Colorado!!!
