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.

Love "Anne of Green Gables"! I have it on my Kindle and re-read it often. I love her attitude and curiosity!


I love Anne as well. :0)

I feel like I don't have a big imagination. I think it is something to be you've given me some ideas on how to nurture it. Thanks!


Breathtaking photos. It is really beautiful!


Hi Joanne! I love this post because it's exactly how my brain works. I make up the most ridiculous stories in my head, sparked by a simple "I wonder..."

I always wonder where people in the airport are going. Vacation? Work? Happy reason? Sad? Or when someone is waiting in their car in a parking lot... why? Are they waiting for someone? Are they afraid to go in? Are they listening to a good song on the radio? People out walking - are they exercising? Do they know where they're walking or are they just meandering? Did she just need a break from her four kids who seem to constantly need her???????

Oops. Got carried away. But I do this all. the. time. I can't escape it or make myself stop. It just happens and sometimes I can't concentrate on other things. Do I need help? :)

I love the idea of keeping a journal for it all. What a great way to foster creativity!
