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 love this post. i think about stuff like this all the time. thanks for putting words to my thoughts (as you've done many times before...).


God is showing this to me over and over. I was in a serious car accident a year ago. God has put people and opportunities in my path throgh this journey. Prehaps the best thing has been how it strenghted my marriage.
P.S. I found your blog through Marla. I'm glad you homeschool. I'm strongly considering it for my eventual children. I work at a school and am often disturbed by what I see and hear.

Still lifting up prayers. Hopefully, she journals and can look back one day and see God's hand all over the plans - the little and the big - the easy and the hard.
