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.

Ooohh great question today! I can't stand when my mother, and others, say WAR-sh for Wash. There is not an R in wash! *cringe*

Li-berry and Valentimes Day! Seriously?? Oh-and the other day a friend called Imelda Marcos, Amanda Marcos!! Yikes!!!


I actually had a friend write "walla!" in an email to me. Took me a bit to realize she meant "voila!". :0)

I don't really like when people say heighth--with a th on the end like depth. I don't think there is an h on the end of height, right??

Great advent idea.


Yellow pronounced, yellar. Got into a k-garden fight w/ another 6 yr old over this many years ago. I ended up with a streak of yellow paint across my face ! Then his mother drove him to my house to say sorry after school. But I'd rather of heard him say "yellow" ;)


Mine's not a pronunciation one, but when people misspell words online. The very worst is someone who always writes "dido" for "ditto." Drives me crazy!
