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.

Today was my annual Christmas Candy making marathon. I didn't quite get it all done today, so tomorrow I'll finish up. I also had a couple girlfriends over and showed them how to make a Magic Quilt picture. While I supervised their crafting, I made my candy. It was a very busy fulfilling day.


I totally understand what you mean about no time to be sick without the whole family being out of the scheme of things. When I am just tired and not my chipper self, my teenage sons become forgetful and slothful. When I am up and about, near them or not, they are productive and attentive. Ugh. Nevertheless, we get it done, even if we have to play catch up often.
