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'm a thinking that your grandfather was a thinking that if he couldn't have a rootbeer float or a glass of buttermilk, what was the use. Goodness sakes, couldn't the doctor have said "sure, in a little bit" . . . not "no, not a good idea". Well, I'm being a little facetious here . . . but not really. And I am really really sorry about your loss. My condolences . . .
