    Simply Silent

    It’s not uncommon for me to be so busy talking, that I miss what someone is saying. Usually it’s Peter or the children, trying to get my attention, but I have my own words, ideas, agendas. Unfortunately, sometimes I’m like this with God as well. I have my own words, ideas or agendas as I [...]

    The Simplicity of Distance

    (I’m linking up with Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama’s Five Minute Friday.) Distance. I stare at the word in front of me and think of the distance we’ll travel tomorrow for our Spring Break getaway. The last time we visited Ocean Isle Beach, we followed Hurricane Earl. He left in such a huff that the tide [...]

    Everything In Its Place and Other Myths

    A place for everything, and everything in its place is a myth at our house. For the moment.

We would have found out had it not been for Brittany‘s example. She inspired me to get [...]

    The Simplify Journey: Heart Start

    This week as I began my walk on the Simplify Journey, I discovered tracks that led straight to/through my heart. Perhaps that’s the only place to start on the journey to simplify. Change, after all, lasting change, is not likely to occur without some sort of impact to the heart. Initially I wasn’t so concerned [...]

    The Simplify Journey

    I invited friends to join me on the Simplify Journey, but I have to tell you, I was more than a bit nervous. Suddenly I was in high school again, or worse, in middle school. I wasn’t the popular kid. I invited all the cool kids to come to a party. I decorated the house, [...]
