So sorry I have been absent from this blog, but as I am living my very busy life right now, I am thinking about what to write and where to share my thoughts. Did you know that I have 4 blogs? And another one waiting in the wings…..hmmm, what am I thinking? Well, apparently alot as I am trying to place different trains of thought into different segments. Therein lies the confusion…where do I write what I am thinking, do I write at all, and does anyone really care?
As I ponder what topics drive me to write a post, the topics that I am passionate about (at the moment) are church life, foster/adoption, education philosphies and my family. So, as I ponder these topics you may see me write about them here, although probably not foster/adoption or about my family (at least not in the detail that I write on our family blog).
There is another subject, though, that has been making it’s way into my thoughts quite a bit lately, and that is the subject of simplicity. Whether it is regarding nutrition and health or caring for my family, I am really contemplating the idea of simplicity as it pertains to all areas of my life. I am recognizing that there is way too much focus on what we don’t have in our lives than embracing what is within our reach right now. There are so many “things” that can take our focus off of what is really important and to me what is really important is my relationship with Christ and my relationship with my family and friends. Anything else does not even compare—why should I allow it in my life?
So, my friends, I want to share a link with you that talks about simplicity, and what some may define it as. I liked this thought:
“My goal is to live as simple as possible and enjoy the journey….”
That really sums up my point…To enjoy the journey I am on, I must look at life through the lens of simplicity. To see God in all things and to enjoy what is placed before me at each moment.
