Ok so, I know its the middle of winter..and that is fueling a lot of my sunshine withdrawal...but I miss the 60 degree weather!!
When Tanner and I first got married, we would take Saturdays and use them to explore. We had enough money to use up gas and drive all day if we wanted.
Those were simpler times.
Times in which we were dependent on sunshine, good music, and a full tank of gas for our happiness....
Don't get me wrong, we still love those things, but its different now. We have to think about how much that gallon of gas is going to cost...
Financial responsibility they call it.
Well....Mr. Financial Responsibility, I have news for you. I'm taking the initiative to simplify life. To unburden myself from the power of financial struggles, debt, and neverending stress.
I'd like to look back on my life and see how much I was able to give of time and resources...
....not how much time and resources I spent trying to keep up with things that are not going to matter in the end...
I'm so thankful that God used the memory of a single afternoon to remind me of how important it is to remember that the life I lead is not for my own personal gain. It's for His glory, and if I don't stop piling on the commitments and burdens of this world, it will be so hard to really live.
I don't want to wake up one day and realize that I've wasted every breath on meaningless T-H-I-N-G-S.
A material object without life or consciousness; an inanimate object
From here on out, here's to leading a simple life.
"You have been told, O man, what is good, and what the Lord requires of you: Only to do the right, and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8)."
