simple life






grainy, but sweet.  simple, yet elegant.  
My family is simple.  There are seven of us, and we live in a house with three bedrooms, one lovely little kitchen, dining room, and living room+ bathrooms.  Three sisters share a room, and the two boys are tucked into one very small room on a bunk together.  Simple, but so good. 





  Yet on another note, life isn't so simple sometimes.  Lately, I've found it hard to concentrate on getting school work done.  Devotions and prayer in the morning tend to be rushed and I quite simply forget to live in gratitude and not rushing and scrambling.  Today, True, my three-year old sister, came up to be and asked me to do ''horse-y ride'', (consists of her sitting on my knee, while I bob her up and down), I was about to say ''No, no, True.  Not now -- I'm doing school."  But I stopped myself.  I have my whole life to do school work, but do I have True as a three-year-old asking for a ''horse-y ride'' my whole life?

  It dawned on me today: simple broke through a horizon, slipped pass mountains in my life, spilled the light of simple living over me.   I've been living physically simply, but not mentally.  

do you live simply both physically and spiritually? 

p.s.
seriously, you all made my day. :)
