A Simple Life


As our countries economic situation worsens, God has laid it on my heart that is it time to get back to the basics of life. Call it Mayberry...call it being a simpleton...I choose to believe it is how God designed us to be. To fill our homes with kind and loving words, tenderness, patience, a gracious nurturing spirit, comfort, encouragement, guidance, cleanliness and order, joyful music, fresh nourishing food and homemade treats. We can say Grace at the table for God's provision. We can take our family to Church on Sundays, to instill in their hearts truth, hope and joy. These are all the things that will make our family feel safe, loved and cherished. It's really all about back-to-basics homemaking. Simple and sweet.
The home should be a warm sanctuary from the storms of life for each member of the family.
Can I get a AMEN Sista?

Amen sista! You think of the generation that came out of the Great Depression. Some of the most sincere, hard working and God Fearing people. Maybe we need to be reminded in order to recognize what provision truly looks like. Who we love. Why we are here. xoxo
