Simplicity

At the moment I’m living with simplicity on my mind. How to live simply. How to be. Not through any great self help plan, merely by being me, who God has made and by taking life slowly and learning not to do life how others think I maybe should. But how God intends me to live. It’s a work in progress.

I feel that God has placed this on my mind, so I’m going to do as he says!

The scripture that keeps coming to mind is Matthew 5:27 “Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.” To me, at the moment it means live simply, with no deceit. Not so much talking going on, but living and loving and being.

I went back on instagram (I previously deleted my old account) and one thing I was determined on was that I wanted the feed to be filled with good things, beautiful things, so I have avoided following news channels and even some Christian sites with articles, because I just find all the information to be too much and get overloaded. It makes me really stressed. I’m not hiding, I just wanted one social media place that would be a good place to look. A beautiful place filled with outside places, gardens, families, just some niceness to be honest.

Here are a few photos of our last few days seeking some simplicity. (most of it away from screens it has to be said). I’ve been really thinking about our days and how we spend time, so tv and screen time has definitely decreased and so far is proving to be a good thing.

slightly strange photo (above) but I took it so I remembered how they supported their raspberries…
