So my family is on a journey.
And it's been a while a coming!
But it looks something like this: We feel God continually calling us to live according to His economy and not the economy of the world. He is calling us to try to live simpler and live with less and be satisfied with the abundance of His love
...and it's hard sometimes!
Lately, we are feeling Him call us to radically pursue decreasing debt. We've been working on that awhile, but it's easy to slack up or make those easy swipe purchases. But we have renewed vigor with a plan that will pay off everything but our mortgage in two years. Exciting!
But that means we look for alternatives to the "traditional" approaches to such things as...Valentine's Day!
So this weekend we have
1. Made our own valentines (and Valentine's boxes as you'll see above:)
2. Made homemade Almond Joy candy bars for a special V-Day treat!
3. Had a "drive-in" movie party in our living room with a John Hughes/Cameron Crowe 80's Romance Movie Marathon!
And it was all a blast. So tell us....
A.How are you living simpler?
B.What fun things did you do to celebrate "Be Mine" Day?
C. What is God challenging you to do that is radical?
Peace and love!
