it would be a lie
so for at least the rest of the month i vow to post at least every other day, bath nights if you will.
and i will start this TODAY
with this little tidbit about living a more simple life:
a year and a half ago we got rid of our cable, cable tv is not wrong, it is not wrong to have cable tv, it was wrong FOR US to be spending our time not to mention our money on something that was not only NOT growing us in our faith but was in fact showing us daily what we should be afraid of and worried about by the worlds standards. it was telling us what we should want (iphones,theres nothing wrong with iphone, i just dont need one, but the world tells me i should want one, a better car, why?) and it was hi-jacking our control of the content that came into our home and what was viewed by our 3 year old son. that time the decision to get rid of the cable was a monetary reason, we were cutting ALL unnecessary costs. we have gained so much more than that 25 dollars per month back, there is no vegging out for hours while we could be playing games with our son (now 4) theres no discontent that theres nothing on worth watching and theres no panic when i think there was something inappropriate viewed by my son that i will have to explain to him later. we gained peace and quiet, we gained more time for books and puzzles, we gained time to chat with each other all things that people cite as reasons they want their life to be more simple.
what we have found is that if you want a simpler life, you have to cut out the things that are making your life complicated.
