Simple Things

Learn to like what does not cost much.

Learn to like reading, conversation, music.

Learn to like plain food, plain service, plain cooking.

Learn to like people, even those who may be different from you.

Learn to shelter your family with love, comfort, and peace.

Learn to keep your wants simple. Refuse to be owned and anchored by things and opinions of others.

Learn to like the sunrise and the sunset, the beating of rain on the roof and windows, the gentle fall of snow in winter.

Learn to hold heaven near and dear.

Learn to love God, for He surely loves you.

    Oh, that is sooo beautiful and uplifting. I’m glad you shared this. This is my third spiritial blessing of blogland today. 1st someone sent Saija a little story in her comments..that was wonderful. Then I visited Connie’s Thoughts from the Heart and she gave her book meme. And now your blog. Thank you for the blessing…
