    Without In With Society Within Out Of Myself

    Society (whether secular or religious) in general reminds me of children running around the house jumping from one bed to the next pretending to be Super human. I admit there is a charm to see great achievements, tall orders being met, leaps of faith that inspire whole...

    A Simple Life

    I love the logo for this group.  It may not be what's intended but it does remind me of various depictions I've seen of St Francis of Assisi.  He is without doubt my favorite saint.  He loved animals, I love animals ... we're a good match.  Then...

    The Simple Things Are Just Sooo Precious.

    I'd rather take a loving, meaningful card than take a high tech gadget that really has no sentimental value. The simple things are just so precious and should be valued for life. I just enjoy the simple things more than anything that take me more than just a few seconds to work...

    It was wisely said "Live simply that other may simply live". We have made our lives too complicated and the more we simplify our lives the more it will benefit others.

    Simplicity

    It's a little rare to find people where I live who appreciate the smaller, more simpler things in life. It's kind of sad. You always feel the need for things that are big and unnecessary, more and more. People make things more complicated just because they can. I miss the days...
