Settling in to a Simpler life at Home

Buena Vista I

I have been working on making life simpler for my family. I want less pressure. I want less stress. The only way I can do this is if I have very few obligations.

I need time for unhurried family life.

I need to have all the time in the world to hear stories and ideas from my growing children.

I need to be found in the same old places by my children - the kitchen or parlour. I want them to have that security of knowing where to find me.

I need to be able to cook and bake and serve my family without fear of deadlines.

I want peace and happiness that comes from a surrendered Christian witness.

The greatest thing I can do, is to simply be a wife and mother here at home.

Wonderful! I hope my children look back and say I was there when they needed me.

Love this post! In the past I was always cumbered about with much service at church and home. I had to cut some things that I thought were good out my life because I realized they were taking me from my family and responsibilities at home. I love my simpler life now and can see the blessings of having it this way now :) Keep it up!!! You will not regret it!

Could not have said it better. Absolutely perfect and agree 100%.

I can't believe I had not seen your blog before. Found you through my bloggy friend and sister in Christ, Michelle, from Medieval Christian Mama. I look forward to more visits.
