Sweet Scripture Sunday....

Its time to SIMPLIFY!

The older I get the more I like things simple.
I like  my clothes simple..........
I like my decor simple.........
I like my food simple.......

Yes, as the days pass by I like things simple.

Simplicity is making the journey
of this life with just baggage enough. 
~Author Unknown

Just as we eliminate the physical clutter in our lives
we also need to eliminate the spiritual clutter.

Society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things,
and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things. 

The more I study the Word of God the more I understand..............

It is not about WHAT we have
but WHO we have.

I love browsing Blog World..........

To see how Bloggers are taking used and discarded items
and turning them into wonderful decorating treasures.
They make decorating look so simple.

It not about the New,
But about what we do with the Old.
The Old becomes New........

Old Homes purchased and redone.........
Old furniture revamped......
Old Clothes with new Purpose......

Old  doors recreated into something useful........

Old canning jar lids as a wreath......Wow!
I am so going to do this one.

Yes, I do believe the good Lord intended for us to repurpose.
After all, that is what he does with our lives every day....

No he does not discard us......
He "simply" renews us!

Simple enough?

I think so.......

Yet I call this to mind
and therefore I have hope:
Because of the Lord's great love
we are not consumed,
for his compassions never
They are new every morning;
great is His faithfulness.

Lamentations 3: 21-23

Simple Blessings to all!

  9. Hi Patty,
    Thanks for sharing such beautiful thoughts. YOu are so right and we bloggers are so blessed to be able to share with like minds. Repurposing and reusing just feels right.


  10. I love the things you write. My husband use to tell me that I was sort of like Jesus when he took the unwanted, the broken, the despaired and made them lovely and wanted. When I take old discarded items and make them new and beautiful again.
    I love your blog. Thank you for stopping by mine!

  11. yes, ALL is grace! I have thought that many a time when repurposing...we are new creations in

  12. Too true! I go through phases and am currently in the de-clutering stage. I agree that we are intended to re-use, re-purpose, re-cycle. We are supposed to be good stewards of our beautiful world. And what better way than to make beautiful things out of discarded ones. Love the lid wreath!
    Patricia :o)

  13. It is always so good when you visit my blog. You always leave sunshine behind! Really good post and I love the primitive decorations.

    I will be posting the recipe you were asking about, so hope to see ya back soon!

  14. Hi! Stopping by to say I am trying to get use to Linky since google reader is leaving! It is more complicated I think! I don't want to lose my friends so stopping over to say hi and don't forget to switch soon! Have a terrific weekend. Anne

  15. One of my favorite scriptures! I saw the canning ring wreath on pinterest and liked it as well.

  16. Such a great post Patty!! I am with you ..simple things are the best! I have some work to do to simplify my life even more- but it is my goal this year. I have always been frugal..used things until unusable...give away what we have outgrown and repurpose what we have. I love the doors you shared that have been used again in the garden and as a hall tree. I have wanted to build a greenhouse out of old windows and hope to be able to do that someday. Love what you shared...it's not what we have...but WHO we have.!!! Hope you are enjoying a blessed week!
