My Not So Big Life


There's a series of home and home improvement books by Sarah Susanka that I want to read so badly.

They start with The Not So Big House and go through Creating the Not So Big HouseNot So Big RemodelingOutside the Not So Big House....it's a bunch of books on how to make the most of a not so big house.

And I feel like God's tugging on me to explore that train of thought.

Money's not getting any easier to deal with right now.

And I'm not the only one with those problems.  I know that.

But I feel like God is trying to tell me to make the most of what I have.

I don't have a big house, but I do have so much.

I've recently read about a large family that, not by choice, simplified and condensed down into a much smaller home and are making the most of their situation.

And loving it.

And it's caused me to realize that I should be doing the same.

Simplify.

Use what I have, however I'm able to.

So that's the direction that my heart and thoughts are going in right now.

I just have to see where they're going to lead.
