THE SIMPLE LIFE

“Sure sounds simple enough, but all of these are EXTREMELY difficult for me and most of us.”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in living the simple life today because Jesus made it simple to just love for today”)

You want more. No way are you less is more.

You would steal the point of the church steeple.

“If I accumulate more, more adore.”

The simple life is, more or less, people.

Where people begin or end, I don’t know.

Where I begin or end, I have no clue.

The simple life is when I “middle grow,”

where I meet them and me at tried and true.

“Godliness with contentment is great gain.”

1 Timothy Six:6 – We brought nothing

into this world, we leave the same. The pain

must go, too, for the simple life is King

Jesus, who loved and suffered gracefully.

His Simple Life was costly. His Love? Free.

    It hit home for me, too, Dag. The simple life is anything but simple. Hopefully, the sonnet had some things to ponder on and apply, though? 😉
