"Simplicity is never a matter of circumstances; simplicity is always a matter of focus...To realize that the real hidden cost of everything you buy is how much life it cost you to get it. That life is not an emergency but a gift to slow down and savor. That it glorifies God to spend your extraordinary life paying attention enough to the moments you enjoy God. That the moments all matter. The daily decisions add up to the sum of your life. And a pail with a pinhole loses as much as the pail pushed right over. A whole life can be lost in minutes wasted, small moments missed."

Ann Voskamp in the forward to "Notes from a Blue Bike: The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World" by Tsh Oxenreider. Via JenLovesKev Blog.

I couldn't get that quote out of my mind. So I whipped this up and plan to print it out. As a daily reminder to live intentionally. Not foolishly. Jen's recent post is awesome and totally spoke to me.

Have you guys been doing any summer reading? Let's discuss...

Happy Wednesday, friends!!
