Simplicity is What We Make It

Six episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, that is how I spent a good part of my Sabboth day of rest.  What draws us to that show?

For me it has to do with a simpler lifestyle.  Family and town folk caring and looking out for each other.  A church bizaar or picnic being the focus.  Simply sitting on the porch and watching the sun set. 

Why is this so hard for us?  Why do we allow the world and society around us to push us into their mold of rush, rush, rush and always being active for ... well, active's sake?

We have a farm so time is of the essence for us with all the chores to get done each day.  Many lives of both two-legged and four-legged animals depend on us to care for them.  That said, it is up to ME to carve out that 'simpler lifestyle' in my day. 

How do you do it?  How do you make sure that you don't get caught up in the whirlwind of life?
