Crazy Love

This post does not have anything to do with homemaking, but it might help you understand why I embrace the whole idea of simplicity.  In a previous post, I wrote about how simplifying, for me, is the “intentional promotion of the things I value most.”   This post is about the THING I value most.

 My sisters and I are reading a book together called Crazy Love by Francis Chan.  We are on chapter 2 and I’m loving it.  Our purpose in reading it is to learn about this “Crazy Love” that God has for us, and to figure out why in the world would the same God who created the universe love US?!   What?Seriously?  I know, it seems quite crazy, really.
Below, there is an amazing video called “Just Stop And Think” with a message that I believe is life changing.  It was for me.  It articulates what I believe with all my heart is true, and because of it I will never be the same.  Please take a few minutes to watch it to the end.  Sounds crazy, but it could be the most important video you ever watch.

**do you think I used the word “crazy” enough times in this post?  Trust me, I’m really not…ok maybe a litte..sometimes.

    I follow a blog by Angie Smith, whose husband is in the singing group, Selah. She has started a book club and they are reading CRAZY LOVE, too. Each week, they’ve posted a video and comments for each chapter. You might find their comments and videos to be an additional resource to you.
