Some excerpts from today's Purpose Driven Connection daily e-devotional by Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church, CA and author of The Purpose Driven Life. (I so agree with him, but also am feeling the hefty cost that goes with making the choice to swim upstream in a world where most people are living in the rat race!!)
"Your choices control your calendar and, as a result, your lifestyle. Your choices are far more powerful than your circumstances. You may not like how complicated your life has become yet, with very few exceptions, no one is forcing you to keep your life complicated."
"You have the power to simplify your life."
"Ultimately, it will be the donation of your life that will count far more than the duration."
