The Simple Life

Lately the Lord has been working in my heart regarding the need to slow down the pace of my life. This song by Ricky Skaggs reflects some of my feelings in these days.

“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
(Luke 12:27)





The simple life is the life for me
A man and a wife and a family
And the Lord up above who knows I'm tryin'
To live a simple life in a difficult time.

I used to sit around fussin' at the phone all day
Windin' up alone and it'd make me say
Never again will I be that way
Never again will I be that way.

Well, I work six days and I rest for one
'Cause the ol' rat race ain't never been won
And I sit back and I watch 'em run
I kick on back and I watch 'em run.

The simple life is the life for me
A steak and a knife and a glass of tea
The Lord up above he knows I'm tryin'
To live a simple life in a difficult time...

Simple life in a difficult time.
