A common theme in my life is 'over complicated'.  I tend to find the most complicated and longest way to complete a task.  Whether it is writing a song or putting something together or writing this blog, I can find the hardest way to accomplish a task.  One thing I am trying to learn is how to keep things simple.  Michelle tells me all the time to stop over thinking, just sit down and do it, let it happen, don't get so wrapped up in trying to make it perfect.  Simplify.  I think I am going to try to adopt that as my theme for this year.  I have never been one to make New Years Resolutions, and I don't consider this to be one, but maybe with the start of a new year I can commit to simplifying.  I think this is a good philosophy in worship as well.  Sometimes I think we get too wrapped up in trying to make sure we are playing the coolest songs or have the hottest newest things going on that we forget what we are doing, worshiping our Savior and Creator.  Instead of trying to make it perfect, trendy or catchy we need to just simply worship.  Let it happen naturally, don't over think it, just tell Him what is in our heart, start there and see where it takes us.
    Simplify.  I'm going to give it shot.  Will you join me?
