New “Game”

June 14, 2006 at 9:57 am 4 comments


1. Refreshment. Only two girls here. Long shower. Slow morning. No kid’s fussing or barging in the bathroom. Aaaah.

2. I love email. I love comment posts. THANKS! A lot of wisdom there. If you don’t read what others tell me? Well, better than what I say (and usually shorter!)

3. I love friends who blog (published and unpublished). THANK YOU! I love your lives.

4. I love godly women. Thanks for investing your life in mine. More than a hobby. You helop define my life. THANK YOU!

5. First day of soul care with God yesterday. I had taken a break from study for a while…I’d had several classes in a row and needed some down time. Time to get back on track. Junk floats to the top.

6. Time for summer goals. Want to memorize a passage of scripture significant to me…did that with a friend once and have cherished..fed my soul for years without a lot of immediate “thinking” on my part…good for summer!

Anybody game? Let me know. I have some fun blog ideas in mind to quiz ourselves. Either comment or email me. Isa. 41:17-20.

First goal: Read through, then think on the meaning of the first verse. Post comments if you wish. We’ll be moving fast, so hang on!

NIV is my memorizing version of choice. Use whatever you like.

Don’t want to stop computing to get out your Bible? No excuse! Here you go: (NIV) Tip: Copy the text, hit PRINT, select PRINT SELECTION to have a printout of just the text below that you want to memorize! It doesn’t get any user friendly than that! 🙂

Isa 41:17-20

17 “The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.

18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.
19 I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set pines in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together,
20 so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the LORD has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.

    I like that idea to read a verse and comment.

    I think that we thirst for something we once had, then faded away, or maybe that we never had: fulfillment in God. He is so abundant in his blessings and promises to fill us and promises to never let us die in our thirst.

    Great verse…

    Three couples gathered together last friday night to pray for marriages.. and we strayed to the changes that God had made to our church body… One of the things we shared about were trees that came out of no where replacing dead stumps.

    We read a few verses, but this one is especially encouraging as it ties Mike’s 2005 message of Thirst to the trees.

    great idea.

    i remember stumbling around looking for something, not knowing what, before I met Jesus. He truly quenches my thrist. I am in a period of refreshment, letting His healing waters flow over me and I am enjoying dwelling there. But I feel Him calling again, bringing people into my life that He wants me to share the living water with.
    He is so good.

    Thanks, also for your email and advice, very on target.

    The fountain flows in so that it can flow out…I guess otherwise we’d explode with all the fullness!

    Keep me posted.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
