Monday Mayhem

Today is back to Monday…in every sense of the word, “Monday”.

I planned for sun and cool, it’s rainy, and wet (so much for a dress and pumps today–trying to look professional to teach a high school student and all.) 

I had to run up a poison ivy infected bank to get cars cleared to get my kids into the building–people were blocking the drive.  Whew. 

I’m in a mood today to “swat flies”.  Enough is enough. 

My student was sick and didn’t come to school.  I didn’t find that out until I’d been at the school for 35 minutes.     

On to the market…in the rain.  Found an umbrella!!!

———–* enough of that nonsense (edit…sorry for the poor writing earlier!)

This weekend,  I was telling people about Christ in some remote parts of the world.  It struck me that the last thing I had on my blog mentioned my husband throwing me on the bed.  I wasn’t going anywhere obscene with it…just a playful moment, but in certain nations of the world…well,…what do you do when your blog doesn’t match up with the customs and practices of the world? 

Should my blog grow more spiritual and serious…or should it stay “real”?  Praying for God to guide me.

Any-hoo.  Ya’ll pray for those in Wyoming, Florida, Nigeria, Malang, Seychelles, RIZAL, the Philipines, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, New Zealand, and Ohio…

All people I emailed with this weekend who have just been saved, want to be discipled, need study materials, have recommitted their lives to Christ, or have spiritual needs. Volunteering for Campus Crusade for Christ’s email hotline has been one of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever committed to do.  Wow.  Real people, seeking– through the internet, waiting to be counseled.  You can commit to do as little as one contact a day in 24 hours.  (I usually end up going up to the max 5-6, which they can increase it if you like.  I just need the balance of a clear cut-off or I’d never get any other work done!)    

Would you consider becoming an email volunteer also?  If so, tell them “Maggie” from sent you.  I’d sure like some people to share the prayer burden for these people.  If you volunteer, we may set up a blog just to share some prayer needs and success stories. 

All for today…back to swatting flies!

PS:  Celebration Point to Note:  I just added a “missions” category for this post!!!  I was so convicted about my lack of evangelism built into my life all last year.  Now, I have a category with something in it!!!  Praise God!  He heard my prayer!  Thank you, Lord for the opportunity!

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
