throat_80531.jpgI have a cold.  I’ve been fighting it since Sunday.  My tonsils hurt.  And I just took more meds.  My day now involves six pills every day.  I think I’m going downhill fast, but am getting beautifully wonderful and tender little smiles from My Man over the unfairness of it all…  I could live on those…

    I’ve never tried Avia…right now I’m a New Balance gal. It takes me forever to get a new pair of tennis shoes…I’m too picky and I don’t want to spend very much on them.

    It sounds like you had a very successful trip to WalMart!!!

    Another thing we have in common! AVIA!!!! My absolute favorite pair used to be the ones that hugged my ankles — can’t find those any more. AVIA is the only athletic shoe that my toes don’t cramp wearing.

    Also — so sorry about your cold. I had one last week and then two weeks before that! REST, REST, REST — maybe this weekend?!

    Sending healing prayer your way.thank you LORD that you see your servant Maggie who shares your love freely in her blog and her life. Thank you that you heal us in so many ways. We ask you to help Maggie’s tonsils and ask that her family help her in her sickness. Thank you that no one else gets the same thing. We thank you for all these things in Jesus name! AMEN.

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
