In Honor of Love Week: Link Love Day

TORNADO Summaries on Blog:

Teresa posted some member tornado stories shared at church Sunday, including a story of those killed I had not heard which touched my heart.  Slideshow for that service here on her blog.  


Today, another sick day and a snow day for us.  So glad the children are not missing school.  Red woke with fever today.  Goldilocks was napping by 9AM, and he curled up on the floor on a pillow beneath her.  Could not find my camera.  Things seem strewn a bit around here.  I still have not unearthed my Upward Cheerleader manual from the storm, and we weren’t even hit.  After being in the dark so long, some things are just displaced.  I am going to have to start digging out.  I really need that manual!  Did find my camera and disk, thankfully. 


In honor of Valentines Week,  some link love: (blog stats go up as we link to one another, and Christ is glorified by higher google rankings for great posts.  Spread link love when you love posts!) 

Heartwarming Post of the Day:  entry by Holly touched my heart today in a special way. 

Local Photo of the Day award goes to CJ.

New Blog I’m Excited About:  A Changed Heart by “Kimberly”.  God is doing as big a work in her as with her husband testified about during Sunday service. 

Truth of the Day Award goes to The Well for this post.  If our kids could really “get” this early in life…life would be filled with so much more blessing and peace for themselves and everyone else.   We all need these reminders this season!

Poem of the Day goes to “You Never Know” by Chris.  Loved that.  Great challenge.

Visionary Award:  There is a local woman’s blog-study going on reading”Becoming a Woman of Excellence” by Cynthia Heald (one of my favorite studies OF ALL TIME).  I don’t know if it’s a public blog yet, so I won’t link.  I’m getting my book back out after reading their insights.  Rich! 

Post that made me smile and remember by Stacey

Praying:  several posts that call me to prayer for children, pregnancies, and families.  I won’t link to those.  But, I love how we can pray for and support one another and stay “up” on one another’s lives when responsibilities make it hard to get together. 

Inspirational Post of the Week to this post by Misty.  Loved it’s humor on death and security of heaven.  How true!

Blog Quote of the Month by Rosi.  How we need to remember this in coming days and weeks and months locally.

DAISY DOG: (this is for Beth, whose family previously owned my dog) 

Well, Daisy Dog is barking, and I can’t get her gate unfrozen to let her out off her section of the porch.   I had to drag her 80 pound self by her collar at 6AM both in and out usually off- limits doors.  At least I know she can be trained…WELL TRAINED, stubbornly trained.  But, yeah, we seem to love her anyway.

    If the blog on the Cynthia Heald book becomes open, I would love to join in.

    I’ve been meaning to pick it up since you suggested it months ago. 🙂

    Thanks for the link. I love to see the numbers jump up! LOL

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
