Thinking Award

April 2, 2008 at 10:31 am Leave a comment


Thank you Morsels from God.  I’m truly honored.  

I read many blogs for many different reasons.  But, “ode to thinking”.  

I’m always delighted when I run across a great thinker who can express thoughts in a positive way.

“The participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blog posts that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.”

Okay, these seem to be able to think and motivate.  I think the two need to go hand in hand or it’s not worth the pains of thinking. I linked to specific posts I liked rather than just to the blogs.  Hope that helps.

  1. This post was challenging
  2. This reminded me of my favorite kinds of days and how to have more of them
  3. This  and photos…helps me remember to pray
  4. This reminded me why I do what I do
  5. This is the best challenge I’ve seen in a while.  Do it!
  6. I add one to say, if you are a pastor and don’t blog.  You should.  You prepare your people to receive.  It’s like adding fertilizer and water around your sermons.  The  few personal struggles lend depth, remind folks to bathe you in prayer, and helps you connect with more people in a growing church.

One more blog award assignment to complete.  I’m anxious to profile all sorts of blogs.  Linking helps us all.  Do it!  I love them all or I wouldn’t read so many.   Keep blogging, and visit my blogrolls!

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
