How Time Flies

Okay, so it’s Tuesday. 

You recall that I did my full blog overhaul last week to learn a few things with WordPress. This week, I’ve done two full blog templates, and one header.  It’s great to have work when you want an odd job or two.

Yup, my eyes are crossing a wee bit. 

I had a good time and hope everyone likes their work. 

I’ll try to put some up somewhere for those who want to see it once I catch my breath. 

Today: I also burned the trash and cleaned on the garage some. I still need to do some laundry.  10:35–yikes.  Two kids’ soccer practice.  I also bought the kids “Kinetic” for the Playstation EyeToy.  It’s awesome!  It’s exercise with gaming mixed in.  My daughter whipped us to pieces!  She is SO graceful and fluid!  You do martial arts moves and hand-eye coordination so much you don’t realize you are exercising, but I was in a dead sweat afterward.  All four of us were playing and taking turns.  It apparently has Yoga on it…which I plan to try for my back tomorrow!  Not bad for $20.00, plus the eye toy.  However, I think I bought the last one.  Nike apparently helped develop it.  Very cool.  I like the computer people…they are very helpful fitness trainers without feeling like you are watching someone else work out with you, which is weird to me.

Tomorrow:  catch up on our finance class stuff for church, finish memorizing my verse, and {gasp} work on filling in the all-important “monthy budget form”.  If we don’t do our homework, we can’t talk in that area of discussion…so you know that motivates to me to get my work DONE!  Nothing more boring than having to sit their with your trap shut when everyone else is laughing and talking!

    I love you. Thank you for such a beautiful, beautiful blog design. It just brightened my day so much. Praise God for your gift! I looked at the code while pasting it and had a headache; don’t know how you do it but praise God that you do! Praying that you’re able to get other things done and asking that He would restore everything that you poured out to blessed others [me] today.

    That was meant to be *bless* minus the ‘ed.’ Sorry, just a tiny bit tired over here!!!!

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
