I accidentally deleted the “Sunday” post that the comments here go with…so that’s why they no longer match this post.  (Short version is:  tamberine Red called a “tangerine”, house decorating [creamy yellow and a bunch of other samples, though that’s not where I said I was going initially…still praying on that], and Spree, orange &  purple, my favs during church AM.  YES!  I love having kids in th pew…no calorie because they were eaten during the worship service, of course!)

    How interesting…I just bought a “creamy, tan-y, buttery-y, yellow-y thing” for my kitchen, too! After the gold in my living room, I couldn’t decide and Lindsey helped me find this color. It’s specific name is Martha Stewart’s Signature Color “Apple Basket.” But I’ve never seen an apple basket this color. I guess it’s just a “Martha thing.”

    Since my kitchen flows right into my gold living room, I hope it works as well as I see it happening in my mind’s eye. Interestingly enough, I have red in my office and powder room and a smoky blue in my bedroom (all of these rooms connect in some way). Sounds like we are kind of thinking along the same lines in our color palets.

    As it should be with Sisters in Christ, and all!! 🙂

    Love ya,

    I was giggling today because I literally went in Lowe’s and picked out our hall color (toasted almond/ sort of light tan) and a pale green called Plantation Moss for the bedroom in under 5 minutes.

    I hope that I like it when it goes on. I hope to get it all painted this week!

    Then on to the basement and trim. I’m painting the trim a plain white. Nothing fancy but I love the contrast!

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
