Listening:  Slow Fade by Casting Crowns

Doing:  Dishes, waiting for paint to dry, cracking open my leather Bible

Reading:  a Quick Sit between Chores:

“I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.  I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.  Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure…You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” Psalm 16



Today, I’m full of emotions, Lord.  Feeling a little inept.  Lord, thank for the reminder that “you get me”.  In the middle of all our craziness and quirks, you lead and guide and always provide.  Thank you for this word from Sunday that sank into me:  “His understanding, no one can fathom” (Isaiah 40:28).  You get me.

    I don’t know about your concert, but they showed the video to Slow Fade before Casting Crowns took the stage and then they did the song during the concert again. So powerful! How interesting that it was directly addressing the fathers and husbands, but boy — could I relate to the words of that song!! Being especially fond of the song “Oh Be Careful Little Eyes What You See” my kids loved it! I’ve sung them that song since they were babies.

    Thanks for the Bible passage, too!

    AMEN. I am so glad He gets me because a lot of people sho don’t! I am thankful that He gets you too when no one else is able to interpret or comprehend what you’re feeling, trying to say, going through. Such a comforting truth 🙂

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
