Thinking About It?

I hope that you will check into sharing your f*aith-walk here with people seeking around the world.  The door is WIDE OPEN!

I cannot imagine another way, at this stage of my life, to go to Africa, Asia, all over the world.  It is such a unique way to “go into all the world”.  It’s an unbelievable opportunity for anyone who feels led, however, there are some hard questions as you sign on, asking you to be an authentic disciple, solid in your own walk and commitments before you join on. 

Check out the post below for more details, don’t be afraid if God is leading.  You won’t regret it.  Ask me any question on your mind about it.  I won’t try to talk you into it, but I will talk to you about it if you are interested.

Me, today?  I’m painting.  I just got the rollers washed out (for the millionth time, it seems) and it’s 1AM.  I’m feeling snack-y, again.  The smell of paint must bring it out of me.  Felt God speaking to me, teaching me, tonight as I painted.  I love the Holy Spirit in us who teaches us as we work–makes it such an intimate joy to work together. 

Tonight’s thought as I paint:  a strong desire for “one solid color”…nothing peeking through, sticking out, or overlapping.  One.  Only one.   Covering all else until it is all we see is One and only One.

    I will definitely be praying about it. Especially during this time of rest from work and going to school for counseling, God may be directing my attention there. Thank you for being the vessel through which God can transmit His will to His people 🙂

    I am amazed at how God can talk to us through various activities that on the surface, may have nothing to do with our faith walk [paint?!] AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME GOD that we serve!

    I love to paint btw. Wish I was nearby to help! I would have it all over my nose and hands though; I tend to get fidgety :/

    Love ya!

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
