I Need Your Prayers–Saturday

May 17, 2008 at 8:40 am 3 comments

Ever Stretch Yourself? I think my skinny jeans should fit today, I’m stetching myself so much.  You know, wake up sick to your stomach, feeling a weight that you know shouldn’t be there, but you can’t help it, because it’s so important?

Today is the day I walk across the fields for the Upward soccer games and put the plan of salvation in the hands of the adults for the first time this season.  About 125. 

We’ve never had a result in soccer from the simplified ABCs version, so I took it just a little more personal a route this time.  I hope it connects with someone–specifically, with one I’ve been praying for.

Pray for strength and boldness for me. 

When I woke up, I walked by the computer, and a verse I was meditating on last week was up.  Why…I don’t know, I didn’t pull it up before I went to bed last night.  I must have closed a program and had this minimized behind it… 

“…at work within US,

to HIM be the glory IN THE CHURCH and IN CHRIST JESUS.”

I had written it out for myself.

My husband once taught that when he gets all the glory, it doesn’t matter if we fail or succeed.  We stand nothing to lose.  Might as well pour it all out.  No holds barred.  Lord, give me your eyes, your heart, help my kids (the hub has to work today…keep them uninjured and in good spirits).   

Be God.  Also, may the power of Jesus bind the enemy from those three fields and from anything that would keep those away who need to hear. 

Bring pray-ers out today. My writing deadline fell so late this week because Thursday was so full that I didn’t get to ask for prayer as much as I like to.  I know I can’t do it in my own strength.  I need your prayers…

    Well, you are probably off the field by now, but I am confident that the Holy Spirit lead just as He willed and God will use whatever happened today. I am looking forward to a time when we are not both living a “project” driven life!

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
