Sunday Review

I was totally zonked today going into worship.  I just needed to curl up and zone.  I finally recovered, and the kids LOVED play dough today for Sunday School.  I couldn’t get the out of the room.  They haven’t done that in a while apparently.

I painted the 15′ foyer yesterday (ooh!  Self challenge there), did Upward soccer, had a class social, and painted again  until midnight.   Now I have to figure out how to touch up the ceiling where I hit it in about three spots.  I was dreamed of how to do that at times during church…sorry, Lord.  But, I appreciate the good ideas.  I have an old container of Un-do with a plastic spatula on the end I think would serve as a guard against the fresh paint if I strap a brush or sponge on it and tape the whole thing to my extension handle.

Came home, did Mommy-forced clean-up with the kids.  Feels good to get out from under drywall and dust for a day.

Just sitting down to life with six kids for the afternoon while Bryan and Misty go out for their anniversary.  They are all SO content at the moment it’s amazing. 

Kroger is emailing me the weekly ad and some weekly coupons.  Loving that email prompt! for the service and a store near you,  and here for  Coupons.  I have my list and coupons done for the week in about five minutes, including this blogging time.  LOVE online work.

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
