My online m*ss*onary community is up to sixteen now, five mature and the others just out of training–a joy to help them.  I’ve been catching up this morning on questions.  I enjoy teaching just as much as I did sharing Christ…and that’s a relief.  I was afraid I’d miss my evangelism time.  Just finished writing next week’s email newsletter.  Those doing training are using some of the newsletters as models to other community leaders, and that’s an honor to hear about as I returned to town. 

This morning, The Hub helped me move the piano before he left for work so that I can get back to taking down chair-rail and spackling the hole left there to finish painting that half of that room.  It’s a pretty golden-carmel color I wasn’t sure I liked at first, but now, it’s everyone’s fav!  I can’t wait to see the books OUT of the entry hall stacked in the floor!  I tripped over them the other night, forgetting they were there and nearly broke my neck.

I love the open sound of the piano away from the wall as I was just practicing/trying to learn “Running” by chord chart today by Christ for the Nations Institute for worship on Sunday.  Here it is if you want a preview:

They get into it for 10 minutes.  I doubt we will go that long!  However, I could take it for that long if there worship were as good as this video! 

I need to sweep down the pool and get to business.  The Hub and I want to do some furniture-looking this afternoon.  I won’t say “shopping” because we never seem to really know how to buy things that match and go together, but we are ready to enjoy the process again of looking!  After four years living here with some rooms still rather empty, we are ready to get some “stuff” I guess!

    i had to laugh at “m*ss*onary”… but i completely understand why. lol!!

    though, the ones ending up on sites looking for the other reason are probably good candidated for needing this reason.

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
