This was my Proverb today delivered to my mailbox.

3 By wisdom a house is built,
and through understanding it is established;

4 through knowledge its rooms are filled
with rare and beautiful treasures.

    Good morning! Thank you for the Word this morning. I’ve been reading back through your blog and loving it. I love the “cardboard” living room color – since caramel is my favorite flavor. It is looking great! (I’m in the middle of painting my house too – haven’t gotten into colors yet since hubby picked out the paint – but I will!)
    The update from your cousin is wonderful…
    Enjoyed everything… blessings and glad your eyes are working! Praise God!!!

    Enjoyed the Word. It reminded me of several points made in “Becoming a Woman of Excellence.”
    BTW the house is looking good 🙂

ME: “MAGGIE”

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)
