This Week’s Verse: Everything…

July 23, 2008 at 8:31 pm 1 comment

Tonight, our memory verse was the longest of the class, but it is, my favorite.

“Everything in the heavens and earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your Kingdom.  We adore you as being in control of everything.  Riches and honor come from you alone.  And you are the ruler of all mankind.  Your hand controls power and might. And it is at your discretion that men are made great and given strength.”

I Coronicles 29:11-12

I pray that wherever you are today, God will give you strength for the journey, just as He promised in that verse…that he will give you assurance he is in control of everything that comes your way.  So much joy comes from trusting in that!  Trust him, and let him have everything that concerns you.  JOY!

I led the class tonight, and was a little nervous because people I love and respect and who have much greater wisdom than me are in the class.  I just facilitated, thankfully, keeping us on time and on task.  I have much to learn, but I thank God for his patience, mercy, and gentle teaching with me in areas of stewardship where I stumble over and over.  He is such a patient and faithful Father!

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
