What is his name? Here, The Hub

How long have you been married? 16 years

How long did you date? 1 year, + 6 mo. engagement or so

How old is he?  older than me… by 8.5 years. 😀

Who eats more sweets? Me.  He likes salt.

Who said I love you first? Hmmm…I think we pretty much walked into it together.  We wrote a lot in those days while he was in school.  I’m not sure if signing “Love, _______” counts or not.

Who is taller? He is.   A girl’s gotta wear heels.

Who can sing better?   Hmmm…jhard question.  I am more technical, but I think he’s often more joyful and whole-hearted.  He challenges me.

Who is smarter? I am (it’s my blog and I’ll be smarter if I want–Amen!) I’ll just agree with Misty on this one.

Who does the laundry? Me.  Me.  Me.  I won’t mention that I had to put away the socks I sat on his sink to be put away with a sigh this morning.  He did say “Thank you”, however.

Who pays the bills? The computer.  If there are any left over, which are few, he does.  I hate stamps.  I hate mail in general.  Except cards.  I like cards.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? He does, though we’ve switched back and forth through the years for various reasons.  We can each sleep anywhere.

Who mows the lawn? We both enjoy it, but pay the yard people.  Thank goodness!

Who cooks dinner? We can both cook.  I cook most often.  He grills and cooks great breakfasts.  He is joyful in the kitchen and a good cook.

Who drives? Both.  He often works, so he asks me to drive so he can play catch-up on paper work.

Who is more stubborn? I probably am–but it’s only because he thinks he’s always right.  Obviously his fault.
Who kissed who first? I think we attacked each other by the time we had our first kiss.

Who asked who out first? I’m not even going to begin to try to explain this one here.  It’s complicated.

Who proposed? He did–

Who has more siblings? Me.

Who wears the pants? Depends on the subject, but I try very hard to defer to him.

Now…what about your hubby????? Play along if you wish.

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
