MomQ Wednesday, A Phone Call!

November 5, 2008 at 12:30 pm Leave a comment

Just heard from Mom…she had a much better day today.

Prayer Answered: the potential for her getting moved to another base she’d have to be flown to has been averted.  Thank you, Lord!  That would not have been best for her, so I’m very grateful, and so is she!  She has some prayer warriors there supervising her where she is and taking care of her…I’m so glad!  Just what we prayed for, friends.  Thank you!

Possible Job Change: It actually seems like she may be moved to an office job with a laptop, so we are thankful to hear about that possibility.  She doesn’t believe much of anything until she sees it, but that’s the last she heard.

Heard from Pop: She heard from Pop today and thinks he will be there Monday.  She is saying her supplies will last until then–meds and such.  She is still living out of the duffel from the airport.  Since Pop didn’t sign a release for her to get mail, she still can’t get her stuff and still has not moved to permanent housing.

I wonder if she can get the cards we sent?  The are to his address, but have her name on them?  Hmmmm.

Limits on Communication: She said to let you guys know it is like 11PM by the time she can get to the phone and email and she has to get up at 5AM, so time to read and write and communicate is very short…so I’ll try to do as much as I can from her to you here to save her time.  I hope it is helpful.

Note on Emails with Attachments: If you send photos or things with attachments, realize email is VERY slow.  She read three emails and my blog in half an hour and it was very late, so watch big files or emails with large photos.  Downsize your photos, or contact me as to how to do that if you don’t know how.

Believing Friends: She is thankful for three praying believers she has met there in training and said that are all praying for, supporting her, and rooting for her.  This is an answer to my prayer as well.

Prayer Needs:  I told her if she ever had any immediate prayer needs to quickly let me know somehow and I’d issue an alert.  They may be brief, but we’d know to pray until she got relief.  She said she would do that.

Balance Wednesday: Me

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
