Wednesday: Me

This blog post held was written in response to the elections as to people’s reactions today. T the devotion itself was great for me in general.  I totally needed the scriptures and Jesus’ calming voice there.

It sounds like the book is a take on the book “God Calling” I read as a teen.  I loved that book, but some didn’t like it because it seems to put words in God’s mouth he did not directly say.  One mainstream Christian store refused to carry it at one time because of complaints on that line.  Still, it is simply a narrative based on Biblical principles, making them personal.  I like it and can distinguish man-writing from God-writing of scripture.

In any case, so loved that post–so strengthening.


The carpet was laid in the TV room today.  Looks so fresh and clean we hesitated to move any furniture back in there.

We didn’t finish today–the steps to the basement have double spindles.  I totally love them (keeps the kids from falling through).  However, the carpet layer–not loving them.   Just a of work for him.

I like all my carpet turned under and tacked at the transitions to other flooring to keep it from raveling, and to cover the other flooring well.  He didn’t do that and it’s driving me a little nuts. Already cut now.  Be a happy girl and go on.  You’d think there’d be standards so you could just know things were logically done and not have to worry about giving directions.  He seems to do a good job, but those things make a big difference to me.


So, today:  laundry, house – sat for carpet, stayed up too late last night getting floors ready and am exhausted tonight.   Forgot my allergy meds today and the smell of hot glue and carpet got me!

Tomorrow:  Must shop for Samaritan’s purse tomorrow night for the kids to make the school deadline!

    Dear Maggie,

    First of all, thanks for the “shoebox” reminder!! Gotta do that myself!!

    Secondly, I’m glad the devo ministered to you. It ministered to me, too!

    Hope you have a good day and that the carpet thing works out. I’m feeling a bit better physically this morning. But girl, that medicine the doc gave for my cough at night WORKS!!! I slept better last night than I have slept in months!!! 🙂

    Blessings, friend!

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
