Change of Plans

January 4, 2009 at 3:30 pm 3 comments

We thought Pop and Mom were flying home, but he’s not stable enough…change of plans.  They are flying him mil to Germ to a hosp there to undergo tests and proceedures.  He will arrive Tuesday, probably without Mom, and either have a stint or bi-pass surgery, or nothing, depending.  Could be something as simple as reflux, could be who knows what.

Continue to pray for peace for them, for Christians to be found to serve them, for peace for all, good care…you know the drill.  I’ve been on the phone three hours between family and work related calls here…I’m off to recoup a sec!

    Father God, please draw near Larry and surround Him with the warmth of Your presence right now. Bring him the best care available and grant the doctors wisdom and discernment as they seek to find the cause of his chest pain and the best course of action to treat it. Remind Larry that although his wife isn’t with him, he is not alone. Make Yourself very real to him, Lord. Place believers in his path that can come alongside and encourage him.

    I pray for Maggie’s Mom, Lord. Speak soothing words of peace to her soul as well. Quiet her with Your love and sing a new song over her tonight. Reassure her of Your power and control – remind her that You can take better care of Larry than she ever could, and that You love him even more than she does. Give her patience as she waits for news, and contentment as she rests in You.

    Pour out Your Spirit on Your child Maggie tonight, Lord. You know the weariness she feels. You know her anxieties, her fears, her frustrations. Help her to cast them all at Your feet and leave them in Your tender care, Father. Give her clarity of mind, even though there must be so many thoughts in her head right now. Help her to keep her eyes on You, the author and perfecter of her faith. Give her Jesus-colored glasses, Lord. Embrace her with Your arms of love and give her a sweet night’s sleep so that she can awake refreshed and ready to face all You have for her tomorrow. Thank You for her willingness to be such a light in this dark world. Thank You for her faithfulness to speak the things You lay on her heart. Thank for using her as a source of encouragement, inspiration, humor — and yes, even conviction — in my life. Bless her, Father. In the precious name of the One who holds all our tomorrows I pray… Amen.

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
