Letter to Mom

January 5, 2009 at 1:00 pm 3 comments

Mom doesn’t have her own computer and personal email is hard to do on someone else’s computer, so you all will have to indulge me here while we try to talk in a safe place to do so…

Mom, I thought Larry would not be flying out until tonight?  Has he already flown?  Was the flight full? I’m sorry.

How are you?  Emotional, I’m sure.  Hang in there!

Praying for you much today as you go through the evening.  I don’t think I can call you right now since you aren’t in your office at this time.

A Psalm for you:  “My heart and my flesh may fail, BUT…God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever!”

Get rest.  Eat.  Wait well.  I’ll see you soon.  Praying for you every minute.

    Actually I do have my computer back now for a few more days since I can’t go to be with L. So, until I process out, again, to get out of here, when I hear news from L.”s condition, I will have my computer for about another week. Love to all and keep the prayers lifted to the Father. Thank you everyone from both of us. B.

    I know this is a difficult time for all of you. Being away from the ones you love when you feel like they need you the most is hard. God speaks to us through His word and blesses us with Psalms to bring us comfort. A Psalm I read this morning that I thought might speak peace over you all…”Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you” (55:22). He will hold you up as you wait… With love and prayers…

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
