A Child’s Boquet

I found these out in the wet sandpile the day after they bloomed.  My daugher had “planted” them there.   Cute!


Red had a fever of 104.1 on Tylenol and Advil today.  Talk about some freak out.  It just kept creeping up and up and up every twenty minutes.  Finally got him in a lukewarm bath and it came down to 100.5.  Whew.  It continued to go down after that.  Still low grade…he’s chilling now that the Tylenol is wearing off…rather than risk it, I re-dosed him.  It’s going to be a long night!  Poor guy will miss a birthday party they were looking forward to tomorrow.


I did get the fridge shelves cleaned and wiped down, the dishwasher emptied, and a load of laundry dried to get BoyWonder off to his youth trip.  I hope he doesn’t get sick away from home!  I sent him prepared though, just in case.


My heart is set on goals ofnew goals.  Enjoying gears start to turn again here and there after a long winter.


Praying for a first cousin of mine, young and with recurring cancer.  Doesn’t look encouraging at all.


Listening to the much anticipated “Fineus and Ferb” episode on Disney.


Just ate spinach pizza and some of The Hub’s carry-out Chinese.  (No time to cook today!)


Listened to a Psalm on CD from a gift a friend got me for Christmas today.  I love Psalm 1.


Started Passing Into Light by Sahron Ewell Foster.  I find it even hard to find Christian fiction I enjoy anymore.  I like the thread of integrity and a good story line, not just a hormonal romance with some sort of evangelical salvation story thrown in.


Well, that’s it for tonight…time to hit the hay early!

Have a great weekend!  Any special challenges for you this weekend?

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
