Larry Update: Prayer Request

April 11, 2009 at 8:46 am 1 comment

Yesterday was a difficult day for my step-Dad, Larry.  The next two will prove to be high stress with Easter.  There was five losses, the highest yet.   One news source says they weren’t actually aiming for the US or the base, but a city p*lice st*tion nearby.  Who knows…

They’ll be under alert the next two days, having to wear the “comfy clothes”.  (Not exactly).

On the up-side, Mom is home and got to come watch “Tale of Despereaux” with us last night over pizza, chocolate chip cookies, and ice cream.  Flash wanted lots of cuddle time.

    Praying for Larry and his group. Praying also for Dori’s family.

    I was intrigued by the coffee table buy. With all we have faced this past year, the Lord clearly spoke to my heart as I read your post, that I need to learn how to thrift-shop. I really am not very good at this. But it would surely help our need for replacing certain items over our 18 years of marriage.

    I am so glad you were blessed by P, C &D. That was my favorite of the list, too, because it was so heartfelt in bringing me before the Lord.

    Love you!

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
