Her Easter Layout #3

April 21, 2009 at 10:34 am 2 comments


Okay, so I had trouble making the other layout work for the opposite side of the page.  AND, I wanted to use a few other photos, so I felt better about this layout.  There were a lot of “new” things for her this Easter over last, so I wanted to hit those.  Her Daddy took the largest photo for me before Easter, I got a few after church when it was warmer and I could see her dress before without the sweater (took us three towns and two shopping trips to find that dear sweater!  Once you turn ten, things get tough to look “pretty”.)

I had gotten up to fix her hair (she is just starting to part it this year on her own without complaint–never would let me before) and check clothes before I left for praise band practice.  I got the boys clothes touched up with the iron.

I said to her, “find a pretty necklace to go with your dress, maybe?”

When she came, she had a cross on.  It was tarnished and large, not at all the dainty thing I’d envisioned with the whipsy dress!

And yet, that spoke to me as I finished playing the worship segment and found her in the pew wit hit on…. that the cross, tarnished, a little large, worn.

Yes, very appropriate for Easter.

The perfect choice.

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
