Wow.  Life changes SO fast.  My little girl is about to graduate from elementary school!  She is facing so many changes.  I’ve stayed in denial pretty well, but with graduation approaching, it’s like a huge shock to the system.  So many changes in her…

And I’ve had to take a break from recording and blogging or I might miss it!  LOL

I’m on the annual push to get school yearbooks rolling before school lets out.  I need to focus!  I’ve got the mess, and a year of one child done, but need to keep rolling to get the messed cleaned up!

I wanted to get out bathroom ready for summer I stripped the wallpaper off two years ago, but that’s not going anywhere!  Ugh!  Don’t enjoy preparing the walls for painting!

I’ve had the cold of the century this week.  It’s not been fun, but I’m about over it…except for a cough, and I still don’t want to go outside.  I went to bed at like 8PM last night!  Again!

Upward Soccer is well underway…coaching Red’s team…watching Goldilock’s last year.

Preparing music for praise team Sunday morning…much work to do today.

Need to get the pancakes rolling and get cleaned up…much to do this morning!

Memorizing Psalm 37:  “Trust in the Lord and do good, dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture” is a quick excerpt.

The Lord accomplishes all the concerns him!

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
