Magnanimously homeschooling, worshiping, creating.......

Join us on a journey of faith, healing, learning to live with part of our hearts missing, and recovery, as our family rebuilds our lives, after our son's long battle with cancer....and his eventual rise on eagle's wings into Heaven...victory is his...he is serving the King!!!

happy new year!!


I can't believe that I forgot to write this yesterday! We just got busy completely and utterly relaxing. When I started to think of something to do, I just turned it off and relaxed. We played games around the table. (Have you played Bananagrams yet??It's addicting) I am gearing up for getting order restored this weekend. The tree will come down and all the Christmas deco will go back into it's little red and green boxes. It's always sad to say goodbye, but how much would we love them if they were here all year? It feels good to clean it up.
My littles have been having a blast in all this snow! Don't you love those pink cheeks?

Here's a small list of things coming up for us this year:

KEEPING CHRIST FIRST.
END OF TREATMENT FOR BRAVEHEART!!
GRADUATION OF SENIOR SON!
PLANNING AND GOING ON B'S MAKE A WISH TRIP!
GETTING THESE FEET HEALED.
WILL THE WEIGHT COME OFF? :) Glenn and I are sugar fasting in Jan. Pray for us.
GET THAT HOME IN ORDER.


You all have an excellent new year!

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

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.
