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!!!

beautiful sunny sunday

The sun is shining today, with a lovely breeze. I alternate between much needed deep cleaning inside and sitting and reading outside on my modest porch and of coarse, cooking food for 'bottomless pit boy'. :) He is off with dad, at the moment, ordering our new dishwasher which we are in desperate need of. It has been far too long of the old one not quite working right.
The list of things is long. My thoughts wander easily. Priorities are just...different. I am getting ready for the school year. Planning what to do with B until the transplant, during the transplant and after the transplant. Planning what to do with the two littles. Torn between what I CAN do, what I LONGto do, what I WISH I could do and what I SHOULD do...in other words...what the Lord LEADS me to do.
The garden needs weeding. I may get out there. The ratio of weeds to veggies is detestable. I will not give up on my 2 spinach plants, 3 pole beans, one watermelon seeding, many reseeded tomato plants and the turnips and arugula I threw in to get rid of the seeds and feed the hamsters a treat!!
Oh, I think I have one broccoli that survived. woot woot.
B's head is large but he is almost done and is in good spirits. I am so proud of him. He is some amazing kid. He told my mom the other day that he may wish he had lost a limb than have cancer. Ugh.
Be healed Braveheart, in Jesus name!!

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.
