Have you ever just sat and listened to the silence? Well, to be quite honest - that doesn't happen very often here in the Browning household, and I am just fine with that. However, when it does - I have great opportunity for reflection. It's good to look back and utter thanks for what has transpired. It is good to give thanks for how Christ chooses to mold and shape you.
Well, it's quiet right now ... and I am left to my reflections.
I chose this picture to post because it encapsulates how I view my husband. Here, he is tenderly brushing the hair from my face as the wind whips around us. That is how life has been. He has tenderly cared for me and the children as "life" whips around us.
I love this man.
I think how sweetly my Saviour has cared for me ... right down to the most intimate of thoughts and feelings.
I also think of all my children. How I love them and desire the best for them, knowing that the best is God's will for their life. I think of my sons - and how proud I am of their accomplishments.
I think of my daughters and how it blesses my heart to see the nurturing qualities that comes with their character.
I think to the future and smile. Yes, I smile.
My life, while far from perfect - or maybe even far from desirable by some standards, is just right for me.
A little bit of chaos mixed in with a whole lot of love.
(and I even get a quiet evening here and there for a rambling reflection)
Thank you Jesus.

thank you for that little glimpse of your peace as you face many trials. a lot of people take thier trials with bitterness. but a few take it and allow it to form a pearl.(my mom taught this at ladies retreat.)in the midst of our trials is when non-christians view our reactions the most. we must always look to Christ for our peace. say hello to the family.
