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.

A Favorite Verse

James 1:27 (KJV)
"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."
This really is a beautiful verse to reflect on. Love it.

Our little Justus is getting so big and accomplishing so much. Just a quick update. He is now sitting unassisted for quite a long time, playing with toys in his basket. He is also starting to eat many foods; sweet potatoes, yogurt, applesauce, baby cereal, etc.

Each little milestone reached makes my heart sing. "Slow and steady wins the race"
He'll "get there" in his own timing and as God allows. We praise God for our little Butter boy.
