a winter calm


Like a shy falling of quiet snow that blankets the landscape, so has a hush gently fallen over our household.
 
But to notice it, you must look closely.
 
In many ways the landscape of our day looks exactly the same. There are still the endless noises of daily life and daily needs. Indeed, the loudness of it all sometimes swirls aggressively around me, attempting to stir up emotions.
 
However, over the mountains and valleys of our journey, there is a hush of peace to our countenance.
 
 
This is the day - the life - the Lord has made.

Today, in spite of the noise - no, because of the noise and His presence in the midst of the noise, I will rejoice in it.

He has made me glad.

"For our heart is glad in Him,
because we trust in His holy name."
Psalm 33:21

Wesley & Grant enjoy listening to music and stories on CD, a favorite indoor activity








Because sleep is a precious commodity in our household (sleeplessness is one symptom of Fragile X Syndrome), I cherish every second of it. And, like every mother, I love the precious scene of my boys sleeping.

Wesley's groovin' dance moves :)

Yes, He has made me glad.

worth waiting for

Today I am thankful for God's timing. Not because it fits with my "logical plan" and comforts - in fact, currently, it very much does not fit with my logic :) - but because His timing is perfect and it exhibits His sovereignty.

It forces me to lean fully on Him.


"I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I hope..." Psalm 130:5

...In that stillness you will know what His will is.
