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

~ our bits & pieces of winter quiet ~

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.

  Giggles and cute, funny faces

Yes, He has made me glad.

  2. love the silly pictures of both boys!! Both so adorable and silly in their own way :) :) (Andrew and Evie love their trains too!)
