Father, I know that all my life
Is portioned out for me;
The changes that are sure to come,
I do not fear to see:
I ask Thee for a present mind,
Intent on pleasing Thee.
I would not have the restless will
That hurries to and fro,
Seeking for some great thing to do,
Or Secret thing to know;
I would be treated as a child,
And guided where I go.
I ask Thee for the daily strength,
To non that ask denied,
A mind to blend with outward life,
While keeping at Thy side,
Content to fill a little space,
If Thou be glorified.
In service which Thy will appoints
There are no bonds for me;
My secret heart is taught the truth
That makes Thy children free;
A life of self-renouncing love
Is one of liberty.

This past weekend, Claudia and I painted and rearranged David's room while he was out of town! Lets just say it was a great surprise when he got home. 8) Here are a few pictures of the *before, during and after.
*I forgot to take pictures before I took the furniture out of his room, so they are what it looked like with almost nothing left in the room.
Hope you enjoy a little window into what my past weekend looked like!

Well today started a little different for an average Saturday at the Brown's Barn. Mom came up to tell me that Kelly was in the early stages of labor and that I needed to come down right away and get her on the next flight out to San Antonio. So, after about 45 minutes on the computer and the phone, I was able to get her on an 11:00 am flight. She arrived in TX just after 3:00 pm.
At 8:00 pm central time, Kelly gave birth to a healthy baby boy!! I am so thankful to the Lord for giving Kelly the strength she needed and for blessing both she and Peter with a new miracle. Here is the information that I have: He looks like Peter, with light hair. Weighs 7 pounds and measured in at 19 1/2 inches!!
With much joy and delight,
