Sitting In The Quiet On Christmas Adam


Today is Christmas Adam, the day before Christmas Eve.  It's quiet this morning with the kids sleeping in, and Tim off to work.

I'm spending time talking with the Lord - praying about details for the wedding, work for Tim over the winter months (especially with the rain), the day ahead.

I'm going to get my hair trimmed today, and then I pick up my dear friend Jane from the train station.  She is coming in from NYC which she has been visiting as a birthday treat with her oldest daughter.  Her husband, our pal Rick (we've known them 26 years), is driving up from Florida and visiting some of his family in Maryland before he arrives here!  We are so excited to have them spending Christmas with us!  They are going to visit some other friends between Christmas and the wedding, but will definitely be here for the wedding.  The kids are excited that today is the day they come, and so are we.  They're family, though not by blood.

That is all that is on my 'official' schedule, though that will likely change.  No cello lessons today, and no work for Emma or Rachel.  The pace has slowed and we are enjoying the change, even if it is only for a few days.

6 days and counting until the wedding.

They're calling for rain most of this week and next, including the wedding day.  Will you pray with us for this to change to NO Rain?  We don't even care about sunny skies!  Just no rain.  They are having an evening wedding, but are wanting to have outdoor photos taken in the afternoon.  Overcast skies will give great diffused light but rain will make it a pain!

Thanks for you prayers, and friendship and care.   



  1. I will certainly be praying for your family over the next days! May peace and joy reign!

    Christmas blessings to all of you with much love...

  2. It sounds like the same as our weather predictions, yet it seems to change frequently from what they say so we will pray. If not, umbrella photos might be cute!

  3. I told Elijah that today was "christmas adam" and he said "it should be Mary or Joseph since they had the baby!" Haha!

  4. Christmas Adam is a term unfamiliar to me. Always learning something new here. It is very rainy isn't it? I have not been able to make fudges or anything because of it. It would be frustrating to have rain on the wedding day so I will join with you in praying for no rain. Have fun with your friends and family. Merry Christmas, Dear Rabes!

  5. Just prayed that all will go well. Have a lovely time with your family friends. :)

We've had overcast and rainy days, so I don't have a lot of new photos to show you. Here is one of me earlier this spring. I had a c...
