Well, The Weekend Flew By

Incredible.  Here we are on Monday of Christmas week!  Time is flying by!


I hope you are savouring the moments, and enjoying a good cup of tea, now and then, and listening to good music and enjoying all the joy of this season.

 Emma's fiance' Vinnie arrived early as a surprise to her!  We all knew he was coming, and it was hard to not tell her.  They are getting their license today!  

This is a full week for us, so I'm not sure how much I'll be posting.  Tim turns 50 on Thursday, and that is also the day that Rachel takes her driving test.  She's ready, but a bit nervous.  So excited for her.  

Our long time friends Rick and Jane are coming on Wednesday to spend Christmas with us and celebrate Tim's birthday.  His brother is home from Africa so we get to see them too!

Christmas is a favorite day around here, then we have the weekend, and the rehearsal on Monday evening, then the wedding!  I told someone at church yesterday that in a blink of an eye, it'll be over.

That's the way life is.  The Bible says that our lives are a like a vapor, here and then gone.  I love the verse that says "Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom."     Psalm 90:12

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.  So thankful for His coming into a world of darkness, in such need of a Saviour.  Not so very different than our need today. 


  1. You do have a full week! I am staying busy also but making sure I do take time to enjoy!

  2. =D It's going to be an amazing week! And busy. A very Merry and Bright Christmas Week to you all. Many blessing as you celebrate so many joys.

  3. Your amazing week plus a little has arrived! I hope you can enjoy each moment of celebrating God's loving gift to us and the love of your daughter and her man.

  4. I am also thankful for our Saviour.....and that's a good verse to remember from Psalms. Thanks for sharing it.
