It finally snowed here this morning. 5 whole centimeters!
It looks so pretty.
Can you see the snowflakes falling against the tree bark?
Too bad it's now turned to freezing rain and will be raining tonight and tomorrow.
I expect the 5 cm. of snow will be mostly gone by this time tomorrow.
So, are you wondering why I titled this post 8 more sleeps? No, I didn't make a mistake in the
number of sleeps until Christmas. Because.... it's 8 more sleeps until we see Mr. Precious.
As I was having my morning tea by the Christmas tree I realized it's only a week until
we fly to Alberta (in Canada's west) for Christmas with our daughter,
son-in-law and grandson.
You see. My dear mother-in-law is not well. She is 94, in a nursing home, has
dementia and doesn't know us, and her heart is getting weaker everyday. It's just
a matter of time and God's will. We are waiting and wondering if, when, how.
So, I'm sort of going ahead with our plans to go away but in the back of my mind I'm holding
back my excitement - just in case. It's an awful feeling.
I don't know how to pray for I feel selfish. So, I pray for God's will as He knows
our hearts and what is best for us.
I hope to be shopping tomorrow. I'd like to finish my gift buying but I have 2 appointments
and errands too. A busy day.
It is now raining and blowing outside. It's going to be a nasty night.
We have choir and band practice tonight at church for our Christmas music night on Sunday.
It's always a beautiful night of worship, awesome music and of course, a time of
fellowship afterwards (food!).
I hope your day is going well.
This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.
