O Adonai ~ O Lord and Ruler (Dec 18th)

O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel, qui Moysi in igne flammæ rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti: veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.

O Adonai, and Ruler of the house of Israel, Who didst appear unto Moses in the burning bush, and gavest him the law in Sinai, come to redeem us with an outstretched arm!

It is snowing like crazy outside!!! We have NEVER had this much snow in December. The local schools were closed today, and since hubby wasn't able to get to work, it looks like his Christmas vacation began a day early!!! He just finished trimming a bit off the bottom of our tree, and suggested lighting up the bottom branches and have a real "burning bush" here tonight and roast a few marshmallows! FUN!

I also thought it would be fun to tie in the part of the Antiphon "Ruler of the house of Israel" with putting together our own Gingerbread House House of Israel. I can't wait... The children will LOVE it!

Well, I am off to enjoy our snowy day. If you don't have snow where you live, and even if you DO, don't miss Charlotte's Texas Snow Day! It sounds like SO MUCH FUN!!!


  1. every day has been a snow day around here, snow or not. school hasnt been going on much with the christmas knitting rush...almost done...almost done

    and why were you signed in to IM last night when you werent home but when you are home you arent signed in. argh


  2. I wish we had snow!!! We had a "snow day" on Tuesday of this week because the temps dropped below freezing and we had some precipitation...all together = icy roads. We Texans are big babies and love to cancel school for the slightest thing. :) Oh well, gave me a good reason to spend the day at home with the kids.

    Happy Advent!

  3. Beautiful YouTube!

    Cute gingerbread house! We've never made one, We have no where to put it!!

    Glad you are getting some snow, we have a ton already!!
