Hi everyone and welcome back to week number 55 of our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
The year is fast ending and Christmas is definitely in sight now and then comes the New Year.
Are we ready to face the New Year or do we have unfinished business at hand?? When the first of January kicks around we always think of new beginnings and a fresh start to try again to be better or kinder, but we don’t need to wait for the first of the first to try again.
God forgives us and each moment is a new one, a new opportunity to give our hearts and lives to Him. A new opportunity to be forgiven and to forgive others. Let’s not wait…
Ephesians 4:32 – And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
This week has been good, and very exciting as we were getting ready to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. He is such a wonderful, caring man and I have been blessed to be married to him for nearly 27 years. My love for him grows stronger each day and I look forward to many more years together.
He has been busy getting our crop baled which was completed on Tuesday, all done and carted in, ready to be fed out when necessary. Our son also finished our shearing for us this week and that’s another seasonal job completed. Sometimes we give a huge sigh when it is done because these jobs are very weather orientated and this year is has gone smoothly.
We have had our wonderful son-in-law, daughter and their children here for a few days to help us and also to celebrate with us. They are a wonderful gift and it is always good to spend time together. Our daughters have been great organising the food and getting everything ready for the party and our son-in-law was a wonderful help getting the outside all cleaned up and looking great.
We had nearly 100 people here on Saturday night and all the children had a wonderful time together, and it was almost like thanksgiving in that we are so thankful that my husband has reached this milestone and also thankful that family and friends could help celebrate with us. We are a big party family and always enjoy getting people around.
Now, because I know you are so interested, below are some pictures of our beautiful grandchildren.
Our top three link ups were….

One Reason You Should Show Kindness by Ifeoma at Purposeful and Meaningful
The Right Response To The Paris Terror Attacks by Woman Abiding
What a wonderful community this is and I appreciate every one of you who stop by and link up and I have, and do enjoy getting to know you all better. We don’t have to live close to be close, do we.
This coming week is a bit quieter for me. I don’t have to have the screw removed from my ankle now which I am rather thankful for. It seems I stressed out the anethetists too much and they didn’t want to touch me again, seems my veins wouldn’t behave, so our trip to Geelong is off.
We have a church leadership social evening on Friday night at our Pastor’s house and we do this at least a couple times a year. It’s good to know that the men in leadership support and care for each other.
We have our local show on Saturday morning and No 2 daughter is getting geared up to do some cooking to enter, and No 1 son is going into the shearing comp again. I think I may take my gopher and scoot around on that this year as I’m not quite up to walking it all and it is hard work on uneven ground pushing a wheelchair.
Oh and I think we have our Revelation study on Tuesday night, which we missed last time due to my husbands work, but hopefully we will make this one.
Like I said before we don’t need the New Year to start again and we don’t need to wait for the beginning of a new week, we can start again right now. Please Lord help us not to harbour bad feelings, resentment or unforgiveness in our hearts.
Have a great week.
Numbers 6:24-26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”
Blessings to you all my dear friends. xxxx
