Hi there everyone and welcome back to Good Morning Mondays.
Have you had a good week??? Ours was good and cold.
The weather has really turned this past few days and it almost snowed on Thursday and that is very rare. We do get some snow on one of the mountains in the Grampians and this happens most years but for us to get it down here is amazing.
This was on the day that we headed down to the Warrnambool Eisteddfod on Thursday. We had to take it very slow on the roads as they were covered in ice. I was so glad that we were in a heated auditorium for the sessions. It also poured with rain most of the day and at times it was hard to hear the young pianists playing.
Our children had a great day and received placings in all their sections. Overall the standard was very good and quite a few of the children playing were homeschooled.
Our son-in-law, daughter and their children came down for the day also and it was great to have them there. We had a lovely day and then we all spent the evening with our good friends who live down that way. They are a beautiful family and have 10 children so there are always plenty of people to play with.
It was so great to enjoy a meal together and talk the evening away. The children, including the older ones, played spoons which is a lively, and somewhat noisy game. We came away encouraged and blessed with our time spent together.
Do you have friends that you just sit and talk about God and what He is doing in your lives??? It is a wonderful thing. I encourage you to find a friend like that.
We had to go to Warrnambool again on Friday for one final session and then we came home. Our music teacher gave us Saturday off so we got to have a sleep in and a relaxing day. We will have a lesson during the coming week sometime.
Sunday we headed back to our friends church to hear him preach on Prayer and Fasting.
I took the above photo from our front veranda during a break from the rain. I love seeing rainbows as it reminds me of how God keeps His promises. What a blessing.
Okay onto our link up…

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up, I hope you were blessed by it.
This coming week is going to be mainly spent at home. We will have a music lesson but apart from that we will be staying inside and keeping warm.
My husband is going to be running a Good to Great Father’s Course over the next 10 weeks and it starts this Thursday night, so if you have time your prayers would be appreciated for the men in the course. There are going to be 5 of them including my husband.
Because we went to church elsewhere we swapped our soup making with another lady so we will need to make soup this week. I have to deal with some pumpkins that are starting to go rotten so if you have any advice about how you keep your pumpkins I would love to hear it.
I have a younger friend (she is 24), and she has been challenging me with scriptures and what they mean to me over the past couple of weeks. I am really enjoying this with her and digging into scriptures together.
Don’t forget about our new monthly link up…Remember that this is a once a month link up with a different topic each month.
This month’s topic is WORSHIP and what that means to you and how you live it.
Also you don’t need to link up if you don’t have a post on the topic, but you can leave your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you.
Have a blessed week my friends and may God lead and guide you in your everyday life.
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
