GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi there all, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
I’m back again which shows that I haven’t mucked up the internet again, although I haven’t got it totally working right. I think we may need to update some of our hardware and that’s a bit scary but I guess we’ll work it out.
Althought it is windy and chilly today we have been having some awesome spring days with cool mornings and the most beautiful sunshiny days. It makes you just want to get out and dig in the garden. Our seedlings are coming along and we are just days away from planting them out. We have another couple of frosts due this week so we are just hanging off on the tomatoes at the moment.
My amazing husband has corn coming up already and the potatoes he planted earlier in the hay are sprouting nicely as well. When we have a frost now it’s not too severe so it doesn’t get up on the raised beds or on the bales of hay which is good.
The grass has been growing too, very quickly and my husband has put our youngest son onto the mowing job. He just loves using the rider mower and is keen to keep at it. The yard is looking so much nicer now that it has been mowed too.
The chooks have been laying heaps of eggs and I finally got around to making pickled eggs. They are completed and in the jar in the fridge maturing for another few days and I’m quietly excited to taste them.We’ve had a good week, although they are passing very quickly. We had book group and had read about Anna Zwingli this past week and Katie Luther the fortnight before. Both women have inspired us and amazed us at their resilience and dedication to their marriages and families. They both had generous and caring hearts which have encouraged me to try and be likewise.
We also met for sewing as well and are well over half way to our goal of 100 kits. I’m not sure if we’ll make the goal by the end of the year but we are trying. We enjoy meeting when we can, there is lots of laughter and Godly encouragement.
The children had their Bible Study on Friday afternoon as well and they enjoyed that. Our minister and family are back from their long service leave so this coming week our Bible Study will start again. Music lessons are back on and our youngest son is busy preparing for his exam in a months time.
I also got to meet with my friend this week and we have been working our way through Psalm 119. We’ve only gotten through 2 verses and that has led us to deep conversations on what God’s statutes are, interesting and good.
Okay onto our link up…
Our top three this week were…

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
This coming week is upon us and we’ve got Bible Studies and school and piano practice and we’ve got work and gardening, so a busy week.
My husband is busy building a hand weeding tool so I’m excited to see that finished this week and I’m sure he will be keen to use it too, so look out weeds.
What’s happening in your part of the world at the moment??? Are you planting or preparing for winter???
I have challenged my self to memorise Psalm 119 so I will be working on that. Psalm 119:11 has led me to memorise more. It says: I have hid Your word in my heart that I might not sin against thee.
That really inspired me to have God’s word right there so when I’m having those thoughts or conversations in my head that aren’t very nice I can stop and quote scripture, that’s my theory and I’m challenged to do it. As wives and mothers there are times when those mundane tasks leave us with too much thinking time, and this is a great way to channel that time into God and not the world.
May you all be blessed this week as you seek God’s will for your days. xxx
