Hello everyone, welcome back to Good Morning Mondays. Welcome to the New Year. I am excited to see what God has for us in 2015 and where He is going to lead us.
We had a lovely New Years Eve get together with about 30 people from our church, mainly older couples. We really enjoy getting together with these people and sharing our hearts and lives with them. They are always interested in the children and what we are doing and we like to give them the best meal we can because we love blessing them.
My husband smoked some pork and beef roasts. They were in the smoker for about 12 hours each and they were absolutely delicious and melt in the mouth.
They were all gone before midnight so we had it all cleaned up and were relaxing on the couch when the clocked ticked over into 2015, so it was very relaxing.
I must admit since then I have been a bit whacked and I am taking some time to catch up and get ready to start our new school year in a week. I have got some new planners from a couple of wonderful blogs and I am looking at which one is going to help me be organised.
Our No 1 daughter, son-in-law and granddaughters have headed off on their grand adventure and you will be able to follow their journey here. They are heading to the outback of Australia by the end of January and my daughter has a humorous way of writing, so the journey will not be boring. We will miss them while they are gone but 8 weeks is only a short period of the year and they should have a great time, see heaps and learn heaps.
We went to a wedding yesterday and had an enjoyable time. It was the second time round for both and we pray that God will bless them as they blend their families together and learn to live with each other. Weddings always make me remember my own and just how much I love my husband and how blessed I feel.
Now onto Good Morning Mondays.
