GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP

Hi everyone, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.

What sort of week have you all had? Has it been productive, quiet, running around busy??? I’d love to hear from you all.
Our latest harvest
 We’ve had a good week and we’ve been busy in the raised vegetable gardens. Earlier in the week our no 2 son helped me and we pulled out and harvested all the capsicum plants to make way for our onion seedlings which we planted later in the week. We had a fantastic capsicum crop this year with plenty dehydrated and put away for the coming winter months.
I think that we planted over 100 onions with half being white and the other half brown. I’m excited about this and it’ll be very important to keep the weed growth to a minimum.

Seedlings planted and netted to keep the magpies away.
We had singing lessons this week and the children have chosen their pieces for the local eisteddfod in June. They haven’t sung at an eisteddfod before so they are a bit nervous, there isn’t a piano to hide behind when you just sing. They are doing really well though and it’ll really help their confidence.
We’ve been doing school and music practice as well this week, it’s really been just a normal every day week until we got to the weekend.
On Friday night we all went up and visited our son-in-law, daughter and their children for our oldest granddaughters 5th birthday. It was great fun and good to see them all again. The other grandparents and aunts and uncle were there as well so it was a big family do. It’s so nice that we can all come together and enjoy our fellowship.
We stayed one night and came home on Saturday afternoon. It was a definite highlight of our week.
 Onto our link up…
Our top three this week were…
God’s Call: The Lord Equips by Growing Together in Grace and Knowledge
Thank you for linking up last week and I look forward to seeing you again this week.
 This coming week is just like the last one with music lessons and we do have our book group this week so that’ll be nice. We’ve had a long break due to Easter and school holidays so it’ll be great to get together again.
I hope to catch up with my friend again this week, but we’ll have to see how that goes.
It’s been a hard week for a couple of our married friends with the falling apart of their marriages. We need to keep vigilant and aware that satan wants to destroy Christian marriages.
I was told of some excellent marriage counselling advice – men you are called to love your wives and wives we are called to submit to our husbands. I know that is not a “modern” way of thinking but it is Biblical truth and we need to stand on that and not be part of the world’s thinking.
On that note I pray that you all  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 my friends xxxx

  1. Last week was a mixture of extra activities, mostly involving interacting with other people, and quiet times. I had a few extra projects on hand I was chipping away at as well. I was very tired yesterday (Saturday) and took a long nap. 🙂

    1. Hi Mary, sounds like you are busy with lots of different things and the nap sounds really nice too. Some days I find I need one and then I’m right, possibly Monday is the hardest after busy weekends. Have a great weekend. Blessings

  2. I love big family gatherings as well. My family got together last Saturday night, and we got to introduce our new grandbaby to the clan! It was so fun seeing how excited everyone gets to have another baby in the family.

  3. It’s been busy here, too. It seems that since both of us “retired” from full time Christian ministry we are busier than ever! 🙂 Thinking about your friends’ marriages, my husband and I have been going through a devotional before we go to bed called “Sweethearts for a Lifetime” by Wayne & Carol Mack. It’s very biblical and talks about the hedges we need to keep in place around our marriages and much more. Thanks for featuring my post from last week and for hosting each week. Blessings!

    1. Hey there Donna, I can only imagine how busy you are with your heart for christian marriages, even part time. That devotional book sounds great, I’m going to try and get it and go through it with my husband. Thanks and blessings

  4. Hello!

    You are correct that Satan wishes to destroy our marriages! I couldn’t have seen this forty years ago, but we should follow the Lord’s Word for husbands to live their wives and for wives to obey their husbands. Many problems occur when these aren’t being followed/done. And as difficult as it has been for me, I honestly want to continue working on obeying my husband.

    I have a question, please: what are your top three at the bottom of your blog? Did you read all three this week? Thank you for taking the time to do your blog!

    Your Tennessee friend!

    1. Hi there Myra, it’s so good to hear from you. I appreciate your comments about marriage and your desire to submit to your husband even through difficulties, thank you for that. The top three are the most viewed posts and I must admit I have been a bit slack lately with reading them all, have you found any issues with them?? Thank you and blessings
