GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP

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

How was your week?? Ours started out slow and gradually built up a bit. We had the first couple of days at home which was nice, and then our no 2 son had his piano lesson on Wednesday night before our Bible Study.

Thursday the ladies and I met for a Days 4 Girls sewing morning and then we had our book group in the afternoon.

Our no 1 son left for NSW on Wednesday so on Tuesday night I served him up one of his favourite dishes, bolognaise sauce with sourdough noodles.These noodles are so easy to make and are delicious too. Mine always look fairly rustic and home made but taste doesn’t always equal looks.  Anyway we all enjoyed it!!

My husband and our no 2 son have been working on a present for a friends birthday yesterday.  These friends have bought a property and are going to use it as a ministerial retreat for missionaries or pastors who need to have some quiet, regroup time. They have a lovely property with beautiful views. So we decided that we would do a name plaque. Our no 2 son cut out the rose and then my husband worked at putting it all together, carving out the lettering and finishing it up. I think they did a fantastic job and our friends were as pleased as punch, which is all the thanks we needed. What a blessing it is to give.

We’re still waiting for our next grandbaby to be born and because I know the grandchildren are coming soon I did some baking and made some Anzac biscuits, these are easy and a favourite. So we are all ready now. It’s been a week of anticipation really.It’s been very wet here lately and cold so we are under water here at the moment. It is boggy and muddy, which is normal for this time of the year but the winter started out dry.

We’ve got church tonight instead of this morning due to a power cut so I’ve made a cake and bread rolls to have with the fellowship tea to follow. My husband’s Father’s class is having it’s graduation ceremony so another group of men who have gone from being good fathers to great fathers. We need to pray for our men that they would be strong and courageous to stand up again the enemy’s attack on their position in the family.

Okay my friends, onto the link up…

Thank you everyone for stopping by, linking up and sharing your thoughts and comments with other like minded bloggers.

This coming weeks activities will all depend on when our new grandchild is born and when the other grandchildren are coming. Most of what I have planned can wait and we can have fun with the children. They are a pleasure to look after and there’s always fun and laughter.

We do have our monthly Women’s Mission Meeting which would be good to get to because a missionary friend is giving her testimony, so I’d like to hear that. Apart from that and our Bible study on Wednesday night there isn’t much on this week. Most likely piano lessons on Saturday morning and then church on Sunday.

I found some great knitting ideas for the grandchildren for Christmas so I might get started on them this week because I’m nearly finished my other projects. These patterns are good because I can use my left over yarn from other items that I’ve knitted.

All right my friends, I hope this finds you well and blessed. I pray that God is working in your lives and that you feel His hand on you.

God bless xxxx

  1. I love the name plaque. What a beautiful gift for the property, which will be a beautiful gift to so many to restore themselves in the Lord. Can’t wait to hear about the birth of that new grandbaby soon! I know you are all so excited.

    1. Thank you so much Lisa and you are so right. We’ve had our new grandbaby but I need to wait until they announce it on their instagram, suffice to say it’s very exciting and we are feeling really blessed. Blessings. xxx
