GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi there all, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
As you all know we’ve been waiting for our daughter to give birth to their fifth child, so this week we were on baby watch. We had our grandchildren for a few days so it’s been full on. They are great children and we really enjoy having them, but they really missed their Dad and Mum.
I can’t say yet whether it was a boy or girl (waiting on their birth announcement to go viral :-)) but the baby arrived after quite a wait on Friday night and we are thrilled with the new addition to our family.
I made two blankets for the baby, one for a boy and one for a girl, so of course one has been gifted and it gives me great pleasure to see the baby wrapped in it this morning at church. Here are the two blankets, both will be nice and warm.
So I guess anything else I have to say about the past week will fade into insignificance due to the birth, but what can I say, being a Grandma is such a wonderful thing and my husband and I take our roles very seriously. We are helping to lead and guide the next generation and we are keen to support and help our son-in-law and daughter do the best job they can. Actually they are doing an amazing job without us and we are blessed by their diligence to give God all the glory in all their decisions.
I have been down with a cold this past week so I’ve been a bit sluggish and the weather is so wet and cold at the moment. It’s that time of the year when we are really looking forward to the ground drying up and the start of Spring so that we can get into our garden and get the seasons vegetables growing.
It’ll be a little bit yet before that happens as the rain keeps coming. It’s a strange country we live in, we are having rain and cold, almost snowy weather and some of the country up north is dealing with a terrible drought. South of Sydney they are fighting bush fires all ready. It’s so hard to grasp.
To finish this week off here’s our granddaughter sitting so nicely waiting for her tea. She folds her hands and had to keep showing me her hands were folded – so cute.Okay that’s my news for the week, onto our link up.
Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up.
Well this coming should be back to normal mostly. My husband has been away for the weekend at a men’s conference and then he was due home tonight but their flights got cancelled, so I now have to wait until tomorrow to see him. I miss him heaps and I’m definitely looking forward to him getting home.
We’ve got the usual bible study, book group, Friday happenings and then our no 1 son and the lovely Christian young lady he is courting will be visiting next weekend, so that’s exciting.
I’m hoping that we can visit our son-in-law and daughter at some stage as my husband hasn’t met the new addition so I’m sure he’ll be keen to do that.
Our message this morning was about how we respond to God’s call on our life, what excuses do we give and it was very challenging.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Psalm 23:1-3
May you allow the Lord to lead you to a place of rest and restoration this week.
Bless you all my friends xxx
