Another week gone by and another week closer to spring, summer and then Christmas and the end of the year.
Where is is going, into the past and we can’t slow it down no matter how hard we try. So let’s just live our lives one day at a time with our eyes on the Lord.
Welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays. It is definitely winter here and it has been cold this past week. Now we don’t get snow here but the puddles outside were frozen over this week.
We have had a nice week at home and we have really been working on our music and school. No 2 son is really moving along with his reading and this is just wonderful. I think teaching children to read is one of the hardest things, but when they finally get it, it is wonderful. A whole new world of books is opened up to them.
I have been thinking a lot about death this week and I suppose this comes from the father at church who passed away. I was unable to make it to the funeral as No 2 son wasn’t well (he does have some chesty cough issues in this weather). My husband went and the church was over full, about 600 people attended. He meant a lot to a lot of people that was for sure, but I suppose my husband and I were saddened by the lack of God mentioned in his obituary.
What do we want to be remembered for, for our ability to play sports the best, or our need/desire to bring our children up in the ways of God. Mmm it has definitely had me thinking.
We were able to face time with some friends in Canada this week and that was wonderful. They came over here over 2 years ago on a pastors exchange and spent 6 months with our congregation. Finally we had someone else at church who home schooled. We got very close and had a wonderful time together. My husband tries to talk with the husband every couple of months and loves discussing theological issues. I haven’t talked to my friend (his wife) for ages so it was nice to touch base again. We have made a decision to face time very shortly just the two of us to catch up on each others lives. For this I am grateful for technology, sometimes I am not.
I am glad for technology so that I can write this post and keep in contact with all of you who link up here each Monday. It brings a smile to my face to know that you care enough to stop by.
So without any further ado, onto our linkup.
Our top five posts this week were…
3 Reasons You Should make Your Bed Everyday by Kelly at The Journey of a Steward
And my favourite was….Helping My Child Through Grief by Aimee at A Work of Grace
Thank you everyone for taking the time to stop by. It is such a blessing and I enjoy reading what I can.
This week we are hopefully going to be attending a new course being run at our church called Christianity 101. This is going to be run every Monday night for 6 weeks and is for those people who want to know more about the Bible. We are hoping to attend to support those running it and we hopefully one of our friends will be attending and again you never know what we will learn.
We are off to Melbourne over the weekend for a family seminar, and character building course for our children. We haven’t been to one of these for quite a few years so it will be wonderful to see who is there and meet up with some old friends and hopefully make some new.
Sunday is music exam day, it is unfortunate it is Sunday but it is usually before or after worship which is good.
I have beanies to knit for the granddaughters and I really need to start on these this week. I use a wool that knits up like a fair isle pattern and they normally are really nice.
Otherwise, it is the usual stuff this week, and I really like the usual stuff, staying home, especially when it is cold.
I look forward to hearing from you all again this week and I pray that your days are blessed.
Love to you all my friends. xxxx
