Welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays. The weather here has been just beautiful, although dry. Cool mornings and lovely warm spring days. It is hard not to be happy with the sun shining.
Have you ever just sat back and thought about how blessed you are. Some days I find it overwhelming when I think of how blessed I am.
What position would I be in if I didn’t have a strong, caring and loving husband. I would probably still be in hospital in a rehab unit with my family visiting ocassionally, but because God has blessed me I am able to be home with my family and they are caring for me to the best of their abilities.
I have wonderful children and they are doing their best to keep the house running and do their school work and chores.
None of us are perfect (that’s for sure) and we do have squabbles and arguments and disappointments, but God’s grace and love is always there and repentence and forgiveness are an important part of our days.
Once again I am blessed by their forgiveness and their help.
We have been having a very dry winter and spring so far and it has been quite concerning. My husband was going to sow summer feed but it was just too hard and dry, which is just not normal for our area. We have really needed rain and God blessed us with over an inch on Friday night. We had a massive thunderstorm during the night and then it just poured. Our back verandah flooded and all the boots were filled with water and the back lawn was underwater. This is definitely a season changer for us and now we can go ahead with planting our vegetables with a little more enthusiasm.
I have sent out the invitations for my husbands birthday party and they ended up looking good. We seem to be a party family, and we are due to have another one mid next year for our No 1 son’s 21st birthday. At his 18th he had a BBQ and a clay bird shoot, even most of the ladies had a go, now I have my own shotgun and when we can we enjoy this sport.
We spent Saturday with our son-in-law and daughter and their beautiful children. The children are growing so quickly and we always have a lot of laughs together.
On Sunday we worshiped with another congregation and then enjoyed a lovely lunch together. There were quite a few of us who managed to go and the fellowship was very enjoyable.
I must admit that Mondays are a very slow day for me and I need to spend quite a bit of it with my leg up to reduce the swelling from my getting about over the weekend, but it is well and truly worth it.
What have you been up to this past week, do you feel God’s blessings around you?? Do you need to refocus your thoughts onto God instead of your burdens???
Okay onto our link up…

I managed to read a few posts and I definitely enjoyed them. I pray that you will continue to link up and share with us all.
I have another relatively quiet week this week, although we have our bible study on Tuesday night.
We have been busy planting vegetable seedlings in the aquaponics and now we have a heap of tomato plants to put in the ground. I’m good at directing and encouraging from the sidelines (on my gopher), and my husband and the children do a great job planting. We are now praying for a good tomato growing season, which would be almost a first since we came here.
My husband has cut our grass hay and now he is getting ready to cut our oat and wheat crop. It is looking really good and we hope to get a heap of small bales from this to feed our stock over the summer.
Have a blessed week and may you feel God’s love surrounding you.
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 to you all my dear friends. xxxx
