Welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays.  What’s been happening in your life this past week??

I have made biscuits and soap and helped my husband around the farm. Making soap and doing some baking was something I really wanted to mark off my list this week.

No 2 daughter and no 2 son got their results from the piano exams they did and they both got A’s or Honors.  This is great and they are both thrilled with the results and their certificates.

No 2 daughter got three firsts at the local show for her baking and No 1 son did very well with his shearing, placing 2nd in the intermediate group and getting Best Local Shearer.  Here he is with his ribbons


This coming week I want to start on some Christmas gifts and I am excited about this.  I have been blessed by some of the posts that I have found about home made gifts, so thank you everyone.

So our top three posts last week were…

My personal favourite is….


Please pray for Taylor McGinnis from So Much At Home

I want to encourage everyone to pop over and have a read about what Taylor is going through and take the time to pray for her and her family.  Thank you to Chris for sharing this with us and giving us the opportunity to pray for Taylor.

This really is the season to be flat out and hectic, trying to get everything finished before Christmas.  I know that I am starting to feel the pressure building, but I am trying to keep it down.  I want to encourage you all to stay calm and not get caught up in all the pressure and stress around us.

I want to remember to love those around me, care for those who have no one or are sick.  We should increase our prayer time and remember those who come to mind in our prayers.

I want to thank everyone who linked up and also to everyone who looked at the other posts.  I cannot express how this makes me feel, how happy and joyful I am that we are able to encourage each other in our daily struggles and joys.

So let’s get the link up started, please link up any posts that relate to God and christian living – especially encouraging or challenging posts, also recipes, crafts, gardening or homesteading as you call it in America and just plain old country living here in Australia.

  1. Thank you for inviting me. It’s sometimes very lonely out here on the homestead. There are very few other people around, and the ones that are aren’t Christian–I may just have found a new friend. I’m off to explore the site now 🙂
    Thank you for hosting.

    1. Yes it is hard when you live a long way from nowhere. We live about 43km from our larger town (a small town 12 kms away) so I am finding this blogging thing a great way to meet people and come together to encourage and share with each other. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to getting to know you better. Blessings

  2. Thank you so much for featuring Taylor on Good Morning Mondays! I pray God will bless you in abundantly. It means a lot to know people care and are praying.
    God bless, dear friend.
    So Much At Home
