Hi there everyone and welcome back to Good Morning Mondays.

What a week!! The weather has varied between cold and sunny and wet. The first couple days of the week contained frosty mornings but lovely sunny days, although still cold. Then by the latter half of the week it was back to wet and cold.20160617_150752

I have been hibernating inside with the children as much as possible but I did manage to walk most mornings this week.  Thursday I even managed to meet our postie and have a nice chat to him. He is a family friend and I don’t often get out there at the exact time that he drives up, so it was nice to see how he is going.

My husband had his last Good to Great night on Monday and hence he graduated with the other gentlemen on Friday night. We had a lovely meal together, each of us bringing something to share. Across the 5 families there were 22 children there, and most of them have known each other for quite a while.

My husband receiving his certificate and blessing.

We had a lovely older man who is a father, grandfather and great grandfather come and give us a short message on fatherhood and then he presented the certificates and then blessed each man. What a wonderful moment that was. We joke now that my husband has done the course he has finally made it :-). For all of us we are never going to make it until we get to Heaven but he now has some great tools to being a great father. In his children’s eyes he was already great so now he must be magnificent.

I made a new friendship with one of the wives who I hadn’t met before this course. My husband really connected with her husband so we are looking forward to getting to know them better in the coming months.

The children have been busy practicing their piano and their scales especially. They have another Eisteddfod this coming week and then their exams are at the end of July. They are both going so very well and we are very grateful to God for their giftings.

Okay so that’s about it for our quiet week at home, it was so nice. But now onto our link up…

Our top three posts this week were…

Thank you to all of you who stopped by and linked up, I hope you are blessed by this link up as much as I am.

This coming week is another almost home one until Thursday when the next Eisteddfod is on. The children are playing on Thursday and our son-in-law, daughter and their family are coming as well which is wonderful, our children are so excited.

Then that night we are all catching up with some friends of ours for a pizza tea. We did this last year and we had a wonderful time, we are all such great friends and it is so nice to all be together.

Friday morning our daughter is playing again so we will go down and then be home for the afternoon.

Then it’s music lessons again on Saturday morning and that is our last one for this term, then we have two weeks holidays.

We won’t be taking the holidays this term, we will keep on schooling and we will take a break in a month or so.

Now don’t forget about our new link up…wisdom search4

Remember that this is a once a month link up with a different topic each month.

This month’s topic is WORSHIP and what that means to you and how you live it.

Also you don’t need to link up if you don’t have a post on the topic, but you can leave your thoughts in the comments section.  I would love to hear from you.

Have a blessed week my friends and may God lead and guide you in your everyday life.

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 dear friends xxxx
