Hey there everyone, it’s Monday so it’s time for our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
Is anyone else amazed at how quickly each week is passing??? I had a lovely week at home which was great. We achieved some school and music practice.
It was that wet and cold on Thursday that my husband stayed home and had a lego day with our son. They are building a header out of the lego they have. It’s always great when Dad is home for the day. These types of days only happen a few times a year, when it is wet and cold and when it is too hot.
We were lent the DVD of War Room and I think our lives have been changed. What an awesome movie and with such powerful lessons for us. So I was so excited to get these two books in the mail this week. I have started on Fervent and I’ve read a chapter and a half and already I am enjoying it. I feel like I am sitting in the lounge room talking with this author, just amazing and so practical. Saturday morning we went to town for our music lessons, even though it is school holidays here, we missed a lesson last week. We have heaps of work to do on the technical side in the next few weeks but I think we are up to the challenge.
Then we caught up with my sister-in-law who has come up from Melbourne for a few days to visit her parents. We had a lovely brunch together and she is a favourite amongst our children.
My husband is busy preparing an area for our fruit trees which are arriving this coming week. It is pretty boggy out in the paddock but he is going to raise up some beds to plant the trees in. We have 30 trees coming in all – 10 apples, 10 nectarines and 10 peaches. Within these there are 2 different varieties of each tree. Next year we will hopefully get another 30 or so and have fruiting happening over a long period of time, very exciting.
Okay onto our link up…

There we are and thanks for linking up everyone, I hope you were blessed. There always seems such a variety to have a look at and that is just wonderful, thank you.
This coming week is another week at home for me – yay. We aren’t taking school holidays so we will be doing heaps of school and heaps of scales practice, which we all love (not), but we will persevere.
My husband started his men’s course last week and has been blessed by the men participating and their enthusiasm. It is so wonderful to see him reaching out to other men and using what God has taught him to help others.
We are seeing so many marriages collapsing, and when they are Christian it is even harder to watch. I guess we, like so many others are passionate about marriage and about helping others see how good it can be if you have God as the head.
I mentioned last week about a younger friend and I going through scripture together. We do this over text messaging but I am so blessed by it. I feel that finally God has brought a younger woman for me to share my heart with. This young woman is so amazing and challenges me each week to dig deeper into scripture to really see what it means. God’s word is so exciting and full of some many nuggets of wisdom.
Our children have really enjoyed watching War Room also, so this week I bought them both journals and we are encouraging them to write down their prayers each day. It is so exciting.
I have finished the cardigan I made for our 2nd granddaughter so I am going to start working on one for our no 1 son who is away working at the moment. I am half way through the back but it is in 14 ply so it won’t take too long.
We are blessed with how this young man is growing in the Lord while he is away. Each day is a challenge for him to delve deeper into what God is saying to him. We are having some amazing late night conversations with him and are growing even closer together.
So what has God been challenging you with lately???
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 xxxx
