GOOD MORNING MONDAYS #29

Hey there, welcome to another Good Morning Mondays. It is great to be back and I am looking forward to seeing what you have to link up this week.

I actually got all the posts read before Sunday this week and I enjoyed them all.

What have I been up to this past week you ask?? (well maybe not, but I will tell).

Yay I got my mending done, that was until Friday when I brought in some washing and noticed a couple of buttons missing, but my husband now has work pants without holes. I have a couple pairs of my sons jeans to mend but I want to see if they fit him still before I make the effort. If not I will use them for patches, or rework them into a skirt for my daughter.

Piano practice is still in full swing and there are only 4 lessons left until the Eisteddfod, and they are both coming along nicely.

We had Mr H and his wife for tea on Thursday night. They were on their way back from having more scans and it was lovely that they could stop in and join us. They don’t have any results yet and are waiting for the specialist to return to work after his wife had a baby.

Mr H could really give us insight into how he feels about eternal life and the fact that he could be there before he planned. It was wonderful to hear him talk to our children about how God has a plan and how he doesn’t fear death and that God has him and all of us in His hands.

Saturday we went to the Lake Goldsmith Steam Rally. This rally is held twice a year and we try to get to both but usually one is all we can manage. If you are a steam buff or love old stuff, this is the place for you.  It is noisy and smelly and sometimes muddy but it is a great time for all.

This is one of the motors and it actually puffed real smoke rings, they were amazing, but I couldn’t get a photo of them, sorry.

They have a pond and the Geelong Model Boat Club bring handmade powered boats to run on the water and they give children the opportunity to have a go. Of course our younger two were there and were thrilled to be old enough to try.

I just enjoy sitting and watching everything going on around me, but my favourite would have to be the old milking displays and the separators and butter churns.

Here is a display of old accordians, there were button, piano and concertinas, and if you hung around long enough they would play them for you.

A good time was had by all.

Our Sunday morning bible study has started again and it was nice to get this going and get back into some corporate study.

Now onto our linkup.

Our top three this week were….

and my favourite…thmb553dfbd68c2dfA God Like You by Candace Jo at Hope in the Healing

I especially enjoyed the clip of the marines singing “These are the Days of Elijah” – amazing.

Thank you all for linking up and I appreciate every one of you and the fact that you take the time to link up blesses me abundantly.

We have bible study this Tuesday night, this is our Revelation study that has been on hold over Easter. We are looking forward to it.

We are having a sewing get together this week on Thursday afternoon, which will be great. We haven’t had one for quite a few weeks due to other commitments so it will be wonderful to catch up again with our friends.

Mothers day is on this Sunday so I think we will have my husbands parents to lunch so that we can honour her motherhood.

What have you got on this week?

I hope that you all have a great week and that God blesses you as you live your life committed to Him.

Blessings to you all.
