GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi there all! and welcome back to our weekly link up. How have you all been?
It’s been a quieter week here, what with no bible study due to school holidays and no music lessons or pottery classes to attend. We probably find it a bit boring really, because we miss the studies and classes. I must admit though it’s nice not to have to be in town really early on Saturday for piano lessons, that sleep in was nice this weekend.
As I said last week our no 1 son came home on Tuesday and it’s really nice to have him back. We enjoy his company and also enjoy hearing about all that he has been up to.
I’ve been harvesting more vegetables and I’m pleased with that head of broccoli. Some of the cauliflowers are still blowing out but they still taste great and we are enjoying them. I’ve been thinking a lot about getting my spinning wheel going again and it’s getting closer each day. Only problem is finding the time and when I’ve got time I’ve got knitting I want to finish. Oh well it’ll happen.A friend has given us a couple of books to read and we started this one with the children but it was a bit too graphic for them. It talks about the natives in Papua New Guinea before the missionaries arrived and then as they arrived. It’s a fascinating book and I’m enjoying it.I haven’t read a full book in ages and I’m on a challenge with our no 1 daughter to finish this before she finishes her book, I’m hopefully winning (not that it’s a competition 😉 more of an encouragement really).
We have been reading another book with the children titled Trials and Triumphs which is a lot of little stories from church history. We are all enjoying this book and it is opening our eyes to what persecution really is.
The weekend was busy what with an 18th birthday party in Warrambool on Saturday night and lunch with friends on Sunday. Fellowship is always good and enjoyable and encouraging. It’s good to catch up with friends that we haven’t seen for a while and hear how God is working in their lives.
Well that was our week, not very exciting I’m sorry. Back to normal next week.
Okay onto our link up…
Our top three this week were… A Cold and Graceless Way? by Maidservants of Christ How to Keep Homemade Bread Fresh – My Little Secret by Our Simple HomesteadApple Slab Pie by Marilyns Treats
Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up and supporting our blog.
DUE TO A WEDDING NEXT WEEKEND I WON’T BE ABLE TO DO NEXT WEEK’S LINK UP SO I’LL BE KEEPING THIS ONE OPEN FOR 2 WEEKS, SEE YOU THEN.
As I said, this week is back to normal and our Church is starting a new Bible Study for the next 4 weeks called One to One. It sounds interesting and challenging.
We’ve got a wedding this coming weekend so that’ll be nice so we’ll have music lessons earlier in the week.
We’re preparing our spring vegetable garden area and my husband is getting the ground ready to plant potatoes. It’s still very wet out and hopefully we can get them in earlier this year. My raised beds are drying out but the ground around them is still under water and it’s really boggy. This makes it difficult to get around but it is slowly drying out.
The weather is warming up to and it’s nice for a change but hopefully it won’t happen too quickly. Ha we are never happy with the weather – it’s either too hot or too cold or too wet or too dry…
So I’ll see you all in 2 weeks, there will be no Good Morning Mondays Link Up next week. I’ll be looking forward to hearing how you all are.
God bless you all.
Keep on keeping on my friends…
Have a great week!!!
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 my friends xxxx

I love reading missionary biographies, and I did enjoy Lords of the Earth, but agree with you that some of the more graphic descriptions were tough to take — although they paint a real picture of what pioneer missionaries face. My youngest just finished reading Through Gates of Splendor by Elisabeth Elliot for his schooling — another good missionary bio.
Enjoy the wedding celebration! We’ll look forward to hearing about it!
Hey there Michele, thanks for the missionary book ideas, I’ll look them out for our children. Thank you.
Hi!! Have you tried Foxes Book of Martyrs??? It is an amazing read, especially in the old English. There’s an app that has it on Android in the Google play store too for free.

Sometimes boring is good. 🙂 I was hoping to have a quiet day today, but someone needed to talk at lunch, so I’ll be going out after all. And might as well get my hair cut while I’m out. Etc, etc. ha. Hope your week goes well, Terri!
