GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi everyone, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
How was your pre-Easter week? I am writing this on Saturday because we’ve got some of our church family here for lunch on Sunday and I don’t think I’ll get time after that.
It’s been a busy week but a good one. The children had singing lessons and have been working on what pieces they are going to perform at our first Eisteddfod this year. This is the first time they have sung at an Eisteddfod so they are a bit nervous but their older sister is going to accompany them so that should help a bit.
I was able to take one of my good friends out for lunch this week for her birthday and we had a really nice time. She brought her daughter and grandchildren along and another friend came as well. It is so nice to get together with our Christian sisters and encourage and love each other.
I gave her some socks for her birthday and I was really pleased with how they turned out. I didn’t get them finished until really late (early morn) the night before so I’ve started a pair for another friend for her birthday in May so I’ll be well prepared the next time.We have three granddaughters with birthdays in April and May so I need to get onto some for them as well. I was thinking of making them a cardigan each but I’m not sure if I’ll have time or not and I need to finish one I’m making for their mother (no 1 daughter) as well. I usually knit after tea and I really miss it if I don’t get the time then, it finishes the evening off nicely.
The summer vegetable garden is finishing off and the zucchinis have slowed down but I’m still getting a few each week. I was blessed with another load of tomatoes this week and I’ve got some dehydrating at the moment along with some garlic that I had already harvested. The kitchen sort of smells like pizza :-).
My husband and our no 2 daughter picked nearly 100 kgs of apples last week from road side trees. That’s the next job I’ll need to get into and if I do a load each day or so I should get them done easily before they rot.
We had an awesome Good Friday service yesterday and an absolutely amazing sermon from our minister. He definitely didn’t pull any punches as to what Jesus did for us and the strong reminder that we are in a battle and that Jesus came to deliver us from the tyranny of the devil.
We all fall short and that gives the devil claim over us, we are sinners and we have guilt and that’s his no 1 weapon. There is one man in history over who the devil has no claim whatsoever. Jesus never gave in, he never sinned and he took the judgement of our sin and set us free.
Okay onto our link up…

It is so nice to get back to the top three after a couple weeks of extremely slow internet. Thank you everyone for linking up and I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Tomorrow as I said before we’ve got some church family here for a BBQ lunch which we’re all looking forward too. Our no 1 son is away for Easter but he’ll be back late Monday night.
This coming week is technically school holidays but we do have a piano lesson and we will keep schooling as well. I’m hoping I can catch up with my friend and do our Bible study while the children play and we’ve got visitors for lunch next Sunday as well.
Lots of cooking and fellowshipping this week, but that’s good.
May our risen Lord come to you and give you the peace and knowledge of your redemption through Him.
Have a great week!!!

I had to look up “Eisteddfod”. 🙂 Sounds like a fun thing to do! I’m sure your children will do well!
