Man this time the challenge was more challenging than last time!
Ok so some other facts I want to include to remember with this post...

* The books at the tip were in a little room I found there where there is really good stuff that never actually makes it to the tip pile but the workers keep them aside. Anyone can come through at any time and take anything. Wow! All those books! What a blessing! And all in perfect condition!

* Ikea: we went down one arvo to see if we could pick up a bed :( but they sold the last one that day. Teach me to not ring first! The kids shopped the whole way with us + really enjoyed it. When we got to the end we let them go inside the kids area (they were the only ones there) and they loved diving into the ball pit especially! We sat and watched them and they had a play for about a half an hour and they enjoyed it so much. We went to mum and dad's and had dinner afterwards. Love the late closing times Ikea has. Makes an arvo trip down there worthwhile.

* Zippi has had one day sleep + part of one night's sleep in her new big bed (which we were blessed to get from Pete and Tiff when we went to hang out with them recently in Newcastle. So lovely of them to keep it for Zippi and it's special since it used to be little Lus'.) Brett painted the little sleigh bed white + we re-did Stass' room so it is now the girls' room. I might do a separate post another time showing before and after shots and how it is changed...maybe. So who knows how long it will take but over time, the girls will be in together. So sweet. Stass is sooooooooo excited!

Ok, well hope you might consider joining in the Two Words challenge with me! Thanks to all of you who joined in the first time. Hope you had fun!

Here is the linky box for you to add your name to once you have done your own Two Words post on your blog.



10 things I am thankful for today:

1. Hanging out with the Ab + Tob last night + having such great fellowship
2. Yahweh's amazing forgiveness!
3. Learning about Hebrew Roots + listening to the voice of God
4. Even though the masked lapwing is fiercely protecting the backyard because of the eggs, we have the undercover area where the kids can still go and play safely
5. Brett's prayerful leadership which I respect so much! So glad to have such an amazing companion to walk with on this journey of life. Love that I can share ideas, thoughts, new things with him + he prays about them + discusses them with me. It is a blessing beyond words.
6. Hearing Anth's voice on the phone the other night. Ah my friend, miss you so much.
7. The ministries of Eddie Chumney, Jim Staley + others as I learn. These have been such great places to visit + learn from.
8. Sunny weather
9. The boys having a filling each with NO needles! What a great dentist! He made them so at ease as they had their first 'work' done + the boys + I had a date lunch to celebrate.
10. A real move of the Holy Spirit on Sunday at church

Oh and if you are wondering how to vote this weekend + what the parties really stand for, you might want to check out THIS SITE HERE called Australia votes. When the home page opens up, look on the right hand side of the screen and there is a box with a number of topics listed. Each party was asked for their stance on issues such as justice, public christianity and the value of life. I'm not much of a political kind of person but I think it is important that if we are going to vote, that we vote with an informed conscience.

Well, many blessings to you + yours.
Love Lus x

Squeee the girls room is so cute Stass must be so proud. Lani is very keen to have Sabi in her room, which will happen, one day, when we get the room built. Our kids love ikea and it's special for me too, it's were I went into labour with Sabrina.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the “Next Blog” button in the Nav Bar at the top of my blogspot blog. I occasionally just check out other blogs to see what others are doing.
