Anzac SlouchWith NSW on school holidays I spent the last two weeks up in Queensland. I stayed with my "Aussie family" the Gollans. Highlights include but were not limited to:

  • climbing Mt Beerwah
  • organising a garage sale
  • working with Josh
  • ANZAC Day service
  • riding with Tim
  • Jemimah's surprise 18th (which I didn't give away)
  • basketball training
  • general socialising
  • seeing Serge and Tanya from Ukraine
  • walking in the bush etc.

Tim and Judith are both much better bloggers than I (and I currently don't have a camera), so you can see pictures of the climb and pictures from the garage sale on their sites. Judith also drew a really good image of an Australian diggers hat. Click on the picture for a larger version on Jude's site.

I will be on the farm again for another month before heading south to Sydney. Many things happen in the course of a day/week. What I have cherished most over the last few weeks are the times I am free to spend with other people or alone with God. Relieving myself of clutter has been great. Not watching TV is great. People are important.

Jono, I'd just like to say that I really appreciate the last part of the last paragraph in this blog entry, about Life Necessities.

"Many things happen in the course of a day/week. What I have cherished most over the last few weeks are the times I am free to spend with other people or alone with God. Relieving myself of clutter has been great. Not watching TV is great. People are important, and our lives before God are of paramount importance. I can never stress this too much."

- Can I quote you in the future? Say on Facebook or mandyjoan.com ?

Praying for you.
See you soon for the football!
