Day Off

As you all know, Monday is our day off as a family. I think today was probably our best day off in a very very long time. We started the day off sleeping in late...which we hardly ever do, so we were lovingly woken up by Amanda at 7:30. After rolling slowly out of bed, we had a relaxed breakfast...well the kids did anyway, we don't really eat breakfast, and then we contemplated what we were going to do today.
By 9:00 we were on our way to 'Plant Land' - well at least I think that's what it's called. Anyway, that was such a wonderful place - they have a huge play area for the kids with all sorts of things for them to enjoy, the best part was that we didn't have to pay for them to play on anything. So the girls played and Glen and I enjoyed a late breakfast and coffee, while doing our favorite thing together - grappeling God's wonderful Word!!! The Lord blessed us so wonderfully, as we happened to get talking with another christian - Glen spoke to him about his daughter and got his number etc, anyway he left, but not before secretly paying for our bill! We were so very blessed at his act of love to us - total strangers. I think that this is the second or third time that it has happened to us since I have been married. Just another way our wonderful God shows us His love!
We had packed the girls bikes in the car in case we found a place for them to ride, and as we left 'Plant Land' we decided that their parking lot, which was really empty, would be a great place for them to enjoy, so that's exactly what they did - they had a really fantastic time!!
So after a relaxing morning, we did our weekly shop and made our way home. The afternoon was spent playing hide and seek, jumping on the trampoline and playing pictionary. Then we watched Charlotte's Web together, a recommended movie by the way, ate supper (Chicken Stir-fry) after the kids had their bath, then ended the day with 'Last thoughts' (our evening devotional time) which we spent looking at the sufferings of Christ. All in all we had a really blessed day, and I give all the praise and glory to our wonderful glorious worthy God! Thank you Father! (Sorry, no photos today)
