Favorite shop

This morning P:-) and I went to Bunnings, one of my favourite shops.

Bunnings hardware shop
Bunnings is a big hardware shop a few kilometres away. I love Bunnings. I always buy more than I have planned when I go in there. Today we went to buy hinges. P:-) is fixing my back door again.

Back door off its hinges
The door has been scraping very slightly on the floor and P:-) says it needs new hinges. He is waterproofing the bottom of the door while it is down.

We are going to miss church again. I can't really go with no back door. But we will make it to a church service next week. Next week is the christening of P:-)'s granddaughter L and there is a mass to go to first. I am not Catholic but I am sure God will still be there.

Miniature coriander garden

My miniature coriander garden is growing.

The plants seem a bit leggy, but a few more leaves and I am going to start using them and snipping some leaves off so I hope they will grow a bit thicker.

Thinking point

Early this morning I was watching  Hour of Power on the TV. The lady who was speaking stated that we can choose how we react to things that happen. I agree with this to a point. Everyone knows about the glass half full and the glass half empty.

But yesterday I found out that the husband of a friend had just died suddenly. He was 62. And I wondered if D, his wife,  would be able to choose how she reacted, and if so how much she could choose. She is a Christian with a large family and no doubt her family will come first in anything she does.

The top of my blog says Choose life. Life is wonderful.

I really believe we can choose our reactions to a lot of things, but I thought about D this morning and wondered what she would have thought of the message from Hour of Power today.
