Me and Mine – February

I often leave our monthly Me and Mine photo to the last minute but with hubby being away working for the last week of this month, I managed to be a little more organised and remember to have some photos taken before he went away.

This month’s photos were taken at church, just after the morning service, before we headed off for lunch to celebrate Grandma’s birthday. Our church is somewhere where we feel very much part of a wider church family and the girls are always very much at home there. They know where the toys are – nowadays they make a beeline for the ‘room with the toys’ as soon as we walk in the door and when they do join us for the service, I always feel that they are very much welcomed.

Although I only became part of our church when I moved to the area ten years ago, Michael grew up in this church and his parents are both fairly active members as was hubby’s Nanna when she was alive. Now we have own our children coming along each week, making four generations of hubby’s family being part of the church family.

I love the fact that our children are as comfortable in our church as we are. It is where we got married; it is where Sophie was baptised and Jessica was welcomed into the church family as a tiny baby (having been baptised shortly after her birth in hospital). In the four walls of this building, we have worshipped together, we have prayed together, we have celebrated together and we have found hope, strength, comfort and welcome.

We have been missing hubby this week – although Daddy is not often home for bedtime, he is usually around in the mornings when the girls wake up and Jessica has asked to “see Daddy” most mornings although thankfully has been quite content to be told that Daddy is at work. We’ve chatted and seen Daddy via FaceTime which has been nice but we are all looking forward to him being back home and having proper family time together again soon!
