Mondays are for Grace


"A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul,...."
Proverbs 13:19

This weekend our family received news that the sabbatical grant our church applied for has been granted! This means we are to be given an all-expense-paid trip to Scotland next summer for six weeks! Can you believe it?! We hardly can. This is a dream come true, something we could never have done on our own. I'm so glad we have a year to think about and plan for this special trip.

I'm new to your blog, found you I think through Brenda! And your list of Downton Abbey(ish) reading material.

This is wonderful news, and I rejoice with you.

Ohhhhhh how thrilling! I'm so excited for you. I know how much you have wanted to go back there again. But, oh - why couldn't it have been New Zealand. ;o)

How exciting for you all Heather. The children must be looking forward to it already, does Rachel remember her time there?
I look forward to hearing your plans - is it just Scotland or will you be venturing further south?

Someday, we'll get our turn unless the Lord returns, then I won't care.
What will you be doing whilst you are there?

How wonderful! You will love Scotland, it is so beautiful and the people so lovely. I have an especially soft spot for the Highlands and would love to live there. For now I'm content with visiting ;o)
