|Happy Easter from Cheneycraft.BlogSpot.com|
Easter weekend fell at the end of the school holidays this year and this year the new term brings exams for all us!! Josh has AS exams this year, Jacob is taking some of his GCSEs a year early and Andy & I are both sitting the first exam for a diploma in Business Analysis.

However, we also found time to declutter/clean the house and spend time in the garden. I'll cover some of the house tasks in another blog soon, but this one is all about the garden.

One other tip to share with you is our homemade cloches. We have been using the lids from the seed trays over the seedlings when transplanted out, but we didn't have enough. This week when I was putting out the plastic recycling Andy noticed that the meat trays were almost the same size as the tray lids. So we had new cloches to use to protect our seedlings.

The Bible passage we are looking at this week is a reminder that God is pleased with us, just as we are, not for what we do. Believe and receive.
And without faith it is impossible to please God,
because anyone who comes to him
must believe that he exists
and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Our prayer as family this week is for all those who rely on their own grown goods to survive. We pray that this year's harvest will provide and that those of us with plenty will learn to share in better ways, to pay a fair price and realise the good things we have been given and not to take things for granted.
With God's blessings from my family to yours,
