big weekend

What a weekend! Doesn't come anywhere near our trip to Swansea, but still a big weekend with lots going on.

It was our church anniversary - five years! Yeah, I know that doesn't sound like much when compared to other churches that have been around forever, but we're proud of it. Some pretty rough stuff happenned along the way, but we still made it to five years in (almost) one piece. Yay.

That kind of event has to be celebrated, so we devoted two days to the affair, beginning yesterday afternoon with a bush dance. We danced the day away before enjoying a meal and slide show together. (For once I took real homecooked food instead of ducking over to the supermarket for last minute sausage rolls - sweet potato frittata, which provided variety in a table full of shepherd's pie!)

This morning we sang praise and thanks to God for getting us this far, built a pile of stones to remind ourselves of his goodness, and thought about the importance of moving forward. Then we ate cake! Shaped-like-a-church cake. Yummo. And played games like pass the parcel and team pictionary. And ate more cake. It was good. Exhausting, but good.

Now I just need another weekend to recover!
It's a good thing that anniversaries only happen once a year!

I don't think I've ever seen a "shaped-like-a-Church-cake" before! I'm a little stunned to think that its the 5th anniversary already - that seems to have raced by. You've certainly had a lot happen within that congregation in that time.
