HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!

Today is Australia Day. Most Australians will celebrate to commemorate the landing of the First Fleet in Sydney Cove on January 26th, 1788. It was originally called "First Landing Day". Governor Macquarie declared it a holiday in 1818.

We have Aussie flags everywhere today: on our front door, in our vans' window and on the kiddies' trampoline. Unlike some people here, we do not paint our faces, but we may do our grandchildrens' if they want...

Today we have a National Holiday and we will join hundreds of Aussies in partaking of our greatest fun family activity: the Aussie barbie or BBQ So I will be joining my sister in our kitchen shortly and make up a giant bowl of salad to go with our marinated steaks and sausages.

We will be pausing to thank the LORD for such a wonderful country and for praying for our Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull.

To all Aussies reading today: Happy Australia Day from our home to yours!

Blessings, Glenys

Remember them which have the rule over you, Hebrews 13:7a..
