About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

I got tagged to write some arb stuff about my life this week, so here goes ...
8 things I look forward to ...
~o~ Cuddles from my man in the evening when the house is quiet :-)
~o~ Kisses in the mornings from my girls when they wake up and run through to my room - even if I am still fast asleep!!
~o~ My upcoming visit with my sis to spend time with my mom in the US. I just can't wait!!! We are going to have some serious girl time ;-)
~o~  Tea with some really special girl-friends next Wednesday at 10am. I CANT wait to catch up with you Adeye.
~o~ I always look forward to a cup of something hot when I wake up in the mornings. Brett makes me a "surprise" each morning. I never know if it's going to be tea or coffee ...
~o~ I ALWAYS look forward to God's surprises, because whatever comes from Him is GOOD!!
~o~ A Starbucks latte!!! When is South Africa going to see the light!!!!!
~o~ Wearing my red Jimmy Choo's that I was blessed with 2 years ago. Whoever said that God doesn't want to bless His girls!!!
8 things I did yesterday ...
~o~ Had the most awesome study time around a passage in Ephesians! Wow - just love it when the "eyes of my heart" are opened to His truths. Freedom comes!
~o~ Looked after the "twinnies" with my mom-in-grace.
~o~ Had 2 of Tianna's cousins over for the evening.
~o~  Ate yummy Indian chicken Korma for supper.
~o~  Plopped on the couch with my feet up cuddling my hubby while we watched tv.
~o~ Ok - ate some left over Easter chocolates too ....
~o~ Remembered the fun weekend our little family had last week with friends in Haga Haga (some quaint little place near East London). It has the most beautiful wild beach and a cozy, warm lagoon.
~o~ Thought up some creative ways to teach my kids about the fruits of the Spirit.
8 things I wish I could do ...
~o~ Give my mom the opportunity to see her grand kiddies more often. I know how much she misses them.
~o~ Oh how I long for a photographic memory ....
~o~ Take my family to Disney World in Florida. Tianna has been praying about it for years.
~o~ Have a romantic get-away with my handsome hubby! We just celebrated our 12 year anniversary.
~o~ We are walking with the Lord to get to the place of being debt free!!! I am looking forward to that place of total freedom.
~o~ I am anticipating answered prayer for the families I pray for daily who are totally dependant on God for a miracle! I know you are working on their behalf Lord.
~o~ Protect my kids from the ugliness in this world. What peace I find knowing that, that is God's job as I partner with Him. He will lead them in the paths of righteousness. Just loving knowing that His angels surround them.
~o~ Make it right for so many in such a difficult place. I am so grateful that His love makes a way for all of us.
8 shows I watch ...
~o~ America has Talent
~o~ American Idol
