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 (15) and Angelee (12) 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. 3 years ago our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! "Love in Action" is our journey as a family to love the way Jesus is teaching us to love and live.

Do I look like Him?

I've been thinking about why I started this blog and what I want to accomplish by continuing it. When I started this blog, the phrase "love in action"  was loud and clear in my heart. As a Christian of  28 years I have been assessing what it really means to be called and known as a follower of Christ. Do I love Him - yes!! Has He changed my heart and life forever - yes!! Do I know Him - well ... the more I get to know Him, the more I realise how much more there is to know and love about Him. I have also come to realise that to really know Him is to have my heart turned inside out with compassion. This I am still learning so much about. Jesus is love. Everything He does is motivated by love. How can I represent Him as a Christian and not be compelled to love? This is making me take a closer look into my own heart. Does my hand reach out to touch the untouchables like His does? Do my arms gather the little children that were so drawn to Him? Do sinners flock around me seeking to be set free and embrace truth as Jesus always does? Does truth mixed with love come out of my mouth? I am certainly on a journey with Jesus and have so much to learn, and I want this blog to be a place that encourages and inspired to put His love into action and reach out around us to represent Jesus well by taking action! I would love to hear what the Lord has spoken to your heart about in how to touch and reach out in your community or even further a field. May we all encourage one another to action and be true followers of Christ!
All my Love,
Janine
