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 (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.

We're in the World Cup Baby!

Handsome hubby and I got to share such an amazing memory together today - we went to watch the world cup live in our city. I am not much of a sporty girl, but patriotism for the land that I love has won me over to support the soccer and what fun to share the adventure with my gorgeous hubby! The game was Switzerland vs Chile. Everywhere we looked we saw die-hard fans all dressed in red. We shared our corner of the stadium with some wild Chile fans ... and their team certainly did not let them down! We took our vuvuzela's and added our cheers to an amazing crowd. Here are some pics from this special memory we shared today. 
All excited outside the stadium with our family. A friendly policeman took our pic :) 
The stadium starting to fill up while waiting for the game to start. So cool seeing everyone's excitement and patriotism. 
As we festively say in South Africa "Ki Nako" ... "it is here" and I am so stoked to have been able to see some of it live!
Opening ceremony. I love the hands over the heart. 
What a buzz!
Chile fans going all out because ...
They finally won! So very cool.

Tonight I go to sleep with a heart very full and a smile from ear to ear. Beautiful, beautiful memories. Keep us South Africans in your prayers tomorrow afternoon as we play our next match against France to see whether we get to go through to the next level or strike out of the tournament. 

All my love,
Jan
