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.

It's Raining!!!!!!

Hallelujah!!! It's raining!!! I cannot tell you how excited we are. The Eastern Cape has been in serious drought for over a year already! Our little pool that we bought has stood empty for over a year ... all the grass is brown ... but now comes a celebrated reprieve in the drought and we are going all out to celebrate God's blessing to us. 
Just look at how happy my flowers are ...
 Even our Sabie boy is lying out in the gentle rain, soaking up the cool breeze.
As for us ... well we are smelling the warm aroma of waffles sizzling in the pan ...
Don't you just love all the happy faces =0)
(My Leelee with her bestie Tanna)
And Tianna with her bestie Jade.

After a late brunch we cuddled behind the piano working out a new little tune. My sweet 6 year old took this pic of us.  
Precious Jesus, thank you for your gentle rain that fills our hearts with so much joy!!! Thank you for the many ways that you love us each day. All we really need to have a great day is Your beautiful love!
Sending a BIG hug to each of you my precious bloggy friends today.
Much love xxx
