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.

Thoughts to linger over

"You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments you have TRULY LIVED are the moments when you have done things in the SPIRIT OF LOVE."
Henry Drummond
What an absolutely beautiful quote to linger over. My best memories are founded in moments of love and joy expressed fully. Ephesians 5:2 encourages us to "Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Living a life of love not not only impacts and imprints lasting peace and joy in those around us ... it changes us from the inside out. I think I am going to spend a little more time pondering just how I am going to unleash my love upon my precious family and friends this week!
Love Janine xoxo

Janine, once again you have 'hit the nail on the head', as the saying goes;

Beauty of Life doesn't depend on how happy you make other people, but on how happy other people are around you!

Love, love love xxx
