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.

What's in the jar??? A closer look at our little visitor :0)

It seems like my "Wordless Wednesday" needed some words after all. hee hee.
Hubby bought us a new bird feeder. Much to the girls delight, it seems to have a massive flaw. They never counted on the birds being small enough to burrow under the seeds and get trapped inside the actual feeder. Thank goodness we haven't had any "casualties" ;0) The girls love setting these little birds free after getting to hold them and inspect them up close. Here's a closer look at our little visitor ...
Looking at these little birds up close reminds my heart how BIG God really is. The Bible tells us that not one little bird falls to the ground without Him knowing about it and caring. He provides for their care and provision each day. We discovered these little birds live in a big old tree a couple of blocks away from our house. My husband saw hundreds of them flying in and out of this tree while walking the dog the other day. How amazing that God showed them where a little place of daily provision could be found over at our house. They come throughout the day to "top up" on food much to our delight. Now if God can direct these tiny little creatures so accurately to a place of blessing and a haven of delights ... how much more does He not care about what is going on in your life today. Be encouraged that He cares and knows exactly how to lead and guide you in the way of peace and overflowing blessing today. This is the same Jesus who says in John 10:10 "I have come that you may have life and have it to the full" (NIV version). All He's waiting for is for you to ask. Each day He offers us all the peace and provision we could ever need in Him. His love offers you that haven today.  
All my love xxx
