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.

3+3=6 more sleeps in the Robinson house!

3 + 3 = 6
6 more sleeps and these two beauties CANNOT WAIT
to lavish all their love on their little baby brother. 
Just another layer of restoration for me lately is seeing God restore their faith and joy. Their prayers for baby Gabe's upcoming birth are filled more and more with joy than the worry of saying goodbye to another brother. While it is still a process, this is big growth and healing. My prayer all throughout this pregnancy has been for the Lord to restore to them an innocent and worry-free outlook on pregnancy so that when they grow into the beautiful women, wives and mother-to-be that they will one day become ... their experiences of pregnancy will not be tainted with fear. God can and is doing this. Every moment of carrying Gabriel has been a joyful experience for us as a family. It has been filled with blessing and the very desires of each of our hearts. It takes my breath away to see how He CAN and DOES restore ... to the uttermost! Even though it does take time, we can rejoice in His faithfulness. 
Almost 16 months after immense loss ... I see joy in their little eyes! God has faithfully been walking them through the sea of emotions that comes with grief. God is restoring their precious little hearts. Instead of bitterness, anger and anguish, I can see bright-shinning traits of His tender handiwork on their hearts. Laughter comes bubbling out of them. They have a revelation of Heaven that is a testimony to others around them without them even knowing it! They talk about their little brother Zac with an ease and assurance that He is indeed alive and growing - just in Heaven instead of earth. It blesses me to hear other people sharing with me the things that they share. In these matters of the heart - they are wiser than their tender years. Just another pointer to the faithful love-in-action of our precious Jesus. I am so expectant to see their joy on the day of Gabe's birth. I cannot wait to see him in their arms!
God ... You are so good to us!
All my love xxx
