Day 1: Love

pieter-en-amanda

Today is our 5th wedding anniversary.

It hasn’t been easy always but I am thankful that we stuck through and came out on the other side.

I am happy to say that I am married to my biggest fan and best friend. He is always there when I need him. I wrote all about it in 2014.

So what makes a perfect marriage? I don’t believe that there is something like that. What I do believe is that Jesus needs to be the centre of the relationship.

Share Your World week 50

I love challenges and this week I’m taking part in Cee’s Share your world challenge. She posts some interesting questions and then you respond 🙂 This way others get to know you better.

Do you have a signature dish? If not is their one in your family? I don’t have a signature dish. If I have to say I would say it is any kind of stew. My mom makes the best macaroni and cheese.

Do you have a favorite board game? I looove board games. I would say Monopoly is my all time favorite.

Is there a household chore that you enjoy? I like washing dishes. But not drying them! Since my elbow injury I have a dishwasher now.

 What is one thing you will never care about? I’m not sure. I like to do research and know things. Mmm I’ll come back to this one when I’ve thought of something.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful for Christmas and the fact that our Savior came to earth. I am looking forward to 2015. Can’t wait to see what it brings.

9/11

Today is 9/11/14. A lot of people are thinking back on 9/11/01 and a lot of people are asking: Where were you when you heard?

I remember exactly where I was on that day. I was in the sitting room of Wag ‘n Bietjie hostel on the Potchefstroom Campus of the North West University. I was a second year student and we where just about to start with a prayer meeting. We were preparing for an outreach in December in George at the coast. It was before Facebook and Twitter. You couldn’t just do a search of a # on Twitter to see what is going on. You had to watch the news.

All of our teammates wasn’t there yet so we were sitting around talking. There was a TV in the room and all of a sudden someone said:’look” and turned up the TV. We watched in awe as the planes hit the building. We were shocked and stunned. When it was time for our meeting to start we prayed for the people of America.

Many years have passed since that day. And the world is a different place now. Even though I didn’t lose anyone that day I felt with the people of America. Today I have a closer link with America with friends and family from America.

I think of everybody that is sad about this event and I hope that this will never happen again.

Love from the Southern tip of Africa.
