Living Life One Step at a Time in Faith

I am sitting at the computer, wondering which post to write first...I was unable to write this week due to our moving to a new (larger) home on a stunning farm just outside Sedgefield.  Our computer only got set up today, leaving you waiting for a new sewing challenge and the exciting outcome of my {HeART} Giveaway, which, by the way, will remain open till the 7th of February!!

To top off a (very) chaotic week of driving, cleaning, unpacking, some major structural renovations, etc, our sweet doggie, Zak, got REALLY sick.  Mom rushed him down to the vet this morning and, in spite of a very bad prognosis, seems to be pulling through. He is still on a drip and will remain there till tomorrow.  Because the treatment is so very costly, we are bringing him home to further treat him ourselves. Beth and the rest of our family would really appreciate your prayers - I don't know what life would be like without Zak! He really is part of our family!

Sofia is getting cuter by the day, so stay posted for an adorable selection of photographs...and smiles:)

...And as soon as the weather warms up and we get organized (lol), I will snap some photos of our lovely house, the scenery and the girls!  It really feels like winter has come along again but we are grateful for the bountiful and much needed rain which has fallen. 

We also spent many anxious moments thinking of my grandmother and her husband who manage a private game reserve in the Bain's Kloof mountains.  Earlier this week, fires swept through their area, burning eighteen of the thirty four log cabins to the ground.  Thankfully my Gran's cabin was saved and we are grateful that the Lord Jesus answered our prayers for her and her husband's protection, and the safety of her home.  

The verse I have picked for the week is 2 Corinthians 9:6-9.

'Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.  Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.'

I will be back soon!  Enjoy the rest of your week!

Lots of love,
