What a day! It has been amazing!

Turn your ear
To Heaven and hear
The noise inside
The sound of angels awe
The sound of angels' songs
And all this for a King
We could join and sing
'All to Christ our King!'

How constant
How divine
This song of ours will rise
Oh, how constant
How divine
This love of ours will rise
Will rise...

Ohh praise Him!
Ohh praise Him!
He is Holy!
He is Holy!

Turn your gaze
To Heaven and raise
A joyous noise
Oh the sound of salvation come
The sound of rescued ones
And all this for a king
Angels join to sing
'All for Christ our King!'


Oh la la la la la la..
Oh la la la la la la..
Oh la la la la la... laaa laa laa laaa!


How infinite and sweet
This love so rescuing
Oh how infinitely sweet
This great love that has redeemed
As one, we sing...

He is Holy,
He is Holy



Oh la la la la la la..
Oh la la la la la la..
Oh la la la la la... laaa laa laa laaa!



Oh la la la la la la..
Oh la la la la la la..
Oh la la la la la... laaa laa laa laaa laa!
(O Praise Him by David Crowder Band)

I think God was getting as tired of my moaning  as I was.  Amazing thing happened today, my husband got a phone call to say that the job he was going to get doesn't look like it'll be happening, or more like we want you we just can't pay you.  Ok, we had kinda figured that much and had already by yesterday evening been dicussing other possibilities.  We've decided to raise support to be able to do the work we do even if the people we know we are called to work with can't pay us.  We are also going to finally start our surf-lifestyle business so that we can move away from the support.  We believe in being tent makers (Acts 20:34).   The craziest most God thing happened today, the guy who was going to have my husband work full time at his school apologised for taking time to get back to him and said he wanted to pay Emiel what would have been a months salary.  The enormity of that is we had been saying to God "You have to come through for us, we just do not have another option, we need to buy nappies (diapers), formula, food, you know the basics.  We also so have bills that need to be paid."   He so came through for us!!!!

I have been thinking about starting another blog.  I have had quite the life and have always felt God wants to use it. It will be aimed at women, young and old.  I really want to see women healed and whole and living out a most beautiful existence.  If you have stories to share of what God has done in your life, please send them through to me. I was given this verse on my wedding day.

Zephaniah 3:17
The LORD your God is with you; his power gives you victory. The LORD will take delight in you, and in his love he will give you new life. He will sing and be joyful over you. (Good News Bible)

The LORD your God wins victory after victory and is always with you. He celebrates and sings because of you, and he will refresh your life with his love. (CEV- can't remember what that stands for)

My darling daughter is lying beside me on a donut (baby thing) on the floor.  Every now and again she rolls over spits out her dummy (pacifier) and moans.  I think she is too hot to sleep, but she needs to so I'll roll her over again plug in the dummy and tell her I love her.

I am not going to do a separate post for this but we are kinda thinking about baby-led.  What this is is baby eating finger foods or helping them self to the same food we are eating.  Please Google it yourself.  I don't find the information very comprehensive, but I like the concept and so does my little Beet.  (I have a nick name for her that my  husband is worried will stay, it's Beetroot. Not that she looks like a beetroot, or that her name sounds like it.  I just like it, so there!) Anyways, wanted to show a pic. 

And I learnt the coolest game last night.  Its called Bannagramme.  It's like speed Scrabble!  Who thought you could have so much fun spelling?!!

And we had our first young adults last night.  It was so amazing to be a part of something like that again.  We used to run a home fellowship group with a bunch of awesome people, at our previous church.  we have missed it and the people so much.  

Ok, I am going this post this now.  The little man is literally pulling on my skirt telling me wants to eat.

Swollen-eye girl

My husband suggests I change my e-mail to swolleneyegirl@something.somethingelse.  It has something to do with the look of my right eye.  Little children, mine, were playing rough in my bed.  One child, the boy, pushes the other child, the girl, and that child lands on/in my eye.  What happened as a result is a fracture in the bone behind the eye.  Not really a problem, but I blew my nose a bit later.  This pushed air through the fracture in the sinus and it popped my eye out of the socket.   Luckily I was able to put it back.  I have to rest my eye and not blow my nose for 10days.  But God is so faithful, it could have been worse, the eye doctor blessed us with huge discount and another patient offered us a free family photo shoot.

And in other news we will be picking up our visas on the 28th of December!!!!!!!  God is so faithful and we have seen miracle upon miracle happen!  We know He will continue to move all mountains!  Please continue to pray for us!

Alexander gets lost

Last night we lost Alexander while shopping.  We'd actually gone to look for a blanket for bicycle rides and he was really excited.  We'd also allowed him to walk beside us not attached to us.  Being 2 he abused this privilege and bolted.  I don't know why we took so long to register that we couldn't see him or why nobody paid us any attention when we started screaming his name.  Last night I'm sure I became the crazy gajin (foreigner) ranting.  Imagine the scene: I'm dressed like a ... I don't know-someone who didn't go to fashion school... and my eyes are already red and swollen from crying (another tale for another time.)  Bebe calmly perched on my hip, didn't even peep.  Emiel had the sense to remember that Alexander had wanted to go downstairs and went to look for him.  Alexander had taken himself down the escalators (I hated the stupid moving stairs before now I have even more yucky emotion towards them).  A woman on the basement floor found …

"I am happy Mom"

Today was Alexander's first field trip and well, my first field trip as a teacher.  We went to the Momofoku Ando Instant Ramen Museum- the birthplace of instant noodles.  With 11 little people, Alexander being the most unruly, my nerves were somewhat frayed by the time we got back to school.  Alexander has a way of fraying my nerves at the moment.  He has reached a new level of stubbornness that would frighten most mere mortals, but I am not a mere mortal, I am his mother.  The most amusing or irritating thing he has come up with is "I am happy Mom" when I have to discipline him.  Yes, Alexander, you are happy and I am happy for you, but I am more interested in how happy you will be in your future. I just know as I know that if I am not able to bend his will in the right direction he will grow up to be man that is forceful, hard and demanding.

In other news, my sister's boyfriend is fine.  It turned out to be something minor, but painful.  I really miss home when I t…
