Happy Thanks giving!

This weekend is thanks giving weekend in Canada. And although we never celebrated this day in South Africa, it's a wonderful opportunity to reflect on our lives and just say thank you! It's also our Pastor's birthday and I made him a little album that says "thank you". You can see the whole album here. Thanks to Cosmo Cricket for the AWESOME product.

Jaku and Johann made it safe and sound to France and they watched the game between South Africa and Fuji in Marseilles earlier today. I think one thing that they are giving thanks for is that we won the game. But boy, I listened to Niekie v d Berg's commentary on rsg.co.za and I sweat from stress.

a thought of thank giving: Phil 4: 6Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. 7And God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Tomorrow I am working on the new Scrap in Style collection. This month designed by Kristina Contes. It's awesome. I am so excited to get working.!!!!

love and a kiss

Hi Wilna!
What a wonderful weekend we had! Our marriage ministry dinner was a HUGE success on Friday night. God blessed us with +/- 80 couples that attended the dinner!
On Saturday we had a family day at our kids' school. Luckily there was a hall and a huge tent, because it rained a lot.
And on Sunday we went to see "Huisgenoot Skouspel" at Sun City, and afterwards we watched the rugby on a big screen! WOW!
Fritz and I give all our thanks and praize to the Lord for a BLESSED weekend - in so many ways!
Love to you & your girls!

Hi Wilna

Ek weet ek het dit al gese, en ek sal weer: dankie vir jou daaglikse stukkie inspirasie. Elke dag maak ek eers 'n draai by jou, donna, en annette scholtz se blogs. Dit gee my sommer 'n daaglikse smile.

Baie Dankie, en doe zo voort! Ek het self 'n blog, en ek weet hoe 'n groot commitment dit soms is, dus weet dat ek jou moeite waardeer.

Wilna, you chose to share my absolute favorite Bible passage of all time today! This is my go-to verse when I find myself fretting and anxious. Every time I read it, it settles my heart!

It's not Thanksgiving in the U.S., but I would like to say that I am thankful for the way in which you share yourself through your blog and through your work.
