Friday! (again)

where is this year going? It's just going by way to fast! The reason why i didn't blog this week is because we started the home school. It's going totally awesome and I am blessed! We did get away one afternoon with friends to the lake and we had an awesome time. I took almost 800 pictures with Nico's camera (a Nikon D40) BUT why i took so many pictures is that I totally fell in love with his zoom lens. It's the lens I have been looking for for over a year now. A Nikkor 55-200mm VR. Awesome. It's light, super fast and crystal clear! And really reasonably priced... around $200. This weekend we are breaking away to Saskatoon. Just for some shopping and stuff. Fun.

Just to share a bit of my story... my whole Spiritual transformation started with understanding RIGHTEOUSNESS. I read Jan Brands books from cover to cover (Goeie nuus & Geregtigheid). Slowly but surely it dawn on me that I AM RIGHT WITH GOD!!!!!! Romans 5:1 THEREFORE, SINCE we are justified (acquitted, declared righteous, and given a right standing with God) through faith, let us [grasp the fact that we] have [the peace of reconciliation to hold and to enjoy] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). God doesn't see me anymore but CHRIST in me. Gal 2: 20 I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
What good news!

peace and love

I love the notion that "God doesn't see me anymore, but Christ in me." That is the thought I am going to take with me today!

Hallo! Hoop julle't 'n fantastiese naweek gehad, en dat dit goed gaan met die Furstenbergs! Dankie vir die Woord wat jy gedeel het. Dis die WAARHEID. En Jesus het self gesĂȘ, "Ek is die Weg, die Waarheid en die Lewe".
Liefde - baie
