A heavy heart

This week I have a heavy heart and will not be writing a blog.  

Ian and I are in South Africa taking a two day break.  Today took a scenic drive to a vista called "God's Window" (we haven't been there since 2005).  I will post a few photos for you to see the magnificence of God's creation while I take this weekend to rest.

On a clear day you can see the Indian Ocean from here.

"Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me." Psalm 51:12

Live from South Africa.



  1. prayers and encouragement from a far-away faithful reader....thank you for serving the least of these. we may never meet this side of heaven, but I'm so glad you share parts of your life so we can read about these beautiful children. blessings on your vacation.....! (Isaiah 51:6)

  2. Your heart is in everything you do and you feel deeply. I remember you telling me to go into s room and just be with God and speak directly
    To him and he will be there for you always. Take some time to be with God my friend, alone and share your heart. He will carry you and keep you. Love you so much

  3. Cannot imagine the things you go through each day. God gave us these emotions. Heavy Heart, Worry, Sadness. Feel them. God will sustain you and nourish your heart and soul. Give it time. Blessings to you and your family.

  4. Hang in there, Janine. I can only imagine what you see on a daily basis that would bring on a heavy heart. Just know that we're all here supporting you and cheering you on. All the best, Jamie
