In this blog I will write about everything that has to do with being a mum and a woman. It will be about my personal experiences as well as about things that I find interesting and which I want to share. It will also be about my faith in God.

I decided to join in the challenge of five minute friday by The Gypsy mama to write for five minutes about :

If I knew I could, I would......

do a miracle. I would instantly let the hair of my oldest daughter grow back on every bald spot.
But I know that our Lord aleady has started His healing process in her.
When my 6 year old was one year, she started to get a spot on her scalp where there was no hair.
Gradually her hair became less and less untill when she was three, she only had a tiny bit of hair in the middle of her head. She also had no eye lashes or eye brows.
The doctors couldn't find what was wrong with her. They couldn't confirm that it was alopecia.
They advised us to look for an alternative healing.
And being christians ofcourse we put our trust on Jesus Christ and He healed her.
Her eye lashes and eye brows are now back and there is hair at the back and we believe that He will complete His work.

Yeah, so this was only a try.It wasn;t easy at all. I didn't know five minutes went so fast LOL There's so much I still would've liked to say....

I wanted to add how heartbreaking it was as a mother to see your child like that.
and how much she wanted to have hair from a certain age and how proud she is now of her beautiful curls. Glory to God.
We're trusting the Lord she will have a head full of hair soon.
Halleluyah !

Now it's your turn: write for five minutes and go to the blog of The gypsy mama to lins as I've done.

Good luck ,God bless you and have a nice weekend.

Isaiah 53:5
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

He is risen !

Happy Easter all.

I hope everyone had a nice first Easter. I had a very nice day with my family.

We all went to church where there was a special service with a part where someone played the devil. It was about what the devil must've thought on Saturday , the day after Jesus died and there was a link made with our time. When you're feeling lost and desperate like the disciples must've felt, the devil things that he has won and keeps telling you lies.

And was Sunday....Jesus rose from the death. Halleluyah! The devil is defeated and those who believe in Jesus and accept Him as their Saviour are saved and no longer have to live in despair and believe in the lies of the devil..We are freed from the lies of the devil by the sacrifice from Jesus on the cross. Glory to His name !

The choir sang a few good songs. Then they ended with saying: 'because we are saved ,we are blessed' and we had to say that a couple of times.That was great because I truly feel blessed every day. Glory to God ! We brought Yov to the babygroup but kept Ix and Nevaeh with us. Ix was a bit scared of the part with the devil but she was okay. Baby Nevaeh was again very good in church.She slept for the biggest part but also played a bit with the toy bar in her car seat or was just lying in my arms while she was awake.

We had planned to eat in the restaurant from the church after church was over but hubby said they only had Irish food and he wanted something else.Then I thought of getting food at home and then having a picnic in the park but we were afraid that it was going to rain and hubby had some 'important' match to watch on tv so he suggested to do it in the backgarden.

Then I seemed to feel a drop and it was so dark that we expected it to rain soon and it seemed quite chilly so instead we had a picnic on the floor in the dining room. We had a chicken left that was already done which I heated in the oven and we had muffins, fruit,.bread and other food.
Because my middle one was sleeping only my oldest and I really did the picnic.
Hubby just joined in the eating of the chicken LOL

Later I did a mini chocolate egg hunt for the girls but only Ixora, my oldest really did the hunt. Perhaps the middle one Yovannah was still a bit too young.
She was too occupied doing other things and didn't understand that she had to look for eggs ,I think. But the eggs that I hid on the lowest places were for her (very easy to find) so Ix gave them to her when she found them and Yov enjoyed eating them ofcourse.Ix really enjoyed the hunt.
They had some fries with beaded mushrooms later and hubby and I had a nasi goreng ( rice mixed with pieces of chicken in soyasause)

In the meantime I baked a carrot cake for Nevaeh . For some reason I baked a cake when Ix was two months old and gave her silver bracelet with her name on it. So when Yov was two months I decided to do the same and now it's Nevaehs turn even though I ended up making the cake a week later and the bracelet I'm going to buy this week. I got some creamy icing and minimarsmellos and filled and iced the cake and the kids helped me decorate it a bit.
We put two half strawberries in the middle because Ix suggested it a few times and first I thought the combination with marshmellos was strange but I decied t do it after all. It was the first time I made a cake like this and I really enjoyed doing it a lot.

So maybe I'm going to start making cakes more often...

I'm planning to make cupcakes as an activity with the kids anyway next week.
I saw a nice book about it in Dunnes stores for only E4,99 with ideas so I might get it and try to make some really nice ones.

Today we're doing a BBQ at home and maybe we're going to do something else like the park, the beach, indoor playground or the movies

Whatever you have planned for today, I'm wishing you s lovely day.....

And Gods richest blessings to you....

New addition

So it's been some time since I wrote in my blog.
We're a year further and my baby is one now going on two in two months and my big girl is 6.
We've been blessed with an addition to the family: a new baby girl who's name is Nevaeh-Divine.

I'm still on maternity leave at the moment but I'm not quite sure when I will go back to work or whether I will go back at all so for now I'm a SAHM again. I'm enjoying this a lot although there have been some challenging times mainly because it's not always easy to take care of two children under two.

It's also a challenge in a positive way to be a housewife and fulltime mom. It’s really teaching me a lot.
Patience, flexibility, creativity. I’m learning not to freak out when things don’t go as planned and to overcome and cope with difficult situations. I’ve learned that the difficult times won’t last forever. For instance when they all cry at the same time, there will always be another moment where they are all happy and content and things are good and peaceful.
Having to take care of three children certainly makes you grow as a person and as a woman. And I’m really grateful as well to be so rich in children.

I only had to do it for 4 weeks on my own now because the baby was born in Suriname South America and I had the help of my mother and husband for the first weeks.
Little by little it's getting easier. Since the car is fixed, hubby brings my eldest daughter Ixora to school and picks her up before he's off to work so luckily I don't have to worry about that part. Because for a while I had to take her with public transport on some days and collect her by public transport every day with baby and toddler.
Praise God that time is over even if by Gods grace it was pretty manageable most of the time .But it did take up quite some time and now I can just spend some time at home and do some cleaning and stuff.
I also get a lot of help from my six year old -when she is back from school -who is trying to soothe the baby when the baby and toddler need my attention at the same time. She's starting to get pretty good at it and loves her baby sister to pieces.
I'm really proud of her and grateful as well.
Overall I really feel so blessed and am so happy with my wonderful girls

Children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalm 127 : 3.

Glory to the Lord !!
