Hi my dear friends. I am greeting you from the beautiful scenic Plettenberg Bay. I am afraid this will be an unusual post for me. Blogger isn't allowing me to upload any photos so I will have to wait until we get home before I can share my photos with you.
This is our second week of our two week vacation. On the day before we left my little seven year old nephew was brutally attacked by a pit bull terrier and his little face badly mangled. His little nose was nearly ripped off his face and the dog bit into his gums and he lost a tooth. Today, 10 days after the attack, I am happy to let you know that he is healing well. Thank you to each and every one who prayed with us that the Lord will heal him physically and emotionally.
Our break at the beach have been amazing. Every morning we go for long walks along the beach between the Beacon Island hotel and Robberg or from the hotel to the Look Out beach. Ever since our first vacation here in 2006 my big dream have been to find my own pansy shell on the beach. I feel blessed that when we walked along Look Out beach last week, I found my little pansy shell ;-) My lily white body has slowly gotten a healthy glow from the sun. I am not one that usually find it easy to sleep during the day, but somehow I just can't help myself and in the afternoons I struggle to keep my eyes open...and then I just give in to a glorious afternoon snooze. I love it that this is the one place where I can just switch off and I become so relaxed. It is unbelievable that when we get here it is like somebody just flipped a switch and I am "OFF". I haven't even read as much as I normally do. I finished the latest Khaled Hosseini book "And the Mountains Echoed" and I am still reading the third book in the Langani Trilogy by the Keating sisters.
We have three more days here and will be returning a day early. The Boardwalk in PE is having it's annual benefit golf day on Friday and the Mission has been selected to be the beneficiary this year. So on Friday night we will be rubbing shoulders with amongst others, the rugby legend, Naas Botha, at the prize giving and handover of the funds.
I will be back towards this weekend with photos of our time away.
