Happy Birthday Debbie

Many of my blog readers have visited Debbie's blog (here)  Not only did Debbie give up the comforts of suburbia to support John in his quest to carve out a Purpose-driven life in the Drakensberg, but she also home-schools their four-year-old son and seven-year-old daughter, while caring for a their five-month-old baby boy and a twenty-month-old toddler.

The results of Debbie's commitment to and faithful walk with the Lord, are readily visible. Our precious grandchildren are healthy, happy and TOTALLY unspoilt. Hurrah. They are well-spoken, highly intelligent and obedient. In a word, pleasant and beautiful.  All a testimony to Debbie's unstinting love and care.

Debbie my word for you for 2011 is that not only are you a mother to our four beautiful grandchildren, but that you will still mother, nuture and educate many children on your land.

Bless you , dearest Debz. We love you dearly!

A very special lady, our daughter-in-law:  a wonderful wife to John and a brilliant mother to her four children

  2. Debz is quite a gal. She displays strength and gentle kindness at the same time. Your family walks in beauty.
