"Isus, Bog sin, janje dostojno!"

“Isus, Bog sin, janje dostojno!” “Jezus, Zoon van God, Heerlijk is Uw naam!” “Jesus, Son of God, Worthy is Your Name!” Zondagmorgen 10 augustus, zijn we naar een Kroatische gemeente geweest hier in Osijek. Vorig jaar waren we ook hier. Het is vreemd om een dienst bij te wonen die je niet verstaat. Gelukkig vertaalde een…

Visit to Budapest

On the first weekend in August we went for four days to Budapest, so that Jelle could work with Todd Price for a couple of days and so that the kids could have playtime.  I spend a lot of time with Pam and she gave me a lot of holiday time! Always good conversations about…

being at home

  “Make yourself at home!” said the warden in the cathedral of Osijek to me. We are right in the middle of our Summer-mission-trip and one day I just needed some time to be alone and sit and write about the many things which happened in the past few months. And of course there is always enough to…

A prayer for our leaders.

Just a few weeks ago, on June the sixth, we could see a gathering of worldleaders on the beach in France. Obama, our own king Willem Alexander, the elderly queen of England, Angela Merkel from Germany, Putin from Russia, the new president of Ukrain. And many others. It really touched me to see them all…

Letting go….

What do gardening, raising kids and baking bread have in common? This question came into my mind, when I realized that they all fill a daily part of my life. I love it all very much, it teaches me an awful lot and yet it is not easy! and I feel very often no clear…

Run the race with perseverance.

It must have been in the early eighties when I was a little girl of around six years old. And here I was sitting next to my dad and my sister on the front row in church. We were on holiday at my aunts and uncles house in Zeeland, in the lower parts of our…

Een grote belofte

  Het was een paar weken voor onze trouwdag dat ik aan mijn bureautje zat, op mijn slaapkamer. Ik woonde nog thuis bij mijn ouders. Op dat moment realizeerde ik me dat het een grootse, prachtige, speciale tijd was. Maar ook een tijd waarin ik absoluut niet kon overzien aan welke beloftes ik me die…

Free apple picking.

Our local government has 500 fruit trees just for local people to enjoy. That is good news for a woman like me. Last week I went with Laurens and got two big bags. After half an hour of picking we got them both filled up with nice, juicy apples. When I drove back to our…
