The low down…
Helloooooo everyone! ☺️
So you’re probably wondering about my logo, username and who this person is. My logo encapsulates the entirety of it all so let me elaborate from there. It derives from my first name -Dineo. A derivative of the so called Southern Sotho… directly translates into English as “GIFTS”.
I’m from a small beautiful town on the border of Eastern Cape and KZN called Matatiele.
Over the past few years of my life I’ve honestly been so blessed with just incredible people in my life who’ve helped me grow, helped me become. I’ve made mistakes, been hurt, I’ve hurt others- but God’s Grace has gently sustained me until now and brought me so much joy! Paradoxical to the meaning of my name, I’ve always felt like I am the one who is blessed and thus “GIFTED” more than being the gift my name declares me to be. And for all my blessings I’m forever GRATEFUL!
I’m a daughter of the most high first, second a daughter to my parents, a sister to my older sister, a friend to many , a servant by doctorship. (One day I’ll be a wife and a mother!! )
My passions include interacting with people, (and those close to me know I can get quite deep) connecting with others, nutrition( more like eating!!), exercise and outdoor activities- jogging in particular, and oh what would my world be without music, worship and singing!
SO THIS BLOG …? It boils down to how over the years the word has brought to my realisation and now firm belief that I’m *gifted2give*…. I believe in the fact that we all have so much to learn from each other- be it our successes, our failures or being encouraged from just observation of one anothers’ lives. GET THIS- SOMEONE OUT THERE NEEDS TO HEAR YOUR STORY. Why? Because YOUR GROWTH – BE IT AN KIND OF GROWTH- SHOULD NOT ONLY BENEFIT YOU!
I believe I’m blessed so that so that others may benefit and be blessed as well! There’s gotta be more to all of this blessing maaayn! That’s one of the deepest parts of my heart. So I’ve finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it.
I founded foodfaithfavourites with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and I have been at it ever since.
And so as I share simply the daily mundane parts of my life and passions with you, I hope and pray that it will reach at least one soul, that it may bring someone to salvation, teach someone one or two things, or bring someone to a new perspective, joy or just pure entertainment ( In a good way I hope lol!) AS FAR AS WHAT’S BEEN PUT IN MY HEART- THIS IS THE BEST WAY I KNOW HOW TO SHARE THE BLESSINGS- SHARING MY LIFE!
May He who is behind it all get the utmost glory He deserves through it all!😊
ALL MY LOVE , LIGHT, SUNSHINE, LAUGHTER AND CRAZINESS TO ALL OF YOU!!
