A plan to share love

Boats (not his real name) from the Boland told me this story: My daughter fell ill with a really bad virus and struggled to get well again. It was really exhausting and financially I struggled too, because the car broke down more than once and so it went on. It was a really bad time […]

We all make mistakes

We all make mistakes. Some of us a lot, and to refer to it so lightly is an abuse of the truth. Yes, it’s true – most of us struggle with some sort of sin that plagues our lives on a regular basis. We know we shouldn’t let it in, but unfortunately, before we know […]

A marriage for two 2 ≠ 3

I wonder why people cross the boundaries of a marriage. Is it because it has become boring and the excitement on the other side of the fence has just become too much fun? Does the destruction that is wrought on this side have no impact on decisions? I don’t know if there are any winners […]

A full-time mission

I’m back with the team of mountain bikers who rented our house while practicing for the Cape Epic. I was simply amazed by the food left behind in the fridge. Obviously, only the best, because by using pounds and dollars all the shops had bargains for them. Actually, I’ve never seen such food. Pumpkin pasta […]

Remember and do

Although it was no easy task to raise six children, my parents did it. There were rules to maintain order and if you crossed the line, there were consequences. And so, after a transgression we’d quickly run to my mum for a hiding. She couldn’t actually give a real hiding, but when my dad heard […]

Professional Christians

One of the best mountain bike teams in the world stayed in our house for some time while practicing for the Cape Epic mountain bike tour. I was simply astounded by all that I saw in the garage. Against one wall, wheels stood stacked together. Then there was a special table filled with tools. Boxes […]
