Believe it: God is a road builder

I saw a cartoon of Moses and his friend fishing in the river. Moses’ line is quite deep in the water, but the stream had dammed up where his friend had thrown in his line, and it was now on a strip of dry land. Moses’ friend looked at him and said: “That’s not funny, […]

To see with faith

I’m a farmer through and through. It was a wonderful experience working as a farm manager on two glorious Boland wine farms for 12 years. You work hard throughout the year. First, you prune until your hands seize up in the early morning hours. Shortly after that, buds start appearing on the grey, lifeless vine […]

Wrapped in loving arms

It’s early morning. We’re still in bed. It’s Monday morning and we’re wondering what this week will hold for each of us. I know the previous week was hard for my wife. She has so much on her pitchfork. She has to support so many people. She has so much to do. She has to […]

At the right time

When animals get hurt, they hide. Maybe because they don’t know what to do about the hurt. Sometimes people are like that too. Especially the strong ones. You’re not allowed to say you’re sick. You have to be the strong one. There’s no time now for sitting down and we simply go on. But that’s […]
