Your hand in God’s hand

You often need a partner to help you finish a task. When I was restoring my 4×4 trailer, I could do most of the work on my own. But sometimes I needed an extra pair of hands. When I had to tighten a bolt and nut in the middle of the body, I could go […]

Perfect devotion

You often need a partner to help you finish a task. When I was restoring my 4×4 trailer, I could do most of the work on my own. But sometimes I needed an extra pair of hands. When I had to tighten a bolt and nut in the middle of the body, I could go […]

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 […]

Walking in your shoes

Sometimes your life goes differently from what you’ve planned. After my studies, I farmed on two wonderful wine farms for 12 years. I was exposed to the day-to-day life of a farmer and all the challenges that hold. One of the major challenges is that you are controlled by nature. If there’s a drought, there’s […]

Breakdowns, breakthroughs and seasons

Through the years one picks up wisdom along the way. A lot of it when you’re traveling the road of suffering. I’ve learnt that many things pass through seasons. My business had good seasons, but these were often followed by hard seasons. Relationships go through seasons when everything is going well and then seasons when […]

The right thing to do

My wife had the privilege of spending a few days in Taizé, a classic old monastery in France, to recharge her spiritual batteries, and there she met a young woman from Poland. Not even a year later she knocked on our front door. She was in South Africa to help with the Taizé event in […]
