What are you learning?

Can I tell you a secret? I’ve started using anti-aging cream. They say once you reach the other side of your thirties, it’s time to start treating those areas of skin which are prone to signs of age. So I layer on my Nivea every single night in an attempt to stay younger for longer.

Send Someone Else

The bell rang, break was over. It was time for period 3, Afrikaans. My hands were clammy and my heart was racing. ‘I can’t do this, I can’t do this’, I chanted over and over again in my head as we lined up outside Mrs Hamiltons classroom. “Single file” she demanded as she directed us

Celebration and Sadness

It’s Holy Week. The week in which we celebrate our incredible Saviours death and resurrection. He died so we could live. But He rose again. And today and everyday we celebrate the sacred relationship of intimate union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The resurrected life of Jesus bids my sin farewell and beckons

Know in Part

1 Corinthians 13:9,10, 12 – “For we know in part and we prophesy in part, when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.” We sit with our planners, planning for

As January rolled in and the holidays were a thing of the past, I mourned for what was – the slower days and rhthyms of late mornings and afternoon naps, the days that rolled from one to another while demanding nothing but rest. I wasn’t ready to let go of the slow and steady. So

Quiet Times

My house erupts with excitement when my husband walks through the front door every evening. My girls run into his arms and with one fell swoop, he picks them up and embraces them with eagerness and excitement. I watch my girls giggle as they are encamped by arms of love and adoration. I think as

Anxious for Nothing

We find ourselves a few days away from February already – can you believe it? Twenty-twenty-one promised to be a better year than twenty-twenty. It wasn’t a hard ask – yet somehow, we find ourselves back in the rut of social distancing, hand sanitising and mask wearing. The year has kicked into full gear and

Fear of man vs Fear of God

Fear: a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid. Fear: to have reverential awe of. Exodus 1: 8-11 ESV – “Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “Behold, the people

Twenty Twenty One: A Principle

In the season of planting, It’s important to remember this: the degree to which we are willing to sow, is the degree in which we will reap our rewards. 2 Corinthians 9:6 – “The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” If we sow sparingly into

Twenty Twenty One: A Word

I love that Gods Word gives us everything we need to live a life of godliness. The Bible is an instruction manual for life, helping us navigate the new and the not so new, the normal and the not so normal, the nice and the not so nice. As we walk into the new year,
