Causing Crashes

I had a meeting in Midrand today at 1pm. I gave myself adequate time to get there via the N1. Once past the Brakfontein intersection, an ambulance overtook me with lights flashing, traveling at a high speed. After a few kilometers the highway slowed down considerably … to a crawl. By the time I past […]

Shut Out

I needed to have a pre-marital course manual printed because my printer seems to have finally decided it “ain’t gonna work no more”. I firstly went to a stationary shop but they do not do printing. Then I visited a PostNet Shop and had the printing done there. Because there is a “plastic store” in […]

Biblical Discipline

I wonder whether you have ever been disciplined in a church or were part of a church were discipline had been exercised. There are so many different opinions and views and beliefs regarding discipline that when you put them all together its looks like an exotic scramble egg mixture. Then, all too often, when discipline […]

Cheating

I needed to have our trailer’s license renewed today as the license expired on 30 September (though the law gives us 21 days to do the renewal). As we also needed to get Jenny’s prescription at Dischem Pharmacy, I asked her to travel with me. The first stop was the Post Office in Waverly to […]

Speeding

With all the drama in the State Capture Commission, the arrests this past week of top level politicians for corruption and the battles being played out in political parties, one often overlooks other news items that seem to be drowned out or blurred from sight. Over this weekend, five motorists were caught traveling between 164 […]

Living Water

For weeks (maybe in excess of two to three months), a main water pipe has been leaking almost a kilometer from where we live. The municipality has sent teams to repair this leak on many occasions, but each time the pipe remains leaking. The leak is a steady stream that dams up the huge hole […]

The Power of God for Salvation

Today was the third funeral I have taken this year. The friend who passed away joined us when we tried a church plant in Irene/Centurion fourteen-odd years ago and was part of the Bible Study in Centurion for older folk. He died on 25 September after a very short illness … although by his own […]

Giving You What You Want

Today we decided to visit a nursery because we need some ground cover and other small plants for our log rock garden. Because of lockdown, we don’t travel much or too far, so I decided to surprise Jenny by taking her to a Garden Center quite a way from us. We arrived at the Garden […]

Biblical Marriage

If you are married, did you have a pre-marital course to prepare you for marriage? Jenny and I are just under 5 months shy of been married for 50 years. Before we were married, we arranged to meet with the pastor. He saw us for about 30 minutes and then married us a few months […]
