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 […]

Lack of Growth

Today I want to mention two stories. The first is that yesterday, our friend’s wife came home after delivering her baby on Tuesday night. As I could not visit her or speak with her, I decided to give her a call and congratulate the new mommy. Both mother and father are on cloud nine! I […]

The Power of God for Salvation

Giving You What You Want

Dealing With Anger

Do you do things that result in disaster on purpose? I am more than certain you don’t, yet there are times when you do things that result is the disaster (I’m using the word “disaster” in a general way). I needed to do home counseling today. Jenny stayed at home. Before my return, I gave […]

Evangelistic Prayers

I received a call this morning from an elderly lady who lives in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. She and her late husband were founder members of one of the church’s there. They were and she still is at 88 very evangelistic. Her heart beats for the Gospel. Few people escape being told about Jesus […]
