Hiding Our Sins

As you know, Monday is bin day. Due to the rains I could not mow the lawns on Friday or Saturday so it needed to be done today. I heard the truck in the street behind us and knew I had about an hour to get the bin into the street … but the lawns […]

The Importance of Time Management

For many reasons Jenny’s ironing packed up. She enjoys ironing but due to many circumstances the pile got bigger and bigger. She made a decision a few days back and dedicated time each day to eliminate that pile. I am so proud of her–today she finished the last 6 pieces and the ironing is totally […]

The Blessing of Rain

So today, we started the second week of lock down. For busy people, the week went past quickly. Although I mow the lawns on a Friday, I’m grateful I did it on Monday as today was cold and miserable and it rained later in the day. For me it’s always a joy when God does […]

Hoarding Biblical Truth

Today was a slow day … continued sorting cupboards because it was too cold and windy to be outside. Cleaning out cupboards exposes what we have hoarded over the years. Have you noticed that? Gathering THINGS that are seldom if ever used! Wow … this is embarrassing. Just think about being called a hoarder! There […]

Ruthlessly Dealing with Ants and Weeds

The rains caused a few problems apart from the blessings of not having to water. God does that for us. Problem 1: Before and after the rains the ants go wild seeking food. Problem 2: After the rains the weeds literally jump up everywhere. The only way to deal with these two problems is to […]

Today was noisier, with vehicles traveling, goods trains on the railroad, and people doing repairs or maintenance on their houses. Are people becoming frustrated? After the […]

Interaction at a Distance

On Thursday it stormed here. I waited in vain for the grass to dry on Friday and left the mowing until Saturday. Saturday was miserable and cold … and so this morning (Monday) was lawn mowing day. Today was also refuge bin day … and the cut grass needs to go into the bin. So, […]

Who Should We Be Faithful to in Lockdown?

It is very quiet where we live. Sometimes a neighbour’s kid plays the drums, sometimes kids on the other side play (and cry when mommy calls them inside), sometimes we hear a car or motorbike … but generally it’s quiet. There are so many WhatsApp messages and clips as well as material on the internet […]

David’s Meditation on Hardship

Yesterday went pretty quickly – and so will the next few days – but expect that once the novelty wears off, days will pass slowly. Crises, pandemics and disasters are not unique! David experienced this too (whatever it was). He pens under inspiration: Ps 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation — whom […]

What To Do in Lockdown

Jenny and I went to bed last night … or rather this morning at 00.15. At that moment we were 15 minutes into lock down–lock down would end in 20 days, 23 hours and 45 minutes’ time. So how are we (and you) going to deal with today? Yes, lock down is new. We just […]
