Just came across this blog – well, a while ago, but only really reading it now. Fantastic writing. Can really connect to this.
A while ago hubby watched a movie one night when he couldn’t sleep. Me – I was of course so far in zzz land that I don’t think I knew that he was even up that night. The next morning, he told me of a movie that he watched and how much he enjoyed it and that he thinks I should watch it.
And so last night I did.
And it was wonderful.
It’s a story written by Mitch Albom of “Tuesdays with Morrie” fame. And it tells the true of story of Mitch’s experience of visiting his Rabbi who asked me to prepare a eulogy for him. At the time of the request, the Rabbi was 82 – he eventually died at age 90 and in the intervening years Mitch Albom used to visit his Rabbi regularly to prepare a eulogy based on who the man was, not just the man…

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 NKJV
God is love, God loves US. Can you imagine, giving up your only son to die for the world? I know you can not compare anything to what Christ did for us, but it is just something so mind-blowing that every time I think about it, I can’t wrap my head around it. Even though I sin, he is always there, not matter what I do He still loves me the same. Just by thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. I know I am not perfect, no one is, but I know I have someone to help me with my struggles. I know I have someone who will help me strive into perfection, and that He wont give up on me no…

Being surrounded by and constantly bombarded with the endless variety of desirable things that this world offers, it is no wonder that we get knocked off centre and are left with feelings of anxiety and incompleteness. In a desperate but futile attempt to try to have it all (all at once) we over-indulge and binge on all that appears to be good and attractive. In the process of trying to secure the thing that we equate with pleasure, we inevitably find that fulfilment is not forthcoming.
To get the most out of a thing, to derive maximum enjoyment and pleasure, it is rarely necessary to go to the trouble of actually, physically acquiring it. What is needed is to alter ones perspective and to learn how to enjoy more rather than to necessarily have more.
If you find yourself in a state of unhealthy wanting or a feeling of lack…

Loved this post – thought it so true.
I have no idea who said that first, that youth is wasted on the young. But, I do think it is true. My most favourite time of my life – thus far – is from the time hubby and I met, to about eight or nine years into our marriage. I loved meeting hubby, I loved our courtship and getting to know him, I loved our wedding and I loved the first couple of years of marriage. Not that I’m not enjoying being married now – because I do – but those first couple of years were stress free and fun and were filled with so much anticipation of what the future could hold and what we could accomplish. We had fun with each other and we had a fun marriage. I really miss how things were back then. Now – well, now we’re all grown up. Worse than becoming…

I really wish we could all do more to save the Rhinos – this is our children’s heritage we’re talking about here.
As you know, our Rhinos are in mortal danger. Literally.
According to Rhino Lifeline South Africa,
“South Africa is losing an average of two rhino every three days. This crisis is the most significant conservation issue the country has faced. South Africa is custodian to most of the world’s remaining rhino. We are the rhino’s last stand.”
And according to IOL,
“Johannesburg – South Africa is heading for a new world record – and it’s nothing to be proud of.
Rhino experts warned on Monday that if the current rate of poaching continued until December, poachers were likely to set a new world record of almost 1 000 rhino killings in South Africa in a single year.
The expectation is based on the fact that at least 446 rhino have been killed in the first six months of the year.
This estimate of between 900 to 1…
