Lost & Found!

“For there is nothing lost, that may be found, if sought.”  Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene Have you ever lost something? I regularly lose things, particularly my IPad, phone, glasses and keys! Loss causes my emotions to range from frustration, anger, helplessness, despair and a deep sadness.  It was utterly ravishing.  To my nine year

The Christmas Tree!

We cousins were locked upstairs! The gate leading downstairs had been closed, preventing us from entering the lounge. Instead we gazed longingly at the shut door. We all knew what lay behind it. “I heard Father Christmas’s sleigh bells last night,” my baby sister, Megan, said excitedly, “and I woke up this morning and there

The Showering Angel!

There is so much need in the world. I sometimes look at the state of my town and people around me and heave a deep regretful sigh. Mark Booysen also saw the needs of those around him. He too heaved a deep regretful sigh. And decided to do something about it. Mark had been working

The Best of Hosts!

Predestination. Karma. Fate. Call it what you will. The Lord smiles as my life rolls in and out of its predestined plan. As a result of my fall from the stage, my life as an actress ended. What do I do now, I thought. Panic and terror about the future engulfed me. It was too much

Cycling out of the ashes!

I arrived in Cape Town for the ‘Argus’! No, don’t get me wrong. I wasn’t actually doing it. My sixteen year old nephew, Campbell and my two besties, B and Jans, were participating. My role was to support and cheer them along. The ‘Argus’ or Cape Town Cycle Tour as it is now called, covers

Peace, Love & Joy???

I love this carol. Strangely enough, I am tremendously stirred to hear it sung by a single voice. It somehow makes me truly listen to the words. The words of carols are about peace, love and joy. Every Christmas, year after year, they are sung in different countries, in different languages. And yet how much

…… and not a drop to drink!

It spurted upwards and out. The water jetted high into the air with an almost gleeful exuberance. It fell onto the grass and instantly rushed in every direction, glorying in it’s unrestrained freedom. The burst water main spewed the water out for the next two days with gusto. My mother was not impressed. Not only

A World Filled With Happiness!

I’d had an incredibly stressful few days. Mums was admitted to hospital. It was a terribly worrying time as the doctor sought a diagnosis. As you can imagine, my stress level rose considerably during those 4 days! Thankfully, diagnosis determined and three pints of blood later, Mums returned home. It was so wonderful seeing a

Getting into a State!!!

After my accident, whilst in a coma, Absa, set up an account for me. They generously deposited money into this and let it be known that it was available for public donations towards my medical expenses. Twenty-five years later, I am still banking with Absa! Recently I wrote to the Chief Financial Officer and I

Snatching Joy From The Jaws of Despair!

‘I believe the God who’s holding me up is bigger than my circumstances. And I’m going to enjoy the process of seeing how He works in what should be, otherwise, miserable, hard circumstances – may we find the joy that God has for us…..’ Philippians 1:12-26 My Mother has spent the past month in and
