It is so quick to make and the flavours are so vibrant.

·    2 thin pork chops
·    juice and zest of half a lemon
·    1 heaped tsp paprika

·    300g coucous
·    350ml chicken stock

·    fresh or dried basil

How to make Paprika Pork and Pepper Couscous

Marinade the pork chops in a mixture of the lemon juice, zest, paprika and a spoonful of the roasted pepper oil

In the meantime, slice the roasted peppers and add to a bowl with the couscous
Pour in the stock, cover with a plate and leave for about 5 minutes.
Fluff it up with a fork and mix in the herbs.

I am a KEPT woman

I Am a 'KEPT' Woman!
You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind,
But GOD KEPT me sane. (Isa. 26:3)

There were times when I thought I could go on no longer,
But the LORD KEPT me moving. (Gen 28:15)

At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD KEPT my mouth shut. (Psa. 13)

Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough,
But God has proved Himself over and over by supplying all needs(Matt. 6:25 -34)

When I thought I would fall, HE KEPT me up..
When I thought I was weak, HE KEPT me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)

I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me!
I'm blessed to be 'KEPT.'

Are you...or do you know a 'KEPT' woman ?
If so pass it on to her to let her know she is 'KEPT'

I'm KEPT by the Love and Grace of God!
I am indeed a 'KEPT' woman and praise God for it!
Hope you can share this with other KEPT women!

God does

God Does

When you feel unlovable, unworthy, and unclean,
when you think that no one can heal you,
Remember, Friend, God Can.

When you think that you are unforgivable
for your guilt and your shame,
Remember, Friend, God Can.

When you think that all is hidden,
and no one can see within,
Remember, Friend, God Can.

And when you have reached the bottom,
And you think that no one can hear,
Remember, my dear friend, God Can.

And when you think that no one can love,
the real person deep inside of you,
Remember, my dear friend, God Does!

Fish with a transparent head

Fish With Transparent Head, "Barrel" Eyes

With a head like a fighter-plane cockpit, a Pacific barreleye fish shows off its highly sensitive,
barrel-like eyes--topped by green, orblike structures.

The fish, discovered alive in the deep water off California's central coast by the Monterey Bay
Aquarium Research Institute, is the first specimen of its kind to be found with its soft transparent dome intact.

The 6-inch (15-centimeter) barreleye (Macropinna microstoma) had been known since 1939,
but only from mangled specimens dragged to the surface by nets.

The beady bits on the front of the Pacific barreleye fish in this picture, aren't eyes but smell organs.

The grayish, barrel-like eyes are beneath the green domes, which may filter light.
In this picture the eyes are pointing upward--the better to see prey above in the darkness of the barreleye's deep-sea home.

Since the eyes are upright tubes, "it just looked like [they only] looked straight up.
But by watc…

26 Lewensfeite


1. Die ego van 'n trouman is so dun soos 'n membraan. Bly
weg van 'n man met 'n ego wat nog dunner is. Telkens wanneer die
pieperige ego'tjie skeur, gaan die eienaar jou verantwoordelik hou vir
lyding en verlies aan lewensgehalte. 

2. Moenie oorhaastig verloof raak of trou nie. As dit ewige
liefde is gaan hy nie toelaat dat iemand anders hom binne die volgende
ses maande opraap, ontvoer of blywend betower nie. 

3. Vroue wat nie trou nie, het hul redes. Gelukkig vir die
mansgeslag is die vrouens te diskreet om dit aan die hele wereld bekend
te maak. 

4. Wanneer aanneemkinders op hulle aanneemouers se harte
trap, is dit nie omdat hulle aanneemkinders is nie, dit is omdat hulle
kinders is. 

5. Jou bejaarde ouers se harte is so broos en breekbaar
soos hulle heupe.

Dear God

Dear God,

So far today, I've done all right.
I haven't gossiped.
I haven't lost my temper.
I haven't lied or cheated.
I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish or overindulgent.

I'm very thankful for that.
But in a few minutes, Lord,
I'm going to get out of bed;
and from then on,
I'm probably going to need a lot more help.
