IS JY DEEL VAN DIE BROMVOËL-FAMILIE ?

Sonder dat mens dit agterkom kan jy maklik in ʼn bromvoël ontaard, ʼn klakous van die eerste water. En in die laaste tyd, is daar oënskynlik genoegsame redes om te kla in Suid-Afrika, en tog: kla jy nie dalk met ʼn witbrood onder die arm nie? En wil die Here hê ons moet kla? As ek my klalysie ondersoek dan kla ek oor die misdaad, te min reën, te veel reën, die petrolprys, die dokter wat my laat wag, die baie karre op die pad en die voorgestelde tolgelde op die snelweg.

Tot ek gister ʼn e-pos van iemand uit China kry met die volgende statistiek (ek gee dit soos wat ek dit gekry het) wat sê dat indien ʼn mens die wêreldbevolkings proporsioneel tot ʼn 100 verminder sal 80 mense brandarm en 70 ongeletterd wees met net 1 gegradueerde. En as jy ʼn bankrekening het, en ʼn paar munte in jou sak, is jy een van agt bevoorregtes uit die 100. Toe begin ek weer dink. As jy boonop nog nie die verskrikking van ʼn oorlog meegemaak het, die binnekant van ʼn oorvol tronk of die ellende van hongersnood ervaar het nie, is jy beter af as 500 miljoen ander mense. En as jy ongehinderd jou kerk mag bywoon is jy geseënd bo 3 biljoen ander. Met ʼn yskas in jou huis, ʼn dak oor jou kop, ʼn bed en klere vir jou lyf is jy ryker as 71% van die wêreld se bevolking en as jy nou die stukkie kan lees is jy meer bevoorreg as twee biljoen ander. Net vir in geval jy vandag weer wou brom! ( Johann Symington)

IN GESPREK MET JESUS

Here, elke keer wanneer ek wil ophou tel aan my seëninge, word ek weer gewys op ander wie se lot baie swaarder as myne is. Dankie vir U uitsonderlike seën aan my, ook al brom ek.

10 things to learn from Japan

 
10 things to learn from Japan

1. THE CALM
Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has
been dignified with calm acceptance.
2. THE DIGNITY
Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude
gesture.
3. THE ABILITY
The incredible architects, for instance. Most buildings swayed but
didn't fall.
4. THE GRACE
People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could
get something.
5. THE ORDER
No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just
understanding.
6. THE SACRIFICE
Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will
they ever be repaid?
7. THE TENDERNESS
Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared
for the weak.
8. THE TRAINING
The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did
just that.
9. THE MEDIA
They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No sensationalism.
Only calm reporting.
10. THE CONSCIENCE
When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the
shelves and left quietly.

Manger Scene

Our children were having fun setting up and the hours or joy rearranging all

of the items in the manger scene. (It was odd to see Barbie kneeling at the

manger, but somehow appropriate).

 

When evening came and the children off preparing for bed, I looked at their

final rendition.  Every item was there, in the correct place.  But behind

the cattle, in the edge of the crèche, was an action figure in a suit of

armor with an uplifted sword. He had a piece of duct tape covering his face

. . it really made no sense to me.

 

Tucking the kids into bed, I commented on how fun it was to remember the

Christmas story thru the manger scene.  Then I casually asked by 7-year old

about this odd, hidden character.

 

In a quiet voice he told me that he had put him in there to guard baby

Jesus, and that he was really part of the Christmas story anyway.  When I

asked exactly HOW he was in the story, my son said, "He's the silent

knight".

 

  Makes sense to me.

Elke uur van die horlosie het 'n boodskap

 

Elke uur van die horlosie het 'n boodskap:

1 UUR sê vir my ek leef net een maal en daarom moet ek die lewe waardeer en my tyd hier op aarde reg gebruik.

2 UUR sê ek het twee ouers wat ek moet eer en liefhê en gehoorsaam.

3 UUR herinner my aan die Drie-enige God wat ek met my hele hart moet dien.

4 UUR herinner my aan die vier windstreke en dat waar ek ook al mag gaan ek die Hemel se kompas (die Bybel) nodig het om vir my rigting aan te dui.

5 UUR dui op die vyf vingers aan elke hand waarmee ek moet werk om my brood eerlik te verdien en diensbaar moet wees vir die Here.

6 UUR sê vir my ek moet my pligte getrou nakom en ses dae van die week werk.

7 UUR sê vir my dat ek op die sewende dag moet rus.

8 UUR laat my dink aan die agt siele in Noag se ark wat in die sondvloed behoue gebly het, en dat ek net so behoue sal bly as ek by Christus skuiling soek.

9 UUR herinner my aan die nege melaatses wat nie
Teruggekom het om die Here te bedank nadat hulle gesond geword het nie en maan my om dankbaar te wees vir al die goeie dinge wat ek uit Sy hand ontvang.

10 UUR herinner my aan tien jong meisies waarvan vyf nie gereed was toe die bruidegom gekom het nie en waarsku my om nie so dwaas soos hulle te wees nie.

11 UUR herinner my aan so baie mense wat tot elfder uur uitstel om hulle te bekeer en dan onverwags te sterwe kom. Dit maan my om altyd gereed te wees om die Here te ontmoet.

12  UUR sê vir my die genadetyd is haas verby. Om
Middernag kom die Bruidegom en ek moet sorg dat ek nie agterbly as Hy Sy kinders kom haal nie.




Elke tik van die horlosie. Elke klop van die hart bied 'n geleentheid. Gebruik dit tot eer van die Here!

EK IS DIE HERE JOU GOD, EK VAT JOU HAND


Jes 41:13

Is daar ‘n tekort in jou lewe?
EK vat jou hand –
Niks sal jou ontbreek nie.
Is jy uitgeput en moeg na siel en liggaam?
EK vat jou hand
En lei jou na waters waar rus is.
Ek verkwik jou siel.
Sit jy vasgevang in die diepste duisternis?
Kyk, EK is met jou -
EK vat jou hand, en lei jou die lig in.
Is jou hart in stukke gebreek?
Sit jy bedroef en moedeloos langs die pad,
Nie lus om een tree verder te gee nie?
Kom, vat  my Hand,
En stap saam met my die onbekende toekoms in.
Kyk, EK vat jou hand,
En sal jou nooit begewe of verlaat nie.

FRANCIS DRAKE'S PRAYER

 
 FRANCIS DRAKE'S PRAYER
 
Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we dreamed too little,
Because we sailed too close to the shore.
 
Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life!!
 
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.
 
Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wilder seas
Where storm will show Your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.
 
We ask You to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push us in the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love.
This we ask in the name of our
Captain, who is Jesus Christ.
 
Amen.

As 1 Korintiërs 13 net vir Mammas geskryf was.....




As 1  Korintiërs 13 net vir Mammas geskryf was.....

Al sou mamma  die mooiste huis besit en die lekkerste etes vir ons voorberei,
Maar dit nie met
liefde doen nie,
Dan is dit so waardeloos soos 'n 
leë kastrol.

Al is mamma  die
besigste mamma op die Beheerraad
En koop vir my eendag die 
duurste sporttoerusting,
Maar mamma het nie die
tyd om my langs  die sportveld aan te spoor nie,
Dan sal dit my niks baat  nie.

Al koop  mamma 'n
kamer vol van die duurste opvoedkundige speelgoed
En  betaal sakke vol geld vir
ekstra klasse,
Maar mamma sit nie ook  self by my en speel of sukkel met die
skoolwerk nie,
Dan sal dit  my niks baat nie.

'n 
Liefdevolle mamma is geduldig met my,
Sy Tel maar partykeer my 
speelgoed en klere op.
'n
Liefdevolle mamma is lankmoedig en  vriendelik,
Sy laai haar motor maar somtyds vol
kletsende,
Bakleiende,
swetende skoolkinders.

Mamma's 
vergelyk nie hul kinders met ander kinders nie en is nie verwaand  oor prestasies nie.
Mamma's
bedek skrape met liefde en pleisters  en glo in my,
Hoop net die beste vir my en verdra die klaery en  kritiek.

My gewasde en gestrykte wasgoed word weer
vuil en 'n netjies huis weer  deurmekaar.......
Maar 'n
opregte drukkie en 'n intieme gesprek  sal vir altyd in my kinderhartjie bly.

Eendag sal  ons huis en sy binnekant tot niet gaan,

Maar
mamma en ons gesin se siele sal ondersoek word.

Toe
mamma  nog 'n jong meisie was,
Was mamma gesteld op mamma se mooi  voorkoms en aardse besittings,
Maar noudat mamma
'n MA is, het ons kinders die  belangrikste geword.
Een van die dae kyk mamma miskien vas in 'n  opstandige tienergesig,
Maar eendag as ek groot geword het,
Sal ek  die vrugte pluk van die
LIEFDE wat mamma in my kleintyd gesaai het.

En nou bly, 
AANDAG, GEDULD en LIEFDE, hierdie drie,
Maar die  waardevolste hiervan is die onvoorwaardelike
LIEFDE van 'n mamma!





Clever woman, huh



A Woman was out golfing one day when she hit the ball into the woods.

She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog in a trap.

The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will grant you three wishes."

The woman freed the frog, and the frog said, "Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes.

Whatever you wish for, your husband will get times ten!"

The woman said, "That's okay."

For her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

The frog warned her, "You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis whom women will flock to".

The woman replied, "That's okay, because I will be the most beautiful woman and he will have eyes only for me."

So, KAZAM-she's the most beautiful woman in the world!

For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world.

The frog said, "That will make your husband the richest man in the world. And he will be ten times richer than you."

The woman said, "That's okay, because what's mine is his and what's his is mine."

So, KAZAM-she's the richest woman in the world!

The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered, "I'd like a mild heart attack."


Moral of the story: Women are clever. Don't mess with them.



Attention female readers : This is the end of the joke for you. Stop here and continue feeling good.

Male readers: Please scroll down.

The man had a heart attack ten times milder than his wife ..



Moral of the story: Women are really dumb but think they're really smart.



Let them continue to think that way and just enjoy the show



PS: If you are a woman and are still reading this; it only goes to show that women never listen!!!



Forward this to all the guys for a good laugh, and to all the ladies who have a good sense of humour.

Thank you Erika for sharing.

Mind Travel

 

I've a mind to travel over summer's fun
The holiday so neat,
How we surfed the delightful days
Of our crazy mid-year treat.

Each ice-cream lemonade so sweet
Was relished to the max,
The afternoons of sunbathing
In the searing heat... relax.

So, if vacation is all over
Then is the temperature going to cool,
For we need the weather to be nice
If we must go back to school.

The brain just will not function
When it's boiling in the shade,
Can't I learn of buoyancy and kinetics
If in the pool I stay.

I might enjoy the novels more
While laying in the sun,
And then what study of the stars
When every day is done.

I could dissect the insects
That join me in the swim,
With all that hands on learning
A trophy I would win.

But if curiosity made the cat vamoose
Then forget the heat, I'll stay real calm,
And just imagine school is cool
Then as the teachers pet,
I'll be safe from any harm.

Mooi vrou

 

 'n Mooi vrou soos jy is soos gras, groei altyd weer nuut uit as mense dit vertrap het.

Soos fonteinwater, altyd weer helder, NIEMAND kry dit reg om sy modderspore vir altyd daarin te laat nie.
Soos rooidag se mooi na die donker nag, so staan sy op, en geen storm kan dit bedreig nie.
Soos 'n goeie boom lewer sy goeie vrugte met elke woord wat sy s? - geen gogga kan dit wegvreet nie.

Stuur dit vir 'n mooi vrou, ek het so pas.

Liewe Vader,
Beskerm asseblief vandag my vriendin, hou haar veilig onder U vlerk, en dankie vir die geleentheid wat ek vandag het om vir haar te kan vertel dat sySPESIAAL en KOSBAAR is. Seën haar en almal wat haar aangaan. Seën haar ook in haar werk en vir die Vrou wat sy is. AMEN

My Angel's Face


I saw an angel one dark night,
she walked right in my door.
From heavenly places she came nigh
and was standing on my floor.

She gently bid a sweet hello,
I said "What are you doing here?"
She smiled so softly toward my way,
and said "I'm here to help you, Dear."
God sent me to watch over you,
for when you cannot see,
there's plenty here for me to do
to help you to be free.

And so, I know my angel waits,
in many silent little places.
Ready to guide me to my fate
my angel with so many faces.
