A Woman of Inner Beauty


Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.  1 Peter 3:3-4 Have you ever noticed a… Continue reading A Woman of Inner Beauty

Gratitude – 21st January 2016


My husband is in Cape Town on business – he left yesterday and will be back tomorrow.  That man has worked so hard since his retrenchment to try keep us afloat financially.  And in a climate where businesses cannot employ white males, or even contract to businesses that are NOT BEE (Black Economic Empowerment) compliant, he… Continue reading Gratitude – 21st January 2016

The Father of all Lies


To my love, On Sunday you mentioned how much our marriage has changed – and that has resulted in the often high levels of stress and tension between the two of us.  And so, the whole of Sunday and Monday (I even dreamt about this on Sunday night), I have thought of writing to you,… Continue reading The Father of all Lies

My dreams…


This morning I was reading an article by Joyce Meyer and in it she was saying that if we can’t see it in our minds – our dreams, our desires, our wishes, it’s probably not going to happen. We need to be able to see it, visualise it, pray to God about it and then leave it in His loving hands. So, I thought… what is it exactly that I dream about, pray to God about, and need to learn to trust Him for?

And isn’t that what they tell us in any self-help book – that you are not going to achieve anything until you can visualise it, and then internalize that you become what you see. If you can’t see, you can’t believe in it. If you can’t believe in it, you can’t see it actually happening in your life. If you can’t see it happening in your life, you can’t become it.

Cultivating Gratitude and Positive Thinking!


Why me?  There are often times I ask myself, Why do I battle with anxiety?  Why have I gone through these last terrible years?  Am I normal?  Am I the only one? And while I can see how my past has allowed the pieces of the puzzle to fit together in such a way that… Continue reading Cultivating Gratitude and Positive Thinking!

Overcoming anxiety


Every now and then, I come across a post that fits in so nicely with battling anxiety – and this one from Women Abiding is one of them.  Although she is speaking about envy, it is so pertinent to battling anxiety I just had to share – although I have changed it to be more… Continue reading Overcoming anxiety

Was I out of line?


This is an email I wrote to my mother (on response to an email received from her) – for the background to this email, read here: Hi, I am really under a lot of pressure at work, so I don’t really have the time to respond to the depth that I would like to.  So, just a… Continue reading Was I out of line?
