THE BOOK OF ACTS

MURDER MEADOW “During this time Peter stood up in the company — there were about one hundred and twenty in the room at that time — and said, “Friends, long ago the Holy Spirit spoke through David regarding Judas, who became the guide of those arresting Jesus. That Scripture had to be fulfilled and now has been. Judas was one …Continue reading →

IN THIS FOR GOOD  “So they left the mountain called Olives and returned to Jerusalem. It was a little over a half a mile. They went to the upper room they had been using as a meeting place: Peter, James, John, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James, son of Alpheus, Simon the Zealot, Judas, son of James. “They agreed they …Continue reading →

HIS LAST WORDS “These were His last words. As they watched, He was taken up and disappeared in a cloud. They stood there staring into the empty sky. Suddenly two men appeared — in white robes! They said, ‘You Galileans! — why do you just stand here looking up to an empty sky? This very Jesus who was taken up …Continue reading →

TIMING IS THE FATHER’S BUSINESS “When they were together for the last time, they asked, ‘Master, are you going to restore the kingdom to Israel now? Is this the time?’ “He told them, ‘You don’t get to know the time. Timing is the Father’s business. What you’ll get is the Holy Spirit.  And when the Holy Spirit comes on you, …Continue reading →

THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER  “As they met and ate meals together, He told them that they were on no account to leave Jerusalem but ‘must wait for what the Father promised: the promise you heard from me. John baptised you in water; you will be baptised in the Holy Spirit. And soon.’” Acts 1:4-5 (The Message) Finally, at last, …Continue reading →

THE BOOK OF ACTS

CHAPTER 1 WHAT NOW? “Dear Theophilus, in the first volume of this book I wrote on everything that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day He said goodbye to the apostles, the ones He had chosen through the Holy Spirit, and was taken up to heaven. After His death He presented Himself alive in many different settings over …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – MISTRUST

Molly, my two-year-old “worsie”, has a severe allergy problem. What a struggle to find out what is causing her itching, scratching, biting, licking behaviour! My heart goes out to her in her distress. Now, Molly is used to being spoiled. She believes that she is entitled to a tidbit of everything I eat. Of course, I taught her this habit …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – ALLERGIES

Molly has developed a skin condition which the vet and I are still trying to identify and treat. She has an allergic reaction to something, but the question is….what? It could be from the environment or from her food. When it’s really bad, the poor little thing scratches and licks continually and she breaks out in a nasty rash. She …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – NEUTRALISING THE ENEMY

When Molly and I began our daily walks, I noticed that she regarded every passer-by; jogger, cyclist, pedestrian, dog walker, employee from the nearby supermarket, casual visitor from out-of-town, and even the guard dogs in the properties on the way, as potential enemies. She would “see them off”, big or small, with a flurry of barks and yelps. However, as …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – TRANSFORMED

When play is done for the day, toilet parade and garden inspection over and she feels mellow and sleepy, Molly loves to lie on my lap with her head on my tummy and gaze into my face with complete adoration in her soft brown eyes. I always respond with words like, “You are so beautiful. You are so sweet. You …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – RETURN

I recently took a trip to Johannesburg to visit my son and daughter-in-law for a few days. I arranged with a friend to “dog-sit” Molly rather than put her in the kennels. My friend happens to have a nine-month-old dachshund puppy who is great friends with my Molly. Molly has an exaggerated maternal instinct although she has not had puppies …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – GAZING

How many times does Molly lie on my lap and gaze intently at me, her little brown eyes fastened on my face with pure adoration shining from them! Molly is now almost two years old, reckoned to be an adult in dog years. She still does naughty things sometimes. I have been training her to come to me when I …Continue reading →

A LIVING HOPE

“Hopefully” – this word comes up regularly from our favourite sports captains when they review the match. What do they mean? They are full of hope that they will do better next time or win the next game, or win the World Cup or whatever. It’s always about the next time but it’s always uncertain. “Hope” is also a Bible …Continue reading →

FORGIVENESS – A TRUE STORY  

The scene is a Truth and Reconciliation courtroom in South Africa.   A frail black woman rises slowly to her feet. She is something over 70 years of age. Facing across the room are several white security police officers, one of whom, Mr van der Broek, has just been tried and found implicated in the murders of both the woman’s son …Continue reading →
