Soos gewoonlik dink ek oor my dag se gebeure en skielik voel ek hartseer

….meisiemens jy is nie op my Facebook nie maar ek hoop dat iemand jou eendag sal kan help sien:
Jy is nog jonk en ek is veel ouer….almal kan dit sien….dat vriendelikheid ens jou egter so ontsenu day jy die “obvious” moet uitwys spreek boekdele oor jou onsekerheid.

Eers was ek omgekrap en toe besef ek weereens gebroke mense probeer altyd om ander te breek….mens oorleef nie en bly glimlag soos ek as jy so maklik breek nie…

Dankie Here vir U Genade – Thank You Lord for Your Grace

As ek so luister en lees na soveel mensies wat soveel seer het….en so sukkel om te laat gaan van die seer wat ander hul aangedoen het….wat sukkel om nie elke nuwe mens wat hul ontmoet deur die gebreekte bril van ander se oortredings teen hulle te sien nie maar eerder elkeen deur vars nuwe oë te sien kan ek nie anders nie as om net weereens te besef hoe Groot en Wyd en Diep die Hemelse Vader se genade is….Dankie Here dat U my deur U genade nog elke keer na die seer weereens die moed gee om met ‘n oop hart en gemoed nuwe mensies te ontmoet en elkeen ‘n skoon kans te gee om hulself te wees….dankie ook vir die lewenslesse wat my leer om oop oë in die lewe rond te loop en te sien waar ander ‘n mens probeer bedrieg…dankie dat uit al die seer van my verlede ek iets goed gekry het…om te kan onderskei tussen waarheid en leuens….ek kan net hoop dat ek dit al meer sal reg kry om te onderskei maar dat ek eerder iemand ‘n kans sal gee as om hul weg te stoot sonder ‘n rede.

When I listen and read about all the people who are still so hurt…..and are struggling to let go of past hurts caused by people from their past….they are struggling not to see new people they meet through the broken spectacles of past hurts, struggling to see new people through fresh eyes I can only recognise again how Great and Deep and Wide God’s Mercy and Grace is…..Thank you Lord for enabling me by your grace and mercy to open up my heart again each time after being hurt to meet new people and allow them to show me who they are….thank you also for the ability to recognise truth and lies….that from all the hurt in my past I have this one gift…to discern between truth and lies (sometimes much easier than others) ….I can only hope that I will get better at discerning the difference and rather give someone an opportunity than to push people away without a real reason….

RIP Madiba (Nelson Mandela)

RIP Madiba….you were one of a few leaders I truly respect.

May your latter legacy of peace, courage & forgiveness live on and inspire many!

As a young girl my sister (Taryn) and I were waitresses at Madiba’s inauguration, you and Bishop Tutu took the time to greet us and I will always remember that.

You are a man that has inspired me….in a strange time when people were still unsure, I read your book “Long Walk to Freedom” it gave my insight and admiration for you…..in ways it changed me and also shaped me.

Unfortunately we did not all get the opportunity to let you know in person what a difference you made, but I know that from the life beyond all such things become clear.  It reminds me of the lyrics to a song by Ray Boltz – Thank you http://www.metrolyrics.com/thank-you-lyrics-ray-boltz.html

Thank you Madiba for letting us see and live that forgiveness is truly life changing for all.

Help a young boy (11 yr) acheive a dream – Please?

22 11 2013

Hi All!

I don’t often ask for assistance or donations but this time I am…

Whether you are family or a friend in SA or abroad, your donation will help a young boy see at least one dream fulfilled.

My eldest sister, Alet En Fanie Hattingh’s youngest – Heinz Hattingh (11yr) – has been selected as part of the SA NMA/ISKA Team to attend the ISKA World Championships in Orlando USA in July 2014!!  165 candidates have been selected but there are only 120 spaces to attend.

In order for him to go we need to raise funds for him (and his dad as he can’t go alone) to get to the championships.  We need to raise R60,000 of which and amount of R6000 needs to be collected by 13 Dec 2013

If you can help and you are willing please contact me via inbox or e-mail or my sister Alet Hattingh 🙂

You can have a look at http://www.kickboxing.co.za and we also have the official letter if you would like to see it 🙂

The young boy who's dreams you can help come true
