Colin's Wise Wednesday - 15th August 2018

When I sat down on this cold Saturday morning after our FATHERS meeting where we are going through a Life Apps series by Andy Stanley and Jeff Henderson, I intended doing a summary for our FATHERS group on The Encouraging App. Once again God changed my mind and said maybe our Wednesday readers might also be interested in what we heard and discussed this morning.  So here we are and I hope and pray that God will talk to us all through this sharing:

Is It Wednesday? Yes, then it must be time again for me to share what’s on my mind with you:

But if Christ lives in you, the Spirit is life for you because you have been put right with God. . .

It’s Wednesday here we go again.
A sombre message today, one that is close to my heart. Once again what I had thought of sharing with you changed this morning. Please bear with me. After snuggling back into a warm bed this morning after making Lyn a cup of tea (for a change!) Just Jinger’s song  “What He Means” (If there grace in this world) was playing on the radio. As I lay there “as snug as a bug in a rug” listening to the words of the song my thoughts went out to what I had planned for today. It was to deliver food parcels, together with Mike, to the squatter camps in Tembisa.  Food parcels that are sponsored by Hillside and packed by committed congregants. In 2011 there were nearly 500 000 people in Tembisa … and now?  How many of those people have electricity to make a cup of tea, how many of those 500 000 have got beds to snuggle into?  Our food parcels give 1440 meals … a small percentage of those who are hungry.

Madzinyo’s Warthog Kill - 24 July 2018
To say that the weather has been a little miserable over the past week here in the Greater Kruger Park would be a little bit of an understatement. The clouds swallowed up the sun’s warmth whenever it tried to give a helping hand. The cold front has brought temperatures right down to single figures, but worst of all was the blustery wind.
 
To show that you are His sons and daughters, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who cries out, “Father, my Father.”   Galatians 4 : 6
 

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 25th July 2018

This morning when contemplating what God wanted me to share I decided that I would pour a cup of coffee and go and sit in the lounge, in the sun, and listen to some praise songs to get my mind in order. While getting in the right frame of mind all MY other ideas faded and God’s idea, of just sharing some extracts of the first 3 songs  I was listening to, came through.  I pray that you will feel God’s presence as you read His message below.

My prayer is that our fellowship with you as believers will bring about a deeper understanding of every blessing which we have in our life in union with Christ.

Wow these Wednesdays come around faster and faster as God leads me to share with you.

In my last Week In Pictures I was bemoaning the fact that we had yet to see our new lion cubs this, naturally, that led to their first appearance on the very same afternoon that the blog post was published! I am very happy to report that the last week has provided some great viewing of the two young cubs and the two Zebenine lionesses.
 
Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps His promise, and He will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm;       1 Corinthians 10 : 13

Polo’s eyes seem to reflect the  joy in his heart as he runs to collect a ball that I have thrown.  Chad captures this special moment as we take our neighbors dog for a run in the open fields.

In a previous blog, we examined how adjusting the lens’s aperture helps determine the final exposure of an image. But if you recall the exposure triangle from earlier on in this series, there was a third element that was vital for completing the exposure puzzle. Today’s blog will focus on this very factor. It is,  of course, the ISO settings of the camera.
 
God is to be trusted, the God who called you to have fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
