Colin's Wise Wednesday - 14th November 2018

Another Wednesday is upon us and after last week’s soul searching I thought that I would talk about our helper, our advocate the Holy Spirit.

And just like that, it's November! Where exactly did this year go? However, when the weeks that are ticked off are as special as the one that just passed at Tanda Tula Safari Camp, we cannot really have any complaints.
 

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 31st October 2018

This Wednesday I am going to share a few thoughts on Grace. I have being struggling for some time to come to grips with the meaning of grace that will resonate within me and would love to share some of the readings and my own experience that have helped me along the way. Please bear in mind that I am no theological wizard I’m just an old sinner sharing my Christian walk. Sharing my walk is something I always wanted to do and with the encouragement of Nicole and Lyn, God’s prompting and the readers “likes” (thanks sooooo much) I am doing just that.
 
My sheep listen to My voice; I know them and they follow Me.      I give them eternal life, and they shall never die. No one can snatch them away from Me.

If I had one complaint this week, it was that I didn’t see a wolf. Okay, I know they are not found in South Africa, but based on the conditions that we experienced for most of the week, I was convinced that there was a big bad wolf huffing and puffing, trying to blow my house down! To say it was a week of windy conditions would be a slight understatement. For most of the past week, we have had to batten down the hatches, pull out the blankets and blast the Land Rover’s heater in order to keep warm...in fairness, I was probably the only one that benefited from the latter though! Despite the less than ideal conditions, the game viewing remained very good as we moved one week closer to the green season. Sadly, only a few more millimetres of rain fell this week, but it can’t be too long now before our first proper rains arrive.

Another Wednesday another day to share with you what is happening in my life and hope and pray that you can relate to it.

But those who proclaim God’s message speak to people and give them help, encouragement and comfort.
 

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 17th October 2018

Do you remember last week I mentioned we were in the bush and while I was writing our devotion the rest of family and our close friends from the UK were playing card monopoly? Later one of our friends Claire who left South Africa about 19 years ago wrote a poem while sitting on the patio in the bush.

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 10th October 2018

I am truly blessed, another Wednesday is upon us and I am once again writing this devotion from the bush. You will notice the inspiration of the bush coming through in what I am sharing. As I write the family are around the table on the patio playing Monopoly Deal, a card version of the “old monopoly” and laughing away the afternoon before we start our sundowners drive and then gaze at the night sky with stars that shine like diamonds.

A WEEK OF DETAIL - 5 October 2018
While Chad is off enjoying some leave we share with you his colleague, Luke Street's experiences this last week....
 
Jesus answered him, “Whoever loves Me will obey My teaching. My Father will love him, and My Father and I will come to Him and live with Him.
 

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 3rd October 2018

Here we go again, must be Wednesday, but this time our message is in the words of a song “Need” by Richard Pratt from CrossRoad and features on their new album called “There’s a Light”. A special thank you to both Richard Pratt and Luke Powell who have given me the go ahead to use this song for our devotion. Luke also gave me a link to a discussion that he and Richard had concerning the background under which this song was written, very interesting:  https://crossroadchristianband.bandcamp.com/track/need-2

For the first time in a long while we have had a week that was not dominated by the elephants in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. Instead, the Tanda Tula guests have been absolutely spoilt with some fantastic lion sightings over the past week, as can be seen by their prevalence in the images posted here!
