Think of all the people who live or ever lived on our planet...

Think of all the people who live or ever lived on our planet since the very beginning of time.

None of them is like you! What a miraculous thing is to be you! Nobody has the same combination of talents, abilities, sorrows and opportunities. No one has the same friends, family jokes or acquaintances. Nobody‘s finger prints are the same. No one has the same concerns or goals like you. No one! You are unique!

Accept and enjoy this uniqueness. You don‘t have to pretend to look more like other expect you to be. Don‘t be afraid to be different. No one in the world has the same things going on in his mind, soul, spirit as are going on in yours. It is a gift only to you. Treasure and share your uniqueness!

Nobody can speak your words. Nobody can smile your smile. No one can bring the same unique impact of you to another person.

Enjoy your uniqueness, let it flow out among your family and friends, all the people you meet.

Give yourself away and be inspired by the fact that you are UNIQUE!

The story inspires me...

An aging King realized that if he died he has no one to take over the throne. He decided to adopt a son. He launched a competition and 10 boys made it to the top. The King said to them, "I have one last test and whoever comes top will become my adopted son and heir to my throne."

He gave each boy a seed of corn and told them to take the seed home, plant and nurture it for 3 weeks.
The 10 boys took their seeds and ran home to plant their seeds. In onehome, the boy and his parents were sad when the seed failed to sprout. The boy had done everything but he failed. His friends advised him to buy a seed and plant it but his God fearing parents who had always taught him honesty refused.

The day came and the 10 boys went to the palace. All the 9 boys were successful. The King went to each boy asking – “Is that what came out of the seed I gave you?" And each boy said
"Yes, your majesty."
The King would nod and move down the line until the last boy in the line who was shaking with fear.
The King asked him - "What did you do with the seed I gave you?"

The boy said "I planted it and cared for it your majesty but it failed to sprout."
The King went to the throne with the boy and said, "I gave these boys boiled seeds and a boiled seed cannot sprout. If a King must have one quality, it must be honesty and only this boy passed the test.”

We live in a society where people will do anything for success. God sometimes does not give us things because He wants to teach us a lesson. How many people out there have achieved success the wrong way? How many people send their children to expensive schools and build houses, buy expensive cars with stolen money?

How many people are occupying top positions yet they stole the certificates?

How many people are successful out there at all costs? HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE CROWNED AS KINGS IN HEAVEN FOR BEING FAITHFUL UNTIL THE END? I PRAY THAT I BE FAITHFUL TILL THE END!!!

Please be faithful to God no matter what life throws at you, even if life gives you boiled seed.

Exhausted?


Ons Huis se vieringe...

Die Afrikaanse Christelike Vrouevereniging (ACVV) se Ons Huis, die tehuis vir bejaardes in Herlear, het op 14 Oktober hul 72ste verjaardag gevier.

Hulle het dit met 'n "High Tea" en 'n "Down Memory Lane-konsert" gevier.

Die tehuis het op 14 Oktober 1945 in 'n huis in Rosestraat ontstaan en in 1958 is die huidige gebou in Ariadne-rylaan in gebruik geneem.

Die tehuis se doelwit is om ouer persone se regte te bevorder en algehele versorging vanuit 'n holistiese oogpunt moontlik te maak.

'n Tweedehandse winkel is ook op die perseel geleë.

Hier kan behoeftige persone uit die gemeenskap, sowel as inwoners van die tehuis, baat vind.

Skenkings van tweedehandse klere kan by die tehuis in Ariadne-rylaan afgelewer word.

Word entoesiasties oor jou eie lewe!

Gelukkige mense het ‘n behoefte om ‘n verbintenis aan te gaan met iets groter as hulself. Dit is een manier om betekenis te vind in jou eie lewe.

Dink aan jouself as ‘n legkaartstukkie wat in pas in die groter legkaart van die lewe. Jy het ‘n spesifieke plek wat jy moet vul en net jou spesifieke vorm kan daardie plek vul.

Wanneer jy op jou plek in die lewe is, kom jy agter is jy deel van die groter prentjie. Jy is verbind aan iets groters as jou eie lewe.

Om verbind te wees aan iets groters as jou lewe gee nie net vir jou betekenis nie, dit skep ook ‘n nuwe entoesiasme! Nuwe energie.

So dikwels wens mense vir meer energie.

Die verlies aan energie is nie ‘n teken dat jy te veel doen nie, maar moontlik dat jy nie genoeg doen nie. Jy het dan so besig geraak in jou eie lewe dat jy jou verbintenis aan die groter prentjie afgeskeep het.

“Wanneer jy op jou plek in die lewe is, kom jy agter is jy deel van die groter prentjie. Jy is verbind aan iets groters as jou eie lewe.”

Gelukkige mense hou hul vebind aan iets groters as hulself en dit gee vir hulle energie en entoesiasme.

Mense wat entoesiasties is, hou nie terug nie. Dit is waarom hul anders optree en beter vaar as mense wat doodgewoon nie lus is om iets te doen nie. Het dit nie tyd geword dat jy weer entoesiasties sal raak oor jou plek in die lewe nie?

Veral as jy in ag neem watteer ongelooflike verskil jy nie in die wêreld kan maak nie.

Hier is die eienaardige – ‘n mens sou dink dat om nou met iets betrokke te raak net nog energie gaan vat.

Dit is nie waar nie. Toets dit.

Raak betrokke by iets waaroor jy entoesiasties is en jy sal vind dat jy meer energie het en nog boonop gelukkiger is ook.

Raak betrokke. Doen iets betekenisvol.

Dink helder. Doen die lewe.
