Nosebleeds and Airports

It is that time again – flying all over the country...once again. This time I'm heading for Jo'burg! I'm sitting in the Spur with...a nose try to have breakfast while your nose is bleeding (trust me – it's NOT fun) reminded me of the days when i was a 'litee" and i did not want to eat beatroot because everything turned the colour red on the plate...well...fortunately i stopped the blood from landing on my plate, but i had to run for the toilets to counter this bloody nose...(no pun intended). It was rather i was in the men's toilet (and my nose just didn't want to stop) – i had the vision of actually going up to a lady and asking for a tampon – do you know that they say it will stop a nosebleed in no time!?! Ha ha – i know – you're laughing now, but it's the truth...fortunately it stopped in the nick of time – but just imagine how funny that would have been in an airport terminal!

So here i am – stomach full of bacon, eggs, mushrooms and pork sausages – enjoying the simple pleasures of life topped of with 2 cups of coffee at 7:38am. God has been so faithful, and i am so privileged to be a part of His story and to be called a child of God! Last night i had to lead Praise and Worship, and God's presence i felt so strongly – it still baffles me that i can have a living relationship with our heavenly father! WOW!!!! I am not sure what all the stuff is that God has planned for the future, but if we put our confidence and trust in Him – what can go wrong?


"Oh the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, mediating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do! V6: For the Lord watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction"


I want to be that tree near the river! An awesome reminder that we serve the ONE and ONLY LIVING God and we need to keep drawing close to him – He is Holy, Righteous, Faithful to the end, Saviour, Healer, Redeemer & BEST Friend!
