In Christís Love,
Through the years, I have had a love/hate relationship with this woman named Barbara. A beautiful woman from the inside out she is. I learned many wonderful lessons from her. She carried with her what some may not understand, Christís love.
I say it was a love/hate relationship because I, me, being unable in those times to understand the depth of her walk with Jesus. Oh, I thought I could, but my heart was not open
It al started at the end of last year coming towards then end of the term (end of november almost)
Everything that is written below is from that time. It is a letter that I wrote to Benjamin O'Donnel, who is one of my best friends over the internet. It should explain the most important reasons. I will leave it exactly as it was written. I must make it clear that most of it has changed in my own mind since then. It was just a passing phase, but it did yield some good things:
Ek voel net lus om vandag bietjie in my blog te skryf, sommer te skryf oor hoe ek voel, jy weet, dit is mos goed om soms net hierdie goed uit te kry, of so sÍ almal
Daar is iets wat ek op die harde manier besig is om te leer en dit is dat mens in jou lewe woestyntye kry, soos die tye in die Bybel waar die volk in die woestyn rondgedwaal het of selfs die tyd wat Jesus ook in die woestyn versoek is. Ek is nou daar.
Maar wat het ek geleer, of is ek besig om te leer?

"Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with scoffers.
But they delight in doing everything the lord wants; day and night they think about his law.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season without fail. Their leaves never wither, and in all they do, they prosper."
Gen 42:29-38; 1 Cor 6:12-30; Mark 4:21-34
Notes: Returning from Egypt, the brothers tell their father of the demands placed on them, and why Simeon is not with them. They discover that all of them have had their silver returned, and Jacob refuses to allow them to return with Benjamin, for fear of losing him as well.
Outstanding passage: 29a, 35-6, 38
29 When they came to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan, they told him all that had happened to them.
