Daar word op die oomblik in die kerk meer gepraat oor self-ontplooiing as oor self-opoffering.-Anon.......As ‘n kerk haar woorde begin devalueer, dan word die kerk ‘n ramp vir die volk. - K Schilder

Goeie wense vir 2009

Ek is nie juis 'n ou vir "nuwejaarsvoornemens" nie (het nie 'n goeie "track record" daarmee nie!)- Tog glo ek in die mag van die woord (Spreuke 18:21), daarom sal ek liewer vir elkeen wat hier lees, die mooie en die goeie wil toewens.... (Lees verder onder opmerkings)

“Mag jy altyd werk vir jou hande hê.
Mag jou beursie altyd ‘n muntstuk bevat.
Mag jy ‘n huis hê met ‘n venster waardeur die son skyn.
Mag daar altyd ‘n reënboog ná jou reënbui wees;
En mag die hand van jou vriend nooit te ver wees nie.
Mag God jou oë oopmaak vir jou naaste se nood; en mag Sy Blydskap altyd jou hart vul”.
(Ierse seënwens, uit “Die Groot Aanhalingsboek”).

Ek het hierdie mooi stuk van Melodie (Yf se ander helfte) gekry, wat ek wil vergroot en iewers opplak waar ek dit gereeld kan lees:

CLEANING HOUSE FOR 2009

Last Week I threw out worrying, it was getting old and in the way.

It kept me from being me; I couldn't do things God's way.

I threw out a book on MY PAST
(Didn't have time to read it anyway).

Replaced it with NEW GOALS, started reading it today.

I threw out hate and bad memories,
(Remember how I treasured them so)?

Got me a NEW PHILOSOPHY too, threw out the one from long ago.

Brought in some new books too, called I CAN, I WILL, and I MUST.

Threw out I might, I think and I ought.
WOW, you should've seen the dust.

I ran across an OLD FRIEND, I hadn't talked to in a while.

His name is JESUS, and I really like His style.

He helped me to do some cleaning and added some things Himself.

Like PRAYER, HOPE, FAITH and LOVE,
Yes... I placed them right on the shelf.

I picked up this special thing and placed it at the front door.

I FOUND IT- its called PEACE. Nothing gets me down anymore.

Yes, I've got my house looking nice.

Looks good around the place.

For things like Worry and Trouble there just isn't any space.

It's good to do a little house cleaning, Get rid of the things on the shelf.

It sure makes things brighter; maybe you should TRY IT YOURSELF.
BE BLESSED AND BE A BLESSING TO SOMEONE ELSE!!!!

May the Lord open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that you will not have room enough to receive it all.
Malachi 3:10.

May the Lord bless you exceedingly abundantly above all you could ever hope for.
Philippians 4:19.

Brooks Atkinson het gesê:
"Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go."
