is going to dedicate a post every Wednesday on

GRATITUDE

 Everybody is welcome to tell what made you/them grateful

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Elke donker wolk het n silwer(goue) randjie!

There is a silver lining

to every dark cloud.

Mamma

Vandag sou dit Mamma se verjaarsdag gewees het.

Vir my was sy nie Moeder of Ma nie maar

MAMMA

Liewe Mamma hier is n liedjie net vir u

dankie mamma
vir die jare saam met jou
dankie vir gebede
al het ek soms nie geweet

ek bring vandag hulde aan jou mamma
vir elke roos uit jou hand ontvang
die saamwees elke dag
lang ente se stap langs die rivier
wyse raad elke drukkie elke traan

dankie mamma
vir die jare saam met jou
dankie vir gebede
al het ek soms nie geweet

ek bring vandag hulde aan jou mamma
hier langs jou graf
weet ek sal jou nooit kan vergeet
van liefde so groot soos jou hart
uit jou moedershand

dankie mamma
vir die jare saam met jou
dankie vir gebede
al het ek soms nie geweet

My heiligdom!

Die klompie boeke het hoofsaaklik die gewig van my trek volgemaak.

Ek kan nie sonder boeke nie.

Onderste rak is al my honde-boeke.

geestelike boeke en my kleinnood in afrikaans wat saam gekom het.

Kastaiings – Chestnut

CHESTNUTS

I found the following seed pod while photographing in Cambridge.

At first I could not think of what it was!

DSCF6631

They were under this big tree.

DSCF6633

Then on Saturday we were at the duck pond in Upper Hutt

I found the following!

IMG_6760IMG_6762

It seems that the first one are eatable chestnuts and the last two

are photos of wild horse chestnut!

The following information from

http://www.kai.org.nz/chestnut

The sweet nut from a deciduous Tree growing to 30 m by 15 m at a medium rate. It is hardy and is not frost tender. Take care to differentiate the sweet chestnut from the poisonous horse chestnut which has a smoother less fluffy shell (although the poisonous component saponins are poorly absorbed by the human body and so most pass through without harm. Saponins are quite bitter and can be found in many common foods such as some beans. They can be removed by carefully leaching the seed or flour in running water. Thorough cooking, and perhaps changing the cooking water once, will also normally remove most of them. However, it is not advisable to eat large quantities of food that contain saponins).

Veertjie

Sommer skielik lus gehad om iets oor n veertjie te skryf.

Veertjie

 

Lief veertjie, liewe kind

ligter as ‘n briesie lentewind

weet jy hoe innig

is ons aan jou verbind?

 

Lief veertjie , liewe hoop

wat soos ‘n bergstroompie loop

weet jy hoe vinnig

maak jy vir ons bloeisels oop?

 

Lief veertjie, liewe blom

met ‘n geur wat uit die hemel kom

weet jy hoeveel

gee ons tog vir jou om?

 

Lief veertjie, liewe ster

wat vir ons flikker uit die verste ver

Weet jy hoe diep

die see is wat ons versper?

 

Lief veertjie, liefsteling

wat diep in ons hart ‘n liedjie sing

weet jy hoe groot

oor jou is ons verwondering?

Onderwerp is : Liefde (Love)

Ek het in 2007 n Memory Healing kursus gedoen

Ons moes so veel as moontlik kunsvlyt tegnieke wat ons geleer het in n uitbeelding van gevoel doen

Ek het die liedjie “Blomme” deur Pieter Smit gebruik.

Die liedjie is opgedra aan my seun wat op daardie stadium New Zealand toe verhuis het.

Hier is die werk wat ek gedoen het

Woorde : Words

Smile an everlasting smile, a smile can bring you
Near to me.
Don’t ever let me find you gone, cause that would
Bring a tear to me.
This world has lost it’s glory, lets start a brand
New story now, my love.
Right now, there’ll be no other time and I can show
You how, my love.

Talk in everlasting words, and dedicate them all to
Me.
And I will give you all my life, I’m here if you
Should call to me.
You think that I don’t even mean,
A single word I say.
It’s only words, and words are all I have, to take
Your heart away
