South African Big Sky Panorama


Had a little fun with this one. The photos used to construct this “Big Sky Panorama” were taken on top of the Moses Mabhida Stadium yesterday with my trusty blogging camera and merged together using Photoshop CS4.

I would like to give Don Charisma a shout for always being an inspiration and I believe I got the whole Big Sky idea from his blog. Head over there for loads of brilliant images.

Hope you enjoy…

Friday’s Word of the day


OK I am starting a Random G tradition here, in prep for tomorrows prayer meeting. A Quick verse for the day.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

If you can guess the verse reference you get the day off:)

As Always.
Love and respect.

Pilgrims Rest – Old Car


Have you ever been to Pilgrims Rest in South Africa? It is like the final frontier. I mean, this place is like a museum! A small olden day mining town in the mountainous region of Mpumalanga, formally known as Eastern Transvaal.

Generally the going here is pretty tough and I can’t help but to wonder what it must have been like living during the gold rush that happened in these parts all those years back. Driving vehicles like this and using technology that, well, no – there was no tech back then.:)

Take a look at this car, it ran for 20 years or so. How did they get spares to service and maintain for such a long time before it finally gave in to the environment? I think that people must have been pretty tough and resourceful back then.

DEAR HUMAN

20140603-003012-1812707.jpg Dear Human,

About letting go.

Do you realize that it’s fear of change that encourages you to hold onto things that are no longer serving you in a positive way?

Every person on earth struggles with with change. Every Single Person.

When you find yourself sitting and thinking about how much you dislike your life or how unhappy you are, you simply must change things.

Often the only way to be free from that which is holding you down is indeed scary. But you can do it.

You are wired to face fear and overcome it. Don’t let anyone or any circumstance steal your joy and rob you of your precious moments of life.

Change can cause turmoil this is true. And letting go can be hard. But when you realize that you are stronger then your feelings, you will discover that letting go isn’t so difficult after all.
