SHED IT – Self-absorbed!

Posted on November 26, 2014 at 5:01 0 Comments

A little confession to make...

...recently I was on a fishing trip and became frustrated with what was going on. Interesting enough on reflection I was so self-absorbed that I forgot to serve others and in fact there were moments on the boat that I wished I was alone.

Self-absorbed, self-focused and wanting to be alone! When you see those words laid out on paper it’s a little scary don’t you think? It certainly brings home a…

Shedit! – Soaring or snoring

Posted on November 11, 2014 at 19:26 2 Comments

On a recent trip with my Mum and family to New Zealand to witness my sister’s special day of commitment and love to her partner, Mum shared a story with me that got me thinking. I hope it does the same for you.

You see, Mum let me know that when Dad passed away a few years ago while she was walking on a favourite beach of theirs, that an Eagle appeared out of nowhere. It filled mum with a sense of joy and reminded her of God’s strength and the freedom that Dad now has been able to…

Shed It! – Turning to the Dark Side

Posted on October 12, 2014 at 15:04 2 Comments

What a month to date and we still have most of it to go!

That’s a little how I feel today as I sit in an airport waiting for another delayed service home. A whole lot is going on in my world and in the world in general that has me teetering on that edge of dark and light.

With a change in my role and resistance to that change from the team I am leading to my little sister suffering a mild heart attack at 44 years old, life has been, in my eyes at least, somewhat testing. It’s…

Hi John, you great Champion.

Thanks for your thoughts, as you have them. I thinks at times we are all in the same boat, so to speak.

Thanks also for caring for us others in your prayers. Good of you to remind us of this gift we have in praying for one another. For some time now I have had painful feet, which take my attention away from the bigger pain, someone else might be experiencing.

At my church we have a prayer corner, staffed by diligent members with big hearts and it is good to have a moment with them in prayer. This way our good Lord may be able to speak to us through others and do his work in us. One of these Prayer Warriors prayed for my medication to work and that is significant, because for some time, say more than one year, I had been waiting for the hospital doctor to see me. The waiting list seems to be endless.

After the prayers a venue opened in a private practice for me to have my medication seen to and that is in itself a big step forward. This opens avenues for me to be more receptive to the needs of others, because I don't have to worry about my own pains so much. Apart from being a bit slower walking, there seems to be nothing wrong with me.

We all have these moments, where we think there is nothing wrong with us. That itself seems to be the wrong , because we all fall short of the glory of God. Thanks again for reminding us and me in particular.

Blessings to you in your work and for the Christmas Season with your family.  Cheers,  Dieter

John, you know I just love it when things are not just things but they are memories. After our loved ones are departed it is important to have those memories which can only be created while they are alive. This is important for those of us that are still alive. We need to focus more on creating memories, rather than things. Darryl
