Colin's Wise Wednesday - 17th October 2018

Do you remember last week I mentioned we were in the bush and while I was writing our devotion the rest of family and our close friends from the UK were playing card monopoly? Later one of our friends Claire who left South Africa about 19 years ago wrote a poem while sitting on the patio in the bush.

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 10th October 2018

I am truly blessed, another Wednesday is upon us and I am once again writing this devotion from the bush. You will notice the inspiration of the bush coming through in what I am sharing. As I write the family are around the table on the patio playing Monopoly Deal, a card version of the “old monopoly” and laughing away the afternoon before we start our sundowners drive and then gaze at the night sky with stars that shine like diamonds.

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 3rd October 2018

Here we go again, must be Wednesday, but this time our message is in the words of a song “Need” by Richard Pratt from CrossRoad and features on their new album called “There’s a Light”. A special thank you to both Richard Pratt and Luke Powell who have given me the go ahead to use this song for our devotion. Luke also gave me a link to a discussion that he and Richard had concerning the background under which this song was written, very interesting:  https://crossroadchristianband.bandcamp.com/track/need-2

For the first time in a long while we have had a week that was not dominated by the elephants in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. Instead, the Tanda Tula guests have been absolutely spoilt with some fantastic lion sightings over the past week, as can be seen by their prevalence in the images posted here!

We also boast of our troubles, because we know that trouble produces endurance, endurance brings God’s approval, and His approval creates hope.

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 5th September 2018

I have been reading a book called ‘A Warriors Faith’ written by Robert Vera, a story of a Navy Seal Ryan, who’s wounds during combat in Iraq left him blind. Part of the story tells us how his friend discovered Ryan was a Christian. This is the part I will share with you today, it touched me and hope that it will do the same to you.
