Waterproof Principle 35 - Crowded House



“Everywhere you go, you always take the weather with you”

Crowded House


Every year around my birthday, I look at my life, what I have learnt and then I document it on this blog. So…here’s what stood out that I would like to celebrate and also work or focus on growing into, in the years to come.

In my quest to build and create a positive legacy, firstly in and outside my home, one that resonates into generations to come, it will be met with challenges…

· Not everyone will share your vision or support you in it

· Some people will judge you, when they really know nothing 
  (just like that guy, John Snow)

· Some people will criticize you 

· Some people will make ‘soul-killing’ remarks disguised as jokes

· Some people will continually de-motivate you and bombard you with 
  ‘negative news’

· Some poeple will gossip and discuss you behind your back instead of 
   talking to you

· Some people will project their pre-conceived ideas, hurt and issues onto you 

· Some people won’t take the time to find out where you’re coming from, accept or understand your kind of weird

· Some people will love you this week and next week you are ‘niks’ (nothing)

· Not everyone has your best interests at heart wanting you to reach your full potential

· Some people will waste precious time being stubborn, withholding forgiveness and grace towards you

· Some people will completely misinterpret your words and have unresolved  issues because of what you said

· Some people will try to control and manipulate you to make you ‘fit’ into their  perfect. little. picture (too little)

· Some people will fail you



People just like me. just like you. Just like you and I do sometimes…

because we are some people.
people, not just some, are not perfect 
Sometimes we fail ourselves 
and each other in a few 
or all of these areas.


I don't want to be on the “some people” list
I want to support and build people…not so easy when people you love and want to protect are involved, a time consuming, invested heart written off - one’s own hurt, but definitely a goal one can work towards

The only way I will really be changed is to continually spend time with Someone who is none of the things listed above. Someone who is not on the "Some People" list. Maybe this house is too ‘crowded’ after all with all the “some peoples” and how we allow them to affect our minds… It is more about our FOCUS then it is about WHO says WHAT… a Crowded mind...



· When I turn my heart and thoughts to Him, talk to Him, He gives and shares    my vision, He supports me

· He doesn’t judge me, He knows my story, all of it (the bad stuff too!)

· He just builds me up and when He corrects, it is with love

· He speaks words that are wholesome to my entire being

· He will encourage me to keep going in faith even though I don’t see any  results yet

· I will always leave feeling refreshed and motivated when I have spent time   with Him

· Our words are private and I can trust Him with every. little. thing.

· He loves me and sees me for who I really am, who He made me to be

· His love remains constant through all the ups and downs of this life and the  next, nothing can separate us

· He has only my best interests at heart and wants me to succeed in all areas

· He forgave me even before I had the chance to see what I did wrong

· He gets me

· He doesn’t want to control me like a puppet, but lovingly invites me to follow    Him in a Love walk - and it won’t be a little picture when He is in it

· He never fails me, Love never fails.


God is the pleasant street weather, that I want to take everywhere with me.

Joshua Na Die Reën & Liani Reynolds

    Liani Reynolds en Jacques van Joshua na die Reën

Joshua Na Die Reën het al ‘n huishoudelike naam geword in Suid Afrika en almal wat sy musiek hoor is gaande daaroor. Vir die rede was Affies Seunsskool, in Pretoria, se saal vol gepak met afwagting op sy nuutste album. Almal het uitgesien na sy gevoelvolle stem wat gemaklik hoog en dan weer laag deur jou hart sny met sy sielvolle lirieke. Jy kan sy musiek voel en jou hart kan dit verstaan. Ek dink dis hoekom so baie mense sy musiek geniet. Ons, ek en Lenetjie, was ook baie opgewonde om Liani Reynolds se album te beleef, veral vir dié wat haar unieke diep stem gehoor het op die Lugballon enkelsnit van Musiek soos Grond. Laat ek vir jou ‘n prentjie skets van die heerlike aand sodat jy kan voel asof jy ook daar was. Ek deel graag met julle my belewenis.


Voor die konsert het ons vinnig ‘n paar fotos geneem en geselsies aangeknoop met sangers, radio omroepers en Jacques se ma wat op kort kennis kaartjies verkoop het.

Die klippie in my skoen - geskryf deur iskra

Wat 'n knaende verraad! Daardie klippie in die skoen. Daardie ding wat krap en pla en mens soms verleë laat. Dis 'n pes as jy dalk jaag van hier na daar, soveel dinge wat aan jou trek; jou aandag vat; daar is nie tyd nie! Vir jou om net te kan sit, skoen uittrek en die verdomde ding uitgooi! Pfffeeeu...! Wat 'n verligting as hy eers weg is!

So klein dingetjie met soveel praat in sy kneuse...daardie klippie in die skoen.
(Talk about rubbing me up the wrong way!)

Ons het almal maar ons klippies. Klein goedjies wat haak en pla. Daagliks knaag dit aan ons..maal dit rond in ons koppe, laatnag, wannneer ons eintlik moet slaap...

Ons veiligheid.
Ons kinders se toekoms, gesondheid. Hoe gaan jy hierdie maand daardie rekening betaal?
Jou huwelik of 'n vriendskap is dalk op 'n snaakse plek of selfs naby skipbreek?

Dalk ons eie gesondheid wat 'n lelike rapport gekry het... 'n finale een...wat jou asem weggeruk het...wat jou, die mense om jou, dae en minute met 'n ander o…

Noem My Skollie - Die Resensie

#NasieInspirasie
Fliekresensie: Noem My Skollie




Duur: 2.5 ure

Skrywer: John W. Fredericks

Regie: Daryne Joshua

Vervaardiger: David Max Brown

Klankbaan: Kyle Shepherd
(Geskik vir kykers vanaf 18jaar)

Kyk, dis die eerste fliek wat my binne my sitplek in die teater laat voel het ek is verseker nié veilig nie. Noem My Skollie is hard en onverskrokke, maar baie eg tot die werklikheid. Die feit dat die film gebaseer is op John W. Fredericks (die skrywer) se lewensverhaal, maak dit net meer roerend.

Na jy dié wêreld van daaglikse geweld en oorlewing op die Kaapse vlaktes en in Pollsmoor se tronk uitgebeeld gesien het, sal jy sukkel om weer op dieselfde, haai-shame-dis-darem-erg manier daar verby te ry. Gevolglik speel baie gebeure af in areas waar jy as kyker al self voetspore gelos het, en dít bring die film ook baie nader aan jou eie lewe.

AB, Gimba, Gif en Shorty is tipiese jong seuns wat in die 1960’s hul geluk uitprobeer in hul eie bende, Young Ones, totdat AB en Gimba deur die polisie gevang …
