Every morning, as winter draws on and the alarm clock goes off, I regret my decision that I refuse to send my kids to boarding school. Until we get to 06:40 and we rush out of the house to get to the school bus, and we see our most amazing sunrises.
Then I am glad that I am forced to get up early, as this is a reward second to none. I am sure no two sunrises are the same. That by itself is mindblowing – 365 days per year, year upon year, and God wakes us up with this beautiful skyline, which is even more spectacular in winter.
A few of my friends had been to various destinations recently, as far as Europe and other places in Africa – and they all come home saying “we really live in a very special place.” Not only the people, but the beauty of it all.
Lekker lees, and try and get up early!

Of all the threats to our endangered African penguins, oil spills from damaged ships, pipelines and oil rigs are the most devastating. That’s because the oil breaks through the waterproof feathers that allow penguins to spend hours hunting for food in the frigid ocean. Read more …
