Feast Of The Uninvited – Episode 6

Gisteraand het ons M-Net afgegaan 20:35 en aangekom 21:00. So, ek het ‘n groot deel gemis wat ek met die heruitsending, Sondag, sal kyk.

Wat my diep getref het, was die foto wat die moeder laat afneem het van haar kind ‘n dag nadat hy oorlede is sodat sy pa kon sien hoe hy lyk.

Oorlog is seker die grootste toets van jou geloof, veral as jou kinders doodgaan. Ek het die pa se gebed langs die sterwende kleinkind probeer afskryf. Dit het so gegaan:

Lord save this child and show us that You live. I pleaded, trusted and believed but You did not save one. We called You a Saver. You did not do a thing. You are the gobler of childrens souls. Any God who allowed what happend in these camps, can’t have mercy.

Toe het die sterwende kind se ma gese: “Children’s deaths are God’s jokes.”

Dan die treffende woorde om oor na te dink: “If you die before your innocence die, you become a song.”

Ja, my geloof was ook al getoets, nie met dood nie, en ek het gevaal.

Blog van die week

Hierdie week wys ek Op Die Seepkissie van Jo-Ann Schou aan as my blog van die week. Dit is waar sy raas, jubel, wonder, betoog en sommer net gesels. Sy het alreeds 23,234 hits gekry. Kuier gerus by Jo-Ann: http://joanns.wordpress.com/

Ja, ek stem saam met Roer en Boerinballingskap, gister se inskrywing het meer betrekking on die politiek.

In die Super 14 het ek al vir Daniel Carter en Nick Evans onderskydelik aangewys as my sportman van die week. Dis om te wys hoe kak ons SA spanne op die oomblik speel. Hoop dat ek vanaf volgende week ‘n bietjie van die SA spelers sal kan aanwys. Ek kan nie wag dat Bryan Habana en Pierre Spies terugkeer nie.

Die padda en die skerpioen

Miskien ken jy die fabel van die padda en die skerpioen. Die skerpioen wou graag ‘n vol rivier oorsteek, en vra toe ‘n padda of hy hom op sy rug oor die rivier sal neem.

“Jy moet beslis dink ek is baie dom,” antwoord die padda hom. “As ek jou op my rug oor die rivier dra, sal jy my heel waarskynlik doodsteek.” “Nog nooit,” antwoord die skerpioen. “As ek dit sou doen, sal ek mos saam met jou verdrink.”

Met hierdie argument oortuig die skerpioen die skrikkerige padda, en hy begin die rivier oorswem met die skerpioen op sy rug. In die middel van die rivier voel die padda ‘n brandpyn in sy rug en bedwelm deur die dodelike gif begin hy in die water wegsink.

Met sy laaste bietjie asem verwyt hy die skerpioen: “Hoe kon jy so iets doen? Jy het dan belowe om my nie te steek nie. Nou gaan jy saam met my dood!” “Ek kon nie anders nie,” se die skerpioen voor die water oor hom toevou, “dit is my aard.”

Miskien het dit tyd geword dat ons mooi na ons eie lewe en die toestand van ons hart gaan kyk. Is ek rein van hart?

Feast Of The Uninvited – Episode 5

Gee my net ‘n plank vir my kind se kis. Die vrouens het in die nag die Kakies toe gehensop om by die klavier uit te kom. Die klavier wat gespeel het terwyl die kinders huil. Toe breek hulle die klavier in stukkies om ‘n plank vir ‘n kis te kry.

Die verteller, Kobus Rossouw, het in die begin gese dat die drama net stories is, maar daar was rerig oorlog, plase afgebrand, konsentrasie kampe, trane, hartseer, dood en drama gedurende die “Anglo Boer War”.  26 000 vrouens en kinders het in die konsentrasie kampe gesterf. 

Waarlik die beste tv reeks wat ek nog gesien het. My geskiedenis, my mense.

Joost van der Westhuizen verjaar vandag. Geluk Joost en dankie vir alles wat jy vir ons gedoen het. Ons waardeur dit baie.

Since winning his first cap as a 22-year-old, Joost van der Westhuizen has been a regular fixture in the Springbok squad, breaking record after record to be widely regarded as one of the finest scrumhalves of all time.

Born in Pretoria on the February 20, 1971 and educated at FH Odendaal High School and Pretoria University, he played Coca Cola Craven Week and represented the Junior Springboks.

He made his Test debut for the Springboks against Argentina in Buenos Aires in November 1993 and played a key role in their 1995 Rugby World Cup triumph. He bravely led from the front as captain as the Springboks finished third at RWC 99.

After years of loyal service to SA rugby, the veteran scrumhalf almost took up a lucrative contract with Welsh side Newport, for whom former Bok captain Gary Teichmann used to play. However, the lure of Springbok rugby made him change his mind and despite three knee operations the scrumhalf is still competitive at Vodacom Super 12 level in 2003.

Joost, who has been named as one of South Africa’s five players of the year in six of the last seven years, career highlights include that memorable 1995 Rugby World Cup Final, leading the Blue Bulls to the 1998 Bankfin Currie Cup title and winning the Winfield Tri-Nations in 1998.

Arguably his finest moments on the field have been his brilliant solo try against England at Twickenham in 1995, his three tries against Scotland in Edinburgh in 1994 and his magnificent performance against Natal in the 1998 Bankfin Currie Cup semifinal.

He also captained the Sevens squad to the World Cup in Argentina after representing the side in 1993 and 1997. In the latter tournament, he also captained the side to the final where they were narrowly defeated by Fiji 24-21.

Joost is one of seven players who have played 50 test matches or more for South Africa (as at the end of 2004).

Standing 1.88m tall and weighing in at 92kg, Joost is elusive in attack and devastating in defence and has more than earned the right to be called one of the greatest scrumhalves of all time.

Representative Honours: Junior Springboks, Coca Cola Craven Week, SA Sevens at RWC Sevens in 93 & 97 (Captain 97), South Africa 93-2000, RWC 95 & 99, Blue Bulls squad 2002, Bulls Vodacom Super 12 captain 2002 and 2003.
