God defend New Zealand

Men of every creed and race,
Gather here before Thy face,
Asking Thee to bless this place,
God defend our free land.
From dissension, envy, hate,
And corruption guard our state,
Make our country good and great,
God defend New Zealand.

Peace, not war, shall be our boast,
But, should foes assail our coast,
Make us then a mighty host,
God defend our free land.
Lord of battles in Thy might,
Put our enemies to flight,
Let our cause be just and right,
God defend New Zealand.

South Africa: Just sharing some thoughts at the ‘beginning of the writing journey’

I came across these old thoughts/writings in a search of my computer + many usb drives (“sheer utter chaos”), so thought I’d share.

Haven’t yet found the long article/booklet I wrote about SA’s issues/problems (immense) facing the country in 1994/95 (at the time of the transition to a “free and democratic” country), many of which are still there *… and perhaps even greater in 2019.

eg. the “biggie:land redistribution question

I want to write stories that matter a lot to me, in terms of my deepest values. True stories from people’s lives in history, that are worth sharing with others. Inspirational stories of ordinary people in exceptional circumstances and times, that hopefully uplift and impact others through certain people’s great generosity of spirit inherant in the human condition to overcome great obstacles in their lives! So, in short, my stories are about…

Alpha Course (for “spiritual beginners”)

The teachings of Jesus is widely acknowledged to be the greatest teaching of all time.
‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’
‘Do to other people as you would have them do to you.’

Time Magazine described Jesus as ‘the most persistent symbol of purity, selflessness and love in the history of humanity’

Hi Preeti(?)

Thanks for the follow * (+ all the likes), as the reason I write is to share.
* (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

# By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

Who says men can’t multi-task!

Kind regards

craig

“Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true..”

I often wonder why we have become more practical with age… earlier I remember how in childhood we used to believe in our dreams and would often make plans about future albeit we knew there was no realistic approach to them and they had minimal chances of turning into reality but still we were never really worried about the possibilities……now I question myself when and why I started screening and differentiating every desire and dream of mine into categories of whether it is possible or not….why we just can’t stop this constant doubting..and start believing in our dreams and build enough faith that no matter what…we can make them true with sheer hard work and patience…but first we need to stop worrying about future….

Today is the tomorrow we were so…
