Colin's Wise Wednesday - 11th July 2018

Polo’s eyes seem to reflect the  joy in his heart as he runs to collect a ball that I have thrown.  Chad captures this special moment as we take our neighbors dog for a run in the open fields.

In a previous blog, we examined how adjusting the lens’s aperture helps determine the final exposure of an image. But if you recall the exposure triangle from earlier on in this series, there was a third element that was vital for completing the exposure puzzle. Today’s blog will focus on this very factor. It is,  of course, the ISO settings of the camera.
 
God is to be trusted, the God who called you to have fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.

It’s Wednesday! Here we go again. We will start off differently this week with an appropriate Bible verse for our devotion:

20 JUNE 2018 There is a Mamba under my bed!
 
I am telling you the truth: those who believe in Me will do even greater things, because I am going to the Father.

Not many people would guess that hyenas would be able to dominate lions in an area, but as is often the case, these mostly misunderstood predators are hugely underrated. Given their complex social organisations and the fact that their clans regularly number twenty five or more members, their dominance in such systems should not come as such a surprise.

Wednesday has arrived so it is once again time to share with you.
 
My prayer is that our fellowship with you as believers will bring about a deeper understanding of every blessing which we have in our life in union with Christ.

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 13th June 2018

It’s Wednesday again and what a privilege it is to once again share a time of devotion with you.
 
When, however, the Spirit comes, who reveals the truth about God, He will lead you into all the truth.

1 June 2018 - A week of green landscape in photos
After a little over two weeks of leave spent exploring some of Zimbabawe’s national parks, it was wonderful to return to the wilds of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve and see what had been happening at Tanda Tula whilst I was away. One thing was quite apparent upon my return, summer was still not willing to let go of its grip on the landscape, and quite unlike the Kruger National Park, just north of the Timbavati, the bush was still infused with a great deal of greenery. Other than some yellowing grasses, the shades of autumn remain absent.

As I said a few weeks ago birds are one of my passions. When we moved into our current house 15 years ago one of the first things that we looked for was a place forour bird feeder and bird bath/drinking spot.( Aren’t we glad that we don’t have to drink the water we bath in!)  We were eager to see what birds would “pop in” for a meal and a drink. We had masked-weaver males fighting for their territory and the Indian Mynahs chasing the more placid birds like Cape white eye and the Redheaded finches. We had cut the perches short so that the doves could not stand on the perch, it was their job to clear the ground as they ate all the food that the smaller birds had messed. Our plan works very well. The other birds that we have around are the Cape Robin the Olive Thrush and the bigger birds like the Grey Lourie and our daily wakeup call the Hadida. We are truly blessed having God’s creatures all around us.
 
My prayer is that our friendship with you as believers will bring about a deeper understanding of every blessing which we have in our life in union with Christ.

Last week we reflected on recognizing Gods call. I have included Chad’s picture of the bird calling as it is again appropriate to God’s message today.
