Inkspraak 2 – Kortverhale

Ek het die voorreg gehad om deel te wees van hierdie fantastiese projek deur Anze Bezuidenhout van Ink in Afrikaans.

Toe ek die tweede prys wen vir my storie Moedeloos verslaentheid se nadraai was my dag en jaar gemaak.

Baie dankie vir die voorreg om deel te kon wees van hierdie projek. Om net jou storie in ‘n boek te kry is al ‘n groot wen maar wanneer dit saam met ander ewe begaafde skrywers te wees maak dit soveel beter.

Die versameling sluit in verskeie genres wat die lagkliere kielie, en die trane laat rol. Daar is ook verskeie lekkerkry stories wat sommer net die dag betekenis gee. Definitief ‘n moet vir enige leser.

Die boek is verkrygbaar by Groep 7 Drukkers en Publiseerders teen R380 per boek.

Inkspraak 2 – Kortverhale / Goodreads

DIE DIGTER

Haar vermoë

om gebrokenheid

in heelheid te omskep

as haar voete stewig vastrap;

haar innerlike sterkte

blyk onverstoorbaar

as sy die wêreld se laste

op haar skouers dra

haar hande praat

met donderweer

en hartseer oë

met weerligstrale speel

verrys berge

waar die aardkors skeur

 

want in op die papier

droog gouer as trane

dáárom dat verwardheid

in gebroke skrif ewig

geboorte gee aan nuwe krag

Skakels van ‘n Ketting

Skakels van ‘n Ketting

Inspirerende sielsgedagtes oor verhoudings …

  1. Tussen ouers en kinders en die invloed daarvan op jou menswees saamgestel deur Driekie Grobler
Ons wêreld sou ‘n baie beter plek gewees het as ons beter verhoudings met mekaar kon handhaaf.
SKAKEL VAN ‘N KETTING in die eerste boek in ‘n reeks van twee, geskryf deur myself en verskeie ander skrywers wat uit hul eie ondervinding vertel hoe verhoudings met hulle ouers, hulself en ander hul lewe beïnvloed het.
Die boek kan by my bestel word vir R180 ‘n boek (koeriergelde uitgesluit) by lynelle@kreativcollectiv.com.

VOORWOORD

 Geen mens is gemaak om alleen deur die lewe te gaan nie. Ons vorm ʼn onsigbare ketting met God as die begin- en eindpunt.

Ongelukkig verswak skakels in die ketting as gevolg van sonde, en die vyand se doelwit is om gesonde verhoudings daardeur stukkend te breek. Hy weet dat as daar geen eensgesindheid en liefde onder ons is nie, verswak die saambindfaktor, raak die skakels bros en breek die ketting maklik.

Kyk maar hoe gaan dit vandag in huishoudings; in familiekringe; in werksituasies; in die politiek; in ons land en die hele wêreld. Onmin en liefdeloosheid is aan die orde van die dag. Die wêreld lê besaai met gebreekte skakels.

Om verhoudings te kan herstel, moet ons eerstens weer gaan vashaak aan God, die bron van oorsprong, liefde en krag. Hom toelaat om ons te genees en heel te maak. Daarna moet ons leer om onsself te vergewe en lief te kry voordat ons kan uitreik en weer vashaak aan ander.

Mag hierdie skrywes, uit verskillende ondervindings en standpunte, tot inspirasie dien vir elke leser.

Dankie aan elke skrywer wat hul hart en ondervindings hier kom deel het.

Dankie aan ʼn liefdevolle hemelse Vader wat hierdie projek op my hart gelê het en die regte mense daarvoor bymekaar gebring het.

Alle dank, lof en eer aan ons Skepper Heer.

Laat die Woord jou skoonwas

My grootword jare was gekenmerk deur twyfelagtige gedagtes van ‘wie is ek’, en waar hoort ek. Ek was ʼn baie onseker mens wat die heeltyd op soek was na stabiliteit. Baie van hierdie twyfel was gesetel in leuens wat ek geglo het. Leuens veroorsaak deur die ongevoeligheid van familie en my gesin. Dit was versterk deur die manier wat ek groot gemaak was, teenoor hoe my sibbe groot gemaak was.

My ouers was baie streng teenoor my. Vandag is ek dankbaar daaroor, maar daardie tyd het ek gedink hulle haat my.

Jaloesie was ʼn groot dryfveer wat ons vandag nog belemmer om ʼn goeie verhouding te hê. Die ouderdomsverskil het natuurlik ook by gedra tot die skeiding. Jare se troebelheid het die water brak gelaat en dit is met moeite wat die verhoudinge onderhou word.

My ouers is goeie mense en het my grootgemaak volgens hul onsekerhede, kennis en ervarings. Ek het nog altyd ʼn diepe dankbaarheid vir hulle, ongeag my gevoelens. Hulle voorbeeld en getrouheid een van my groot pilare waarop ek kon staan.

My ma het my geleer van dryfkrag en onvoorwaardelike liefde. My pa hoe om logies na ʼn situasie te kyk. Ek het die waarde van familie by hulle geleer. My liefde vir die land het ek van my pa gekry, asook liefde vir boeke. My Blog “Inspire to Read,” se leuse is: “Be inspired! Read Books.” Ek leef dit. Nie net omdat ek lief is vir lees nie, maar die voordele wat dit inhou.

Maar tog kon ek nooit die antwoord: wie is ek? Kry nie

My twyfelgedagtes het deurgeslaan in elke faset van my lewe. Van die mees onbenulligste dingetjies tot lewensbelangrike keuses was beïnvloed.

Ek het als bevraagteken, maar skugter gebly: elke keer wat ek spontaan opgetree het was ek in die bek geruk, wat veroorsaak het dat ek mense eenkant toe geskuif het en myself verloor het in boeke. Vandag is dit nogsteeds vir my moeilik om spontaan te wees.

Boeke was ʼn veilige hawe te midde van die onderstrominge wat in die huis en later in my eie lewe geheers het. Maar dit het my ook in verkeerde rigtings gestuur wat lank by my gespook het daarna.

My toekomsplanne moes plek maak vir verantwoordelikhede waarvoor ek nog nie reg was nie. Dit het ek uitgehaal op my gewese man deur woede-aanvalle en stilstuipe. Als het daaronder gelei.

In 1992 het ek tot bekering gekom en was die leuens vervang met waarheid. Dit het nie oornag gebeur nie. Soos wat ek gegroei het in die Woord, so het die waarheid deurgesyfer: ek was soos ʼn spons wat net gedrink het. Die Woord was soos vars water wat my denke, besluite en aksies beïnvloed het en kon ek elke onwaarheid verruil met waarheid.

Dit het tyd gevat om die leuens te vervang. Jare se bitterheid en seer moes afgeleer word en met nuwes vervang word. Dit het tyd gevat om werklik Vader se Woord as waarheid te glo, maar die oomblik wat dit gebeur het, het ek vry gevoel. Skoon; soos ʼn nuwe mens. Ek het tuis gekom.

Wat het ek geleer?

Leuens benadeel jou. Dit steel en ontmoedig jou van kosbare tyd.

Ek het toe gelaat dat die proses werk. Ek het toegelaat dat die Woord my was. Dit was nie maklik nie en soms was die proses pynlik maar ek het skoon gekom.

My boodskap aan jou:

Jou vryheid is duur gekoop. Laat toe dat Vader se woord jou ook was en dat waarheid die leuns vervang. Jy is dit aan jouself verskuldig.

Onthou: Jy is geseënd en hoogs bevoordeel deur ‘n Vader wat jou baie lief het.

The Connection Series

The Connection Series

Note from the Author

Although this is a work of fiction, the Biblical truths and principles remain true. If you want your life to change, you must stay in the guidelines of the Written Word and be obedient and patient to that revelation. I have written this series from 2009 to 2011. It helped me to stay focus on what God was doing in our lives, always remembering that He is still in control even if it made little sense. Many of the Biblical truths I used are what God gave us during this migrating process. I hope it will help you too in your own process. As a son of God, you are not governed by the laws of the Old Testament, but by the Law written in your heart. The incorruptible Living Word. It is not enough to say you are a Christian. Or use it as a title, but to live according to the word birthed with in you during your new birth and baptism in the Holy Spirit. These two aspects are necessary to receive understanding and to stay in obedience through the knowledge of the Written Word. Each one of us is confronted with choices, and it is up to us to choose correctly. Each leading to a different path. At first, it may seem that life leads to death, but when you stick with the Word, you will be resurrected. For each, the length of that path differs, but we need to stay focus on the doctrine of the Word, the fellowship of the brethren, the breaking of bread and prayer. Without these four pillars, you cannot experience the fullness promised by Christ. I still walk on the road every day. May you too find peace between the pages of the Written Word. I bless you and wish you peace. Lynelle, Ephesians 1:11-23.

The Source of Joy

Psalm 4:6–7

Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?” Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord. You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound. NIV.

How true that is of our situation today. Many are asking. “Who can show us any good?” There is a kind of disillusionment, a pessimism in the air – particularly perhaps in the realm of politics – a dearth of confidence in leadership, a series of agonizing frustrations that have passed over us in recent decades. But in the midst of all this there is an answer.
Who can show us any good? David the psalmist then goes on, “Let the light of Your face shine upon us, O Lord.” Real goodness has only one source. It comes from the Lord, and when He lifts up the light of His face upon us, that light dispels our darkness, our anxieties, our worries, our fears. We are filled with joy.
David says, “You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.” There’s a kind of pleasure and satisfaction and happiness that we get from material abundance, but there’s something different that comes only from the light of God’s countenance upon our lives. True joy that excels anything that we can get from mere material prosperity or security or satisfaction. So remember, it’s the light of God’s countenance that will make your life meaningful and secure.

Questions to consider throughout the storyline:

  1. How realistic do you find the characters?
  2. Is there any part within the story that's unclear?
  3. Since I know little about America or ranch life, your input on any of these topics will be taken into consideration. I try to do as much research as possible, but it's possible to still miss something. This will help to make the story more believable.
  4. Are the characters realistic and relatable?
  5. Does the storyline have a good flow or are there areas that need to be rewritten?

 

 

Book 1

A Source of Joy

Synopsis:

Source of Joy is a story of love and loss that brings a few generations together in a mutual bond of understanding and faith. Following the path of less resistance, be faithful to one’s dreams and God’s word might be harder than they thought.

One woman’s quest to be reunited with her son has a snowball effect on all she encounters. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Simone Stevenson walks a road of unfulfilled dreams while she remains in the shadows of a foolish man. As soon as her son follows his dreams, she withdraws in a shell of propriety and becomes a puppet with a lonely existence.

When she tastes the freedom at the Conway Ranch, she realised she cannot return to her old manner of life. Back in South Africa, danger meets her as John Stevenson's secrets threaten to surface. She learns to cope with this growing tension and spend much time against the mountains of Camps Bay for guidance. That her son is happy helps to ease the pain of separation and she waits patiently for her next move.  

Bending the rules to keep his secret, John Stevenson will stop at nothing. Even commit murder if that will keep his secret safe. Living a double life, he soon realises that he has choices to make.

Against his father’s wishes, James Stevenson ends up on a Montana Ranch where the owner and his son teach him about ranch life, horses, and the freedom to follow your dream. Only during her brief visit does he realise the price she pays to visit him, and it leaves him with more questions.

Tripp Calloway leads a quiet existence in the Montana valley nestled between mountains and rivers where peace reigns. He heads the ranch with a strict hand and brook no excuses while he allows his son the space to grow. It is only when he meets Simone Stevenson that he realises he wants more in life. He, too, is challenged with lies that threaten to derail him and has to set his longing for a family aside. But a promise from God helps him to remain faithful to his dream and take this momentary delay as part of his process.

Celeste Stevenson knows about Simone, but Simone doesn’t know about Celeste. With her family at risk, she stop at nothing to keep her secret from being discovered.

All the characters involved in the plot trust God for a breakthrough in their lives. Will they listen or will life take its course and ran wild through them? How will the decisions they make now affect their futures later? Will Simone’s dream be fulfilled, or will she remain married to a foolish man?

Tracy Marshall is the daughter of Ben Marshall, a neighbouring ranch owner, with a crush on James. When Tripp offers her a position at the Conway Ranch, it gives her time to get better acquainted with the South African. But the two lovers might not overcome the brother's interference.

Travis Calloway has trust issues since his mother left him at a very young age. Simone helps him to get over this distrust and introduce him to a woman who works in the local diner. After an enormous loss, he asks God for help and has to trust His guidance as he continues to find his way.

A young flight attendant ends up in Billings, Montana. A world foreign to her. With nothing left to do, Mindy Botha follows a woman she has met once in her life to an unknown destination. The divine intervention connects her with a man so perfect for her she follows him blindly. Will she be able to put her dreams aside and follow God’s direction instead?

The history of Love at War:

The birth of Love at War has a long story which began back in 2012 as a short story. This short story has grown and to date has 106k words.

At that stage, the story had a different name as well and was far from what it has become.

This story has grown with me and went through every stage I went through since its birth. The principal character has grown from a furious woman moved by her physical desires to a woman of substance.

When we meet Sonia Main for the first time, she is a woman battered and abused. The streets a very dangerous place for any woman. When the opportunity comes to make something of herself, she takes it with both hands. And so she lands years later in South Sudan. This is where the story begins in all seriousness and we meet Curt McGee.

Colonel Curt McGee is stationed in Iraq and has his own demons to fight. Being far from home, he feels he is losing his family back at home. Once he receives very upsetting news from home, his world, as he knows it, changes.

 

Synopsis

Their enemies tried to outsmart them. Obedience their only defence.

Whisked to picturesque Valletta, a lonely nurse met her soul connection. It set the bar in a stirring plot of spiritual and physical survival as a determined warlord in Africa and a cunning wife in America trapped them. The healing sands of Iraq, their only hope.

Passionate about her work, war-torn South Sudan offered Sonia Main peace. When a man from her past confronted her once more, she had a choice to make. A choice that would influence her life.

Could Sonia let go of the past and see a new future?

Would her dreams continue to haunt her? Or would the warm sun of Africa burn away her fears?

Curt McGee was a man bound by honour and duty. It took him away from home for long periods of time.

Caught in infidelity, Curt's wife’s thinking left him astounded, shocked even. His children prey to an unthinkable enemy.

Would he get beyond his wife's betrayal?

Could he save his children?

What decisions should he make?

Co-workers devised a plan: book a flight to enjoy a weekend on Malta. An island in the Mediterranean Sea that offered tranquillity and peace to weary souls.

Here, two worlds connect, and the result would change them both for eternity.

Meeting by chance, love confronted them, a love so great that they could not deny it. But time played a trick and demanded a price. A price so high that it would strip them of everything before they could experience the joy of a future.

Obedience was better than sacrifice, revealed the pages of the Holy book. Would they yield or follow their own way?

They could not run or hide from the onslaught. Their enemies' attacks growing in intensity. Crafty tricks added to the confusion, their fears real. It stripped them of their hopes and dreams. They could only go one way.

When Tau Gbadamosi met Sonia, he had a tough time to understand his feelings. War ravished his country. The enormous plight for help too great for one man or one fight. Faced with loyalty, he had to decide. A decision that would cost him. Would he fail the test?

Africa's hopes and dreams burned brightly in the harsh African sun. Poverty and lack the driving force for many ‘do-gooders’. It left the continent in a starving grip. But when a warlord sets his sight on the Red Cross nurse, all hell broke loose. No one could stand in his way.

Only God could stop him.

Lover of my soul

Oh, my Sovereign Lord,

I bless your Holy name.

Your Kingdom is eternal

Your words are priceless as pearls.

Your favour is beyond any riches.

Oh Lord, my Father,

Perfect is your timing.

Measured in seconds, time’s algorithm captures infinity within each movement. Worlds changes and fragments become relics. Fashioning a new set of rules to profit from your only choice.

How many of us love plants and admire them, buy them from time to time, but don't really know how to take good care of them, only to let them die of thirst or drowning it?
If you only have read the instructions, but quickly forget to keep to it, only to see how your lovely plant dies in front of your eyes, after a few weeks (money down the drain).
To have lovely, happy plants around you, you first have to become a good gardener. Only then will you have flourishing plants and see and enjoy the results.
The same goes with love. If love is not taken good care off, it will die. The instructions on how to love are stipulated in the Word of God. Read it carefully, take it to heart and use it in your daily living. You will see and enjoy the results thereof. Take responsibility and nurture your love. The more you give, the more you will receive.

INTRODUCTION

The most important thing in life, to survive all the harshness we are confronted with daily, is LOVE.

Without LOVE we are totally lost and lonely. Like a ship without a sail - out of control and vulnerable to be thrown off course and destroyed by every storm coming our way.

God, our Father, who created every one of us, knew this, and that is why He send His only begotten SON, Jesus Christ, to became man on earth, so that He can show us HOW to LOVE. And, although they crucified Him, He still loves us dearly and it is not His will that one person be lost.

His LOVE is UNCONDITIONAL and no matter who you are of what you did, He will ALWAYS love you.

People may hate and hurt you, they may reject you, turn their back upon you when you don’t fit into their way of doing. But they can never take God’s love away from you.

For you are WORTHY TO BE LOVED.
