Keep The Faith

Reflecting on life (and death) enables me to dig deep in my gratitude tank and pull out all the thanks and praise to He who is worthy of it. You will never hear me refer to anyone (who has to eat and use the bathroom just like me) as ‘his excellency’, ‘your royal highness’, ‘your … Read more

Exodus to the motherland, home before home

Exodus to the motherland

It’s been a minute. I hope you and yours are well. It has been a while, since my last post, the Blog may have been quiet but my life has most definitely not been. My account is still live on Twitter but YouTube have decided to remove my recent comments on other YouTubers channels. I’ve … Read more

Obeying the ‘relationship’ early warning signs

Warning

“I don’t know what happened…he was fine before and as soon as we got married, he changed”. “In the early part of our relationship she was OK but as soon as we became more serious, she turned into a bunny-boiler”. “They are so possessive, I don’t have any room to breathe, they don’t want me … Read more

Since my ‘News update post‘ we’ve had the completion of a few important elections world-wide. The election which ‘seemingly’ most of the world has been interested in, has been the US one.

It’s obviously … Read more

Why it takes a village – (Part 2 of 2)

It Takes a Village

In part one, I covered some of our personal experiences and history. We take our parental role seriously and we understand that effective parenting and leadership, is about influence and motivation to positive action. Life has those unknown external elements which are beyond our immediate control; they usually occur through the actions of others. However, … Read more

No 26-Wedding Anniversary

Phil and Lois Gayle

I hope you are doing well. We are living in, what I have been calling, interesting times. At the start of 2020 we heard about a virus which was sweeping through parts of Asia but didn’t think it would become as aggressive and as feared by a large percentage, as it has. Bible believing readers … Read more

Loving and living with Phil Gayle

There is a lot of truth in your spouse being your best friend and fortunately for me I’ve married mine. I’m totally speaking for myself here but I knew that I had found ‘my person’ when we started dating, we were already good friends (we worked at the same place) and I didn’t see a … Read more

Why it takes a village – helping young adults to build good long-term relationships & marriage (Pt 1 of 2)

Before the obvious educational establishments, before the rise of the Internet Search Engines, books and libraries were used to increase humankind’s knowledge. Before that, it was word of mouth from family members and community elders, along with cave and wall paintings. Books have lasted the test of time and are still used by those seeking … Read more

The failure of the ‘type’

Human beings can be both fascinating and frustrating in equal measure, most are able to exercise our rights of ‘choice’, sometimes to our own detriment. On one hand, we have an ability to learn from mistakes, however, on the other, some repeatedly make intentional bad choices. People who are emotionally and mentally balanced, would consider … Read more

You know you’re ready

So you’re single and secure, you don’t have any baggage, you refuse to settle, you utilise your time constructively, you’re holistically developing yourself, you’ve acknowledged that you are in the 2nd state of being single, you have an understanding of what constitutes as real riches and you have the correct perspective of love and colour, … Read more
