Who’s in Heaven???


I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor…
 
But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.
 
There stood the kid from seventh grade..
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbour
Who never said anything nice.
 
Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.
 
I nudged Jesus, “What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake!!”
 
“And why is everyone so quiet,
So somber – just give me a clue?!”
“Hush, child,” He said, “they’re all in shock –
‘coz no-one thought they’d be seeing YOU!!”  😯

To my Helge, my Love, on his Birthday


16 October 2008

Helge, besides Jesus saving me from my sins, you are the best thing that has ever happened to me.

I love you – truly and absolutely. I love it that we can talk at all hours of the day and night. I love it when you make me giggle long after bedtime. I love your sense of humour and that you are able to make me laugh so much sometimes that my belly hurts. I love the way you love me. I love the fact that your physical strength never pulls rank on your tenderness. I love the spark I feel whenever I see an sms from you on my phone. I love that every single day since we’ve been together I still love so much. I love your smile. Your smile makes everything well with my soul. There is nothing about you I don’t love. Waking up next to you in the morning, not wanting to get up because I feel more at home there than anywhere in the world. Stretching the last few minutes with you (even when you’re still sleeping), is my idea of heaven. In the past few years I’ve fallen in love many times… Always with you. 

You have given me so much. You’ve allowed me into your heart. You’ve given your life another chance for love and you are willing to take that chance with me. You’ve made your house my home. You always give more than I could ever return. You take care of me and my heart. You are the one teaching me about trust. You give me the freedom to be honest about my feelings. I am able to tell you everything, even my secrets, my fears, my failures, my jealousy and my doubts and you keep them as you would your own. You give me permission to share with you all my joys and my pain. You accept the child within my soul. You care for her, protect her and nurture her dreams and hopes. You let my star shine and you are always there to help me achieve my goals and dreams.

Now, on your birthday, I want you to know that you are not just loved, you are adored and treasured! I will keep you on a pedestal as long as you’ll let me. I look forward to next week, next month, next year, your next birthday and all the time in God’s Will for us, after that.

I love you. You are my everything. Thank you for being you. Thank you for making me part of your life. And thank you for loving me.

Bxxx

Wie???


Ek het so ongelooflik baie wonderlike herinneringe saam met hierdie, my beste vriend(in) – dat woorde ontbreek en enige wyse waarop ek sy lof sou besing, nooit die volle omvang daarvan kan beskryf of die ongelooflike betekenis van vriendskap sou kon illustreer nie.

Jy het my so baie geleer in die lewe, my Jani, maar een van dié belangrikste dinge is dit: dat ek nooit ooit ‘n ‘book by its cover’ sal judge nie; dat kindness ‘n mens niks kos nie; dat nederigheid ‘n bate is; dat eerlikheid nooit mag seermaak nie; dat solank as wat jy gee sonder om terug te verwag, jy steeds meer sal hê om te gee; dat mens ook vir jou vriende mag en moet sê: “ek is lief vir jou” of “ek verlang na jou”.
Ons is nou al 30 jaar lank vriende – deur dik en dun (en daar was aan my kant baie ‘dikke’ en hordes ‘dunne’) – en altyd ALTYD was jy daar. Jy laat my altyd soos ‘n million dollars voel. Daardie klein gebare – die koffie in die fyn koppie op ‘n skinkbordjie, melkbekertjie, altyd ‘n koekie of twee op ‘n bordjie – nooit kry ek ‘n sommer-so beker in die hand gedruk – daar is min girls in die lewe wat jou dit kan nadoen. hel, ek kan nie!!

Jy’t my geleer dat almal nie altyd van jou gaan hou nie en dat dit okay is as ek NIE happy is daarmee nie… Jy’t my geleer dat arrogansie en hoogmoed in geen mens se woordeboek behoort te bestaan nie. Dat dit tydmors is om aldag en heeldag oor ander mense te loop en kla. Dat jy hier is om ander te help en nie ‘reg te help’ nie; Dat jy op aarde is om ‘n verskil te maak – en om te sê: “Ja, maar hy/sy doen nie….” geen verskoning is vir jou eie slegte maniere, humeur of optrede nie.

En jy’t my geleer om nooit never ever ooit by die hek uit te gaan sonder om in ‘n spieël te kyk – “pride has nothing to do with vanity” het jy eendag lank terug gesê – “as jy die Koning se kind is, mag jy maar die moeite doen om met alles wat jy tot jou beskikking het, soos ‘n prinses te lyk – élke dag”.
My Eiste, jy’t toe ‘n halwe century gemaak!!  Nadat ons gedink het jy gaan dalk nooit eers 35 haal nie! Jy was nog ‘n ekstra 15 jaar vir my gespaar! Dankie vir 30 jaar se kosbaarste vriendskap! Dankie vir jare se ontelbare kerse opsteek vir my! Dankie vir jou gereelde drukkies; die Vrydag-shooter-nagte toe ons dronkverdrietig in mekaar se ore gehuil het oor ek manloos en jy ‘grasweduwee’ was – onthou jy nog?? die hordes partytjies waarheen ek en jy so gereeld genooi was, net om in die een of ander gasvrou se kombuis op te eindig – en so tussendeur die vuil skottelgoed het ons ons eie party-for-2 gehad – jy’t my geleer langarmdans voor menige wasbakke – en ‘ons song’ – Jona Lewie’s se “You will always find me in the kitchen at parties” – onthou jy nog?? ; Dankie dat jy altyd so ongelooflik openlik bly is om my te sien – elke keer!! Dis hoe jy my die eerste dag gegroet het – en my so die geleentheid gegee het vir ‘n heavenly vriendskap – en volgehou het. Weet jy hoe ‘n ongelooflik lekkerte dit was om só bemind te gevoel het?!
 Ek lees nou die dag hierdie raak:Yes we are friends and I do like to pass the day with you in serious and inconsequential chatter. I wouldn’t mind washing up beside you, dusting beside you, reading the back half of the paper while you read the front. We are friends… I don’t ever want to lose this happy space where I have found someone who is smart and easy and doesn’t bother to check her diary when we arrange to meet.
 
Vir jou my Eiste, is ek baie baie lief!
Vir jou my Eiste, gaan ek so oneindig verskriklik baie mis!
Wie gaan as hy sy foon optel en gesien het dis ek wat bel sommer nog voor die groetslag in die foon gil : “Ek’s lief vir jou my BB”??
Wie gaan Lily Marlene saam met my sing en trane in sy oë daaroor kry oor ek dit dan kwansuis nog ‘mooier’ doen as Marlene Dietrich haarselwers??
Wie gaan, as ek op sy skouer kom huil oor die kleinste nuttelooste ou wroeging in my lewe saamstem en sê: “Dis sommer kak vannie duiwel my BB!!”??
Wie gaan almal wat my seermaak in hulle moere instuur en as ek weer vrede gemaak het, netso daarvan vergeet en te bly wees dat die dinge uitgesort is??
Wie gaan vir my sms’e en emails stuur van kaal manne net oor dit vir hom mooi is en sy gat aflag oor hy weet ek gaan wipperig wees en té flabbergasted om te weet watter knoppie om te druk om dit van my skerm af te vee??
Wie gaan my gesig so tussen sy hande vashou en my in die oë kyk en vir my sê: “Jy is my mooiste, mooiste BB – as ek straight was het ek jou so waaragtig gespyker!”??
Wie gaan my Vrydagmiddae sms al weet hy ek’s op pad vir ons koffie afspraak en vra : “Waar de donner is jy my BB??? Hoe lank gaan jy die antie laat wag??” (en dan’s ek nie eers laat nie!!)?? 
Wie, my Eiste??
Wie???
