The price on 95 octane petrol would increase by R1.62 in Gauteng and R1.60 on the coast, according to a statement on Friday
In Gauteng the price per litre of 93 octane petrol would increase by R1.56 and on the coast by R1.54.
The price per litre of diesel would increase by between R1.20, on the coast, and R1.24, in Gauteng.
The price of illuminating paraffin would increase by 26c per litre countrywide
Liquefied Petroleum Gas would increase by 85c per kilogram countrywide.
Reasons given for the increase were higher international prices for petrol, diesel, and paraffin, and the weakening of the rand against the US dollar. Man if only their lame excuse were the truth. Fact is more money is needed for new luxury homes, cars, TV’s and extravagant parties with expensive food and liquor.

Be joyful in hope. Sometimes the circumstances of your life (and the condition of this world) make it difficult for you to be joyful. When you’re searching for Joy, where do you turn? One of the best places to find true Joy is in hope. I want you to know the hope to which I have called you-the riches of My glorious inheritance. Since you are a co-heir with Me, this blessing is definitely for you. When present circumstances are weighing you down, grasp onto hope for dear life! It will help you not only to survive but to thrive-to live joyously.
In some ways, hope is like a hot-air balloon. It is very buoyant, so it can lift you up above your troubles. It enables you to soar in the heavens with Me-helping you see things from a heightened, big-picture perspective. To embark on this heavenly journey, you must climb into the basket beneath the balloon-by trusting fully that your hope in Me will not let you down. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. -Romans 12:12
[May God] give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints. -Ephesians 1:17-18 esv

LIVE TV CAPTURES DESTRUCTIVE TWISTER Tribune KFOR TV NBC CH 4 Chief Meteorologist Mike Morgan along with Chopper 4 pilot Bob Moore describes a gustnado in Moore, OK during Wednesday’s storm that strikes near Oklahoma City. He sees electrical flashes from high winds that toss objects and causes electrical explosions. That is a tornado, folks. That’s a tornado, right there. The storm destroys homes, flips semis on their sides, tears the roof off an elementary school, plus the winds rip KOKC’s radio towers.
TWISTER TWISTS RADIO TOWERS In late 1946, KOMA-1520 power increases to 50,000 watts. In 1958, Todd Storz buys KOMA-1520. It is the third station in OKC to flip to Top-40, behind KOCY and WKY.

On August 27, 2004 KOMA-1520 becomes KOKC. On Wednesday, March 25, 2015 a tornado topples three of KOKC-1520’s towers and shuts it down.

DON SUNDEEN [former KCOH-1430 OM/PD/DJ-Hi Records promotion-TV ad prod] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Bermuda Radio Archive Network. Jim, thought you’d find this radio ‘small world’ story interesting. Written by Jim Richards, morning man at ZBM 2, the station we tried to compete with in Bermuda in the early 60’s… ZBM 1 and 2 were based on the BBC model and staffed by announcers from Britain’s possessions, Canada, Australia, and other English speaking countries, all well paid and professional. They wouldn’t hire me because I was an American, even for a part-time gig, so I ended up on the native station, ZFB, the only non-Bermudian, and as the newly minted Canadian Donnie Dare. The story Jim tells is true and almost too coincidental. Bermuda Radio Archive Network.

Houston, Texas – Laus Deo
The disciple Peter was a man of great faith and bold action. But as readers of the New Testament know, his brash style sometimes led him to make humiliating mistakes. More than once, this disciple had to wear the label of “miserable failure” rather than that of “obedient servant.”
We can all relate when it comes to falling short of expectations. Obedience to God is a learning process, and failure is a part of our development as humble servants. When we yield to temptation or rebel against God’s authority, we realize that sin has few rewards, and even those are fleeting.
Failure is an excellent learning tool, as Peter could certainly attest. Through trial and error, he discovered that humility is required of believers (John 13:5-14); that God’s ways are higher than the world’s ways (Mark 8:33); and that one should never take his eyes off Jesus (Matt. 14:30). He took each of those lessons to heart and thereby grew stronger in his faith. Isn’t that Romans 8:28 in action? God caused Peter’s failures to be put to good use as training material because the disciple was eager to mature and serve.
God doesn’t reward rebellion or wrongdoing. However, by His grace, He blesses those who choose repentance and embrace chastisement as a tool for growth.
We would probably all prefer to grow in our faith without ever making a mistake before God’s eyes, but we cannot deny that missteps are instructive. Failure teaches believers that it is much wiser and more profitable to be obedient to the Lord.

Nashville, Tenn. (March 27, 2015) – With his easy-going style and laid back nature, Don Williams has become one of Country Music’s most-beloved performers both in the United States, as well as abroad. Williams announces the Spring and Fall legs of his 2015 tour, bringing his hits to fans old and new.
“Mercy, the fans have kept us going for years, and I am glad to share the music with them once again,” says Williams
Williams first came to prominence in the 1960s as a member of the folk group The Pozo-Seco Singers. The trio recorded several hit records, with the biggest being “Time.” By 1971, Williams had gone solo, and had signed a publishing deal with Jack Clement. The Hall of Fame producer was so taken with Don’s style that he offered him a recording contract with his JMI Records in 1972. Early hits included “Atta Way To Go” and “Come Early Morning,” as well as “We Should Be Together,” which became his first Billboard top ten hit from 1974. He then moved to ABC / Dot (Later MCA), where the hits increased. Tracks such as “Rake and Ramblin’ Man,” “Tulsa Time,” and “Nobody But You” helped to make him one of the most-played artists on Country Radio in the 1970s and 1980s. He took home the Male Vocalist of the Year trophy from the Country Music Association in 1978, and notched his biggest hit in 1981 with “I Believe In You,” which also crossed over to the top-30 on the Hot 100.
Subsequent moves to Capitol Nashville and RCA kept Williams on the charts into the 1990s, as he continued to play for huge crowds on the road. His success in the United States is well-documented, but the music of Don Williams has made him an international star – with followings in such places as England and New Zealand. He has placed 52 singles in the top-40 on the Country charts in the United States, with 17 going all the way to the top spot. Williams was a member of the Grand Ole Opry in the 1980s, and appeared in the films W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings and Smokey & The Bandit IIwith Burt Reynolds.
Williams’ most recent album was 2014’s Reflections, which earned the singer his highest peak on the Country Album chart in three decades. Known as “The Gentle Giant,” Williams was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010.

Your tendency is to gaze at problems for prolonged periods of time, glancing at Me for help. This is natural for someone with a fallen mind living in a fallen world. However, I have called you to live supernaturally, and I have empowered you to do so. The Holy Spirit, who lives in all My followers, enables you to live beyond yourself-to transcend your natural tendencies.
Ask My Spirit to help you fix your gaze on Me. Invite Him to alert you whenever you get overly focused on problems so you can redirect your attention to Me. This is hard work, because it is not only unnatural but also countercultural. Moreover, the evil one and his demons seek to distract you from My Presence. All these influences working together put massive pressure on you to pay attention to your problems-or else! So you need the assistance of My Spirit continually. Ask Him to help you deal with difficulties as needed, while reserving the bulk of your attention for Me-your constant Companion.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. -Hebrews 12:2
I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever-the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. -John 14:16-17 nkjv
