“Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do.” David Wilkerson
Millions of people around the world celebrate Valentine’s Day, many will buy gifts to express their feelings and many will show love in other ways, this is because our loved ones are an important part of our lives. Valentine’s Day is a good reminder of how essential it is to express our love in ways that those close to us will appreciate: be it words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service or physical touch. While Valentine’s Day is a great time to show your love, it is important to express your love every day. It can be the simplest of things like saying, ‘I love you.’ When two people truly care for one another it is the little things that mean the most.
Making quality time to spend together is one of the best ways to affirm your love and show your care. When life gets busy and time is in short supply it is important to:
Take a look at your life’s priorities as well as your family’s. Do you all have crazy schedules where you can’t fit in any quality time to spend together? Re-evaluate what is important and necessary in your schedules. Is there anything that you can all drop from your regular routines? Perhaps you can all scale back on some activities and commitments. Maybe you can rearrange some of your priorities in order to spend more time with loved ones.
Although it is ideal to have large blocks of time together with your loved ones, it is not always possible. And while it is wonderful to spend time together as a group, that’s not always possible either. So grab special moments whenever and wherever possible – if you are driving the kids to school, turn the music, iPads and smartphones off and have a conversation, find out about each other’s day, tell silly jokes. Make it a ritual. Observe your daily routines to see where you can fit some memorable moments of quality time in.
When you are making quality time for others, be respectful of everyone’s time and personal boundaries. While getting together is important, it shouldn’t become a chore or something that everyone dreads. There may be time when you want to get together and some loved ones choose to opt out. While it may be disappointing for the group, respect their decision as an individual. Perhaps they need their space or privacy and will be available some other time.
Spending quality time with loved ones is important. Life passes by too quickly to ignore opportunities to connect with those we love. Whether it is a few minutes or many days, choose to spend some quality time together!
Johannesburg – Eskom has to reduce the number of white engineers by 1 081 and white artisans by 2 179 in order to comply with strict new South African Government requirements, according to a report by specialist labour writer Jan de Lange in the Sunday newspaper Rapport.
The new directives require embattled Eskom, the best performing public enterprise in the affirmative action race, to ensure that these two key job categories become “completely reflective of the national and regional demographics” by 2020.
Some 6 530 people, of whom 30% or 1 786 are white, currently occupy “professional and mid-management” positions at Eskom.
These are mostly highly trained engineers.
1 081 white employees in these categories, where 70,6% of employees are currently black, need to be shed until 705 remain.
Of the 21 372 “technically skilled” employees at Eskom 4 487 or 21% are white. By 2020 some 2 179 will have to leave.
A top Eskom manager who told Rapport two years ago Eskom was transforming too rapidly, said Saturday, “It will be catastrophic if our affirmative action targets now lead to the estrangement of people whose skills we need.”

When you are waiting, waiting, waiting for longed-for answers to prayer, it takes courage to continue hoping in Me. The world, the flesh, and the devil all tell you it’s easier to just give up and give in to dull disappointment. In a sense, this is true. To keep praying with positive expectation requires a lot of effort and perseverance; giving up is momentarily easier. However, a resigned, I-give-up attitude is always hurtful in the long run. Often, this leads to cynicism-and eventually to despair. So it’s well worth the effort to keep your hopefulness alive.
Courage comes from the French word for heart. Since I live in your heart, you can call upon Me to help you live courageously-facing adversity or danger with confidence and determination. I am well aware of your circumstances, and I take pleasure in helping you cope with them. So stand firm in My strength, beloved, refusing to give in or give up. I take pleasure in you always, but especially when you are bravely hoping in My steadfast Love.
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of [the nations in the Promised Land]; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. -Deuteronomy 31:6 nkjv
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. -Ephesians 1:18-19
The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. -Psalm 147:1
