The olive farmer

Olive oil does not grow in bottles from olive trees- it would be nice though.

This is what ‘Abundance’ looks like, I learned this week…

March over to the olive grove.
Shake a tree.
Catch the olives.
Bucket them and then decide what you are going to make if it…

It is only- once you see all the fruit gathered in one bucket that you realize what you were not aware of before. You already have what you need. But… it’s going to take some sweat to make the buckets of fruit work for you. Now to decide to make pickled olives/jam/tapenade/olive oil. You have to take the bucket to the next level- never will I take that good old olive oil bottle for granted again!

I hope you also discover what will fill your bucket(s) abundantly this Covid season.

>In the picture: Mia the cat was helping to farm my buckets this week: lying on top of my computer keyboard, digging my garden holes deeper(and then peeing in them) and she nearly tilted the bucket filled with olives!
>Skemeraand is a new song written by Johan Koorts and his school friends during lockdown, musical arrangement by Bram Potgieter. I loved singing it! You can listen to it here bit.ly/2yeq2uC
>It’s an early olive: #SpeakAfrikaansEasily Online course is available! You are welcome to check for spelling mistakes etc. Me? I’m just happy I finished something… I’ll send you the link/code.
>AT LAST! A Slideshow(365 Inspirational quotes with wild flowers from my backyard forest- link below): it took 4 years of taking pictures and more than a year’s inspirational quotes brought together. I used all the minibreaks while making the online course to edit it(yes you are welcome to help me tweak it)-four days of sitting on my butt in front of the computer-Listened through The Message Bible in 5 days(I learned: musicians sing and tell the stories of the people so the people remember how blessed they are on their journey from A to B. In King David’s time they got free food and lodging, plenty of practice time and made the country rejoice: that was their job. Oh and write songs: new ones…of course)
>A lot of ppl have been asking about how to collect money online – especially street musicians and artists. I figured out Snapscan and paypal.me. Drop me a note if you want me to explain what I know. It is tricky but easy enough- once you have set it up it is easy!
>Song of the week is The Widow’s Olive Oil. Die weduwee se kruik. Your ‘I have nothing’ is the last drop of the beginning of abundance. (You can read the story in 2 Kings 4). She had to ask her neighbor’s help: all the containers/buckets she could find to put the oil in. I can only imagine what a big job is would have been: pouring all that oil from her tiny jar!

Ching-ching-ching(Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik.)

Koor: Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik.
Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik
Is dit te min
vir ‘n wonderwerk?
Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik.
Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik.
Is dit te min
vir ‘n wonderwerk?

Word my laaste druppel
U eerste druppel.
Bodemloos en in oorvloed
Here maak my oë oop…
As die laaste druppel val
Met my laaste beste
maak God die kruike vol.

ching ching ching
ja Here, ek sien…
ching ching ching
ja Here, ek sien…

Koor: Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik.
Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik
Is dit te min
vir ‘n wonderwerk?
Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik.
Net ‘n bietjie olie in my kruik.
Is dit te min
vir ‘n wonderwerk?

Instr

Word my laaste druppel
die eerste druppel
Bodemloos en oorvloed
Heer maak my oë oop…
Word my laaste druppel
Met my laaste beste
en God maak die kruike vol.

ja Here, ek sien…
