Death is dead......


It is indeed the day death died. But I am so sad. When I Googled “Easter” out of curiosity, all I found were pictures of coloured eggs and rabbits. Death died on this day for those who choose Life. Dear Jesus, forgive us, for we know not what we do………………..

Dear Oscar.....



 hmmm, I wrote this more than 2 years ago...  can't believe so much time has passed...

Dear Oscar

I feel compelled to write to you – I know you will never read this.  I know sending this into Cyberspace is probably not the best idea I have had and I know for a fact that what I believe happened is not important at all. 

I have younger brothers and a stepson almost your age.  I am very, very thankful that each message I have ever sent to my husband is not being displayed and dissected. I am thankful that every word I have ever said is not being analysed.

I can just imagine that you must be wondering how you ended up where you are now.  I don't event want to think what it feels like to be you at this stage.....

But I really have to get this off my chest.

First of all – you need to know that my heart goes out to you and everyone else involved in this tragedy and I am not judging you at all. I am the last person to pass judgment on anyone.

Secondly – you need to know that Jesus Christ died on a Cross for your sins and my sins.  He loves you and me despite our sins.

Thirdly, you need to please tell the truth.

“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” -Proverbs 28:13

You are a talented, attractive and gifted young man. You have made mistakes – as all of us have. You made a big mistake on that fatal Valentine’s morning. But I do believe it was just a mistake. I don’t believe your life was in danger. I really believe that you and Reeva had an argument that went horribly wrong. I say this because I was also your age and in passionate relationships full of emotions and I also locked myself in bathrooms with an upset lover on the other side. Thankfully none of us ever had a gun. If either of us did have a gun – I am sure I would have been in the position you are in now, or dead - like Reeva.

I used to claim I was a Christian while I was having sex out of wedlock as well as doing all sorts of other really stupid, immoral things. Now I know that it is impossible to serve God while having sex with someone you are not married to.  I am struggling to picture you and Reeva praying to Jesus Christ before getting into into bed and having sex. Why did you say that? It is very sad that you would think so little of Christ that you would say or do that.

I have been listening to your testimony the past few days. I understand that you are fighting for what you think is your life and freedom, but even if you are acquitted, and you don’t tell the truth, you will be in prison for the rest of your life.

If you are telling the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, then I apologise and I will retract everything I have said here.

I really pray that you are telling the truth ………… for your sake.

Remember that you are Loved with a Love that is neverending and that your name too, is engraved in Holy Palms.
