Lord teach me the art of patience while I am well,  And give me the use of it when I am sick,  In that day either lighten my burden, or strengthen my back.

Message from Dianne Visser:

Dear Friends, Losing someone we love is traumatic. It was wonderful to see how our Sanctuary members stepped forward to offer a wonderful dedication service for Margaret which supported her sister Pippa and best friend Louise. Thank You to everyone. We are also reminded of the frailty of life, and how important it is that we live each day, with joy, and gratitude. We are only given today, this moment. Hug your partner, smile at your friend, pray spontaneously and love yourself unconditionally. May your month be filled with magical moments that surprise and delight.We ask that you please hold the following people in your prayers: Wendy Marr, James Sharkey, Ron & Elaine Whitham, Louise Goosen, Morgal, Bianca (Kerry-Lee’s daughter)


Please don’t forget …..

Our new charity drive for 2015 will be for Those Who Cannot Speak, the Animal Organisations in our area and local community.  Old towels, blankets
and food will be much appreciated for our furry friends.


Taking  our  Sanctuary into the future
Remember to bring along “signs of our times” relics / memorabilia / coins / newspaper articles / info about our Sanctuary and most of all  –  its members – yes that means YOU. Here is your big chance to tell your story and be remembered. All of the above will placed in a sealed container to be opened in the year 2115.  Your ideas and input will be greatly appreciated to make this event really meaningful.  We are intending to arrange this momentous occasion during the first quarter of 2015 in conjunction with This is an old and very beautiful Sioux Indian Prayer.O Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds, whose breath gives life to the world, I am small and weak. I need your strength and wisdom.May my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.Make my hands respect the things you have made, and my ears sharp to your voice.Make me wise so that I may know the things you have taught your children, the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.Make me strong not to be superior to my brothers and sisters but to be able to fight my greatest enemy, myself. Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes, so that when life fades as the fading sunset, my spirit will come to you without shame. Elaine Whitwam is running a circle at the Sanctuary on Fridays at from 1pm – 2pm.
