Nagverse: 'n Digbundel (Afrikaans, Paperback): Koos van der Merwe, Claudi Nagverse: 'n Digbundel (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Koos van der Merwe, Claudi
R125 Discovery Miles 1 250 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Koos van der Merwe nooi jou uit om met hierdie digbundel te besin oor wat régtig saak maak: geld, status, mense? Jy word gelei om te besef dat jy nooit moet vergeet wie jou hartsmense is nie.

Elke mens wonder soms oor die lewe. Ons almal kry seer. Ons het lief. Ons word op die een of ander stadium ontnugter en stoei met geloof. Ons is geneig om soms net so bolangs te leef omdat ons te bang is om ons vrese en drome te konfronteer.

Met hierdie versameling verse wil Koos jou uitnooi om te besin oor wat régtig saak maak: geld, status, mense? Jy word gelei om te besef dat jy nooit moet vergeet wie jou hartsmense is nie.

Hy laat jou binneste reis na daardie ervarings wat pynlik was en jy word uitgedaag om jou pyn ’n naam te gee. Seerkry wat geďgnoreer word sal elke keer terugkom en jou weer treiter.

Konfronteer eerder jou issues en werk daardeur, dan sal jy genesing vind.

Moenie jou verlede vergeet nie. Koos vra jou om die tye van “heilige afsprake” en “ontmoetings met Lig” te koester, want “om jou verlede te ag is die anker van jou toekoms.”

Die temas van God en geloof word ook aangeraak en jy kom diep onder die indruk van jou afhanklikheid van Sy genade.

For the first time in paperback, this Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary takes readers aged 8+ on a phizz-whizzing, splendiferous, fantabulous journey deep into the language of Roald Dahl's bestselling children's stories. This is a dictionary which will develop language and literacy skills by igniting the creativity in all readers and writers everywhere. Lots of dictionaries tell you what an 'alligator' is, or how to spell 'balloon' but they won't explain the difference between a 'ringbeller' and a 'trogglehumper', or say why witches need 'gruntles' eggs' or suggest a word for the shape of a 'Knid'. This dictionary does all those things. All the words that Roald Dahl invented are here, like 'biffsquiggled' and 'whizzpopping' to remind you what means what, but that is not all. You'll also find out where words came from, rhyming words, synonyms and lots of alternative words for words that are overused. Oxford Children's Dictionaries are perfect for supporting literacy and learning and this is the world's first Roald Dahl Dictionary from the word experts at Oxford University Press.
