Welcome, Welcome !!

  As you have most probably noticed, Michael's Humble Abode has changed name and had a face lift! I am proud to announce that the once proud batchelour called Michael L Griifin is now extremely fortunate to be married to the most stunning woman in the world, Jean pictured left. Don't you agree? She is gorgeous beyond meager words!

  In honour of this momentus occasion, I have renamed this humble virtual home to "Michael & Jeans Humble Abode".

  It would not be fitting to bring a new wife into an old batchelor pad so the site got a face lift too and now includes Jean.

As of 8 April 2004, Jean and I have been blessed with a bouncing 3.5KG little boy, Cameron Lee. SO much for those afternoon naps and decent sleep but I would not trade it for the world! Admittedly it has been a huge adjustment, social life has taken a knock as not everywhere is baby/toddler friendly and trips to the game reserviors are on hold till Cameron can enjoy it too - he finds that period of time driving slowly through the bush torture but this will hopefully change soon!

Cameron is growing rapidly and at 18 months the "Terrible Two's" have started early. He has been walking for almost a year now (dang time flies) and the house is never tidy which can be frustrating but it is part of the deal.

About us as a Family

  Well, they have been close friends since the beginning of 1988 when Michael walked up to Jean, gave her his address and asked her to write to him. He had ... how to put this ... ghutspa!

  She decided "What the hell, lets write" and I quote: "I don't know if you remember me but I am the girl you gave address to and asked to write to you...". He'll never admit it but he more than likely wondered which ONE this was ... heheheh Just kidding! They never looked back since. There were opportunities for developing the friendship further but when ever one was 'available' the other was not. Because of this, it took them almost 15 (yes, fifteen) long years before they finally got it through there thick skins that they were meant for each other and tied the knot on the 9th day of August in the year of our Lord 2002. Woman's day as it was.

  This day was deliberately chosen. Jeans reason was that their anniversary would fall on a public holiday which is honoured by most countries. Michael's reason : "I get away with skipping this woman's day stuff coz the anniversary is more important and it is easy to remember coz public holidays are big things for the working class" I'll leave it there before he changes feet.

Who is Michael? Who is Jean?

  Simply Put, Michael is me, myself and I!

  Who am I you ask?  You have come to the right place.

I am Michael Lee Griffin.  I live in Centurion, Gauteng, South Africa and married to Jean.  I have a younger sister, Janene, who is married to Albert Strauss and now living in Mountain View in Pretoria.  My dad works for the hyperama Head Office Johannesburg and my mom is a Home Exec who spends the vast majority of her time working at the Lyttelton Methodist Church

I work as a "IT Specialist - AIX discipline" for IBM South Africa.  I used to work for a corporate retail company but took a huge risk and resigned from there to follow a career that is also my hobby ... Computers.  I also play guitar and worship, along with Jean and our son Cameron, at Christ Church Midrand.

As you may have gathered, I am a Rock Solid Radically Saved Jesus Freak!!!  Jesus Christ became an real part of my life in August 1986 while a leader on a youth camp.  It is here that I first met Him and gave Jesus Christ  my whole and entire life.  It has been a difficult walk since then.  Then again, Jesus never promised an easy ride, rather the He will never leave us orphans (John 14:7) and He will give us the strength we need to face life (Philippians 4:13).  Jesus gave everything for us (John 3:16), so I give the little I have back.

Jesus Christ is the Saviour of this lost & broken world.

My Testimony will give you a little more insight into who I am

  To start off... I am a Psychologist - don't let that scare you - I only do insane people, that is why I married Michael
