Out on the water...
Yesterday I went kayaking, and out on the water with nothing but sea and sky, the sound of the wind and the waves-- it was a taste of heaven. Kayaking can be hard work, though; your arms are constantly rowing, steering, guiding the kayak through the sometimes resistant, choppy sea water. I couldn't help but think, on our way back to the boat launch, as I pushed and pulled that oar, how all things of value require hard work. From sports to marriage, all things of value require hard work, even pain.
