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.

  1. Your post made me think about exercise and how resistance exercise increase one's strength. The only thing in the way of increasing our strength in all realms and situations in our lives is ourselves, the choice to push on through the resistance (waves of life) or give up...Thank you for sharing and What a wonderful way to spend your day...Holy Hugs
