We are back to swimming lessons at a neighbor’s pool this summer. Christopher’s children are doing beginner lessons for the first time. Nathan’s children have been having lessons for several years now. They are doing very well.
Sometimes as a child begins learning a new stroke, it seems complicated and almost impossible. I watch them put their minds to it, practice with drills, and then with the pieces all together. Sure enough—suddenly it comes together. That happened for Bethany and Christina Tuesday with sidestroke. We were all excited.
I would never have guessed in my teen years of lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons that one day I would have the joy of working with my own grandchildren!
Trusting in Jesus,
“For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations” (Psalm 100:5).
