I...um...okay...um...here we go....well....um...maybe!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is a minute of a video clip?
Today was the annual swim and dive competition at the Lake Geneva Beach Association and this was the diving contest. Meet Chloe, seven years old and this is her first dive.
What you're about to see had already been going on with some variation for almost two minutes already...



(If the video doesn't come through on the email feed try clicking here to see it on the webpage - http://thinking-on-these-things.blogspot.com/2010/07/iumokayumhere-we-gowellmaybeum.html)

She started and stopped and started and ....well, you saw and get the picture.
She reminded me of myself when I set out to do something I know I should; or when I'm starting a new venture. Just...so....not....certain....maybe.....um.....go now....or.....maybe not.

The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. For he understands how weak we are; he knows we are only dust. Psalms 103:13,14

He knows my weaknessess. He understands my starts and stops and though my steps are faltering He is always tender and compassionate.

How great is our God and how much we should praise Him! Psalms 48:1
