“It’s not often I take a dip in the sea. Being on the south coast of England, the English Channel, even in summer, isn’t exactly warm! But on Saturday I felt brave enough to step in and go for a quick swim. This initially involved much screaming, ‘Oh gosh, it’s so cold!’ but eventually I got used to it and enjoyed the playtime in the water, splashing about and letting the waves carry me. It’s made me think of the shock and uncertainty of new directions in life. Even though I believe that God is always guiding me, his presence is never more closely felt (and needed) than when I’m taking a step into something new and jarring. (photo by my husband)”
