Life Saver


Pete and Re Pete were sitting on a boat, Pete fell off. Who was left? Re Pete. Pete and Re Pete were sitting on a boat, Pete fell off. Who was left? Re Pete.

Sometimes this just sounds a little too familiar in my so called life! Get up, take care of house, kids, dinner, laundry, go to sleep, wake up .... repeat.

Sometimes this just sounds a little too familiar with the mistakes that I make. Make a mistake, fix the problem...repeat.

Sometimes this just sounds a little too familiar with my Faith. Walking on an obedient and faithful path with Christ, take a wrong turn... repeat.

In life there are many repeats, and do overs. The best thing we can do, is get back in the boat, dry off, and keep rowing.

In life sometimes the best, most fun, adventurous, silly, crazy times are when we fall out of the boat... and sometimes it just plain sucks!
During those times, its good to know that the people who love you the most will not let you drown, but throw you a life saver, to help lift you back in!

Thanks to the ones, who have thrown me many, many lifesavers, who have jumped in after me, and who sit beside me rowing!
ps. could somebody throw me a line...I fell out... again

I agree! It seems that Repeat just won't fall out of my boat no matter how many times I try to throw him overboard! Everyday.... same routine except for the occasional IPEZ retreats. HEHE
