Sailing - October 24, 2009

I have this amazing friend, G, who is helping me with my big Christmas project. She and her husband also own a sailboat. They offered to take me sailing one Saturday. I absolutely LOVED it! I jokingly told G that now I have another thing to put on my list....if I ever do get remarried, he has to know how to sail! It was such a great experience.

One thing that really struck me was how scared I would have been if I did not trust these two people that were sailing the boat. It was very windy and many times the boat tilted way over to one direction or another. It was all part of sailing, but without that trust I would've been terrified. I guess that is a type of the trust that we need in our Savior. We don't have to be terrified of this life. He is the sailor and He knows what He is doing.

This is just a random picture LD took of me a day or two later. When he saw me going through pictures he wanted me to post it, too....wet hair, make-up-less and all!

I went sailing once with my mom's cousin and I hated it! I was so petrified! I love the lake and water skiing and such, but sailing is NOT for me! Glad you had fun though!

P.S. I wish I looked as cute with no makeup on and wet hair; I look like a drowned rat! I know it was supposed to be a silly pic, but what struck me is what absolutely beautiful skin and bright blue eyes you have!

I was so glad you went sailing. So soothing. And you always look great-with makeup or without!

Great to read your posts! That sailing looks like something I must do. You are in great shape - good for you. I have a shape, just not a good one. Love you!
