White Water and Calm Water

Have you ever been through white waters? I have. In a canoe. Very scary.

When rafting in white water you don't often have to use your paddle to move or propel yourself forward. Often you use that paddle to just direct your canoe or raft in the right direction. The white water takes care of moving you usually in the right direction.

When rafting in calm water, you must often do a lot of work to keep yourself moving forward by paddling in addition to using the paddle to making sure you are going in the right direction.

Sometimes life is just like that. Sometimes trials are like that. Sometimes it is scary, sometimes it is fun and sometimes it borders on both and you want to wet yourself. During difficult trials all you can do sometimes is just use your paddle to make sure you are going in the right direction. Calm waters seem easier but also require a lot more work to keep yourself moving forward. "Floating" doesn't always get you where you need.

So here is to a combination of both calm and white waters to keep us going in the right direction at the right speed!!
