Stronger

Late December 2019, instead of changing into my swimwear and dashing into the water (after a hot 30-min walk), I found myself sitting on the banks of Rio Don Diego, Colombia, oddly reflective. I pondered the upcoming year and one of the paths I felt God was trying to set me on (at the time…

But…will You catch me?

I am a water lover with a shameful secret… I can’t swim! Horrible?! I know right?! 😅 I had the below experience a while back… Please turn on video captions, if you are not a patois speaker or can’t hear clearly. I hope you laughed as much as I did when I came across this…
