Today the reading was on transitions.  The devotional writer spoke of the transition a professional athlete has to make when he “retires.”

The emphasis was on not doing it all your way, but seeking for help.  The help described was God – the first and primary point of call.

I have found in my life also, that God is first.  But after that, you’d better be open for your fellow lifeboat members to give you a hand.

They will bail for you, tell you when storms are approaching, even relieve you of a night watch so you can get some respite.

Chose your companions well.  Life will be so much better!
