"Let go and let God." - Unknown
There are few metaphors that represent life better than that of swimming. Think about it. You have to pull yourself forward but also take time to catch your breath. At times you glide through smooth waters and other times you struggle to keep from going under. It seems to me life is one long lap in the pool.
