Keep on Swimming, Swimming, Swimming…


Ok, I had a Dory moment on Friday evening and ended up with a Dory! LOL! Yes, it is a tattoo. Yes, it is real and permanent. Now, I should also tell you here that the D. in D. Elaine Wood-Lane stands for Doris and Dory is a nickname for Doris. Also, I am hyper and forgetful sometimes…and a little impulsive sometimes. But, I’m also the queen of “Keep on swimming, keep on swimming, keep on swimming, swimming, swimming…” As we started studying the book of Joshua this morning, I was inspired once again to remember that God has not only encouraged us to not be afraid, but: 

Joshua 1:9 (ESV)

9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

So, don’t be afraid! Be strong, be courageous, and keep on swimming, even if you feel like you’re a ditzy dame like me! You have something important God wants you to contribute. Just do it! Happy Memorial weekend and happy Sunday! 

 Love y’all!    Dory/Elaine
