After a week that was so hard for a Coloradan, it is such a relief to watch the Olympics. And to have a young girl from the high school my nephews went to, from the high school that used to be part of the university that is my alma mater, well, just from Colorado – be an Olympian is a wonderful, affirming thing. I know the video is “viral,” but I had never seen it. Even if you are not interested in the Olympics or the US Swimming Team, it is a beautiful thing to watch these young perfect people at the peak of their perfection, in a moment of fun.
Thank God this week is over.
I am now going to hit the trails. I rained last night, there will be raindrops on the yucca, and the trail may be too muddy for the mountain bikers – which would be a bonus.
Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. — Matthew 18:3
