I wish I could dive into a pool of transparency.
Not a transparent pool, rather, a pool that makes ME transparent.
When I stand on the edge and look over the water,
I am scared, but I know the refreshment that awaits.
Is it the jump that I fear—
 Or that moment of shock when my flesh hits the surface?
Is it the cool water that I long for—
Or the thrill in my heart when I launch myself, liberated, into the air?
Will either bring refreshment?
 Will either bring pain?
Will I ever find out?

This is not in reference to anything in particular...just something I think about a lot, and the topic was brought up in Bible Study tonight.  Another good reminder to walk in the light.

No matter how old you get, no matter how old she gets...
Don't forget it.
Some things never change.

I love you guys. :)
