I’d see him, from time-to-time, around the new building but really didn’t give it too much thought.

Galatians 6:4 -Each one should test their own actions

A few years ago my wife started swimming again after a long hiatus. We had moved, and she didn’t pull the trigger on joining a gym with a pool; finally, she did. Her goal was to swim nonstop for twenty minutes three days per week. She quickly reached her goal, so she added some “in …
