I made it to the other side, it was the coming back that swamped me. Fighting a strong wind and waves I wasn't sure I could take much more. The rest of our group had already lapped us and made it back to shore... hope seemed dashed.

The kind, like Ephesians talks about, where we love one another, respect one another, care for one another as Christ did for the church.
