Celebrating independence from injury
Four years ago, I was celebrating our country’s Independence Day. It was a beautiful summer day, and our family was enjoying an afternoon with friends at their lake house. When it was my turn to water ski, I made a mistake and went too wide at the end of a run. With the lake being narrow and the boat needing to make a sharp turn, I was whipped around so quickly that I lost control. Because of my excessive speed, I somersaulted over the water in the most colossal wipeout I have ever experienced in my decades of water skiing.
When I finally came to a stop, I formed a large circle with my arms above my head, which is the “OK” sign to a boat driver. I also felt giving an OK sign was a way of reassuring myself that I could claim my perfection as the unbroken child of God, made and maintained perfectly by my creator, and that all truly was well.
