It’s a Stretch!

“Bend until you fall; just bend until you fall.” Those were my mother’s famous
words as she taught countless children how to dive in the water from the side of the pool. It was sound advice. For diving. But not such sound advice for doing
exercises for example, or reaching down to pick something up off the floor.

I am always amazed and –admittedly, envious-as I watch children at play. They are like pretzels! They think nothing of lunging for a ball just out of reach; when they fall in their attempts to catch a ball, they just roll on the ground-oftentimes even rolling to the ball.

There are times to bend and there are times when we get bent out of shape. There is a difference. See you on Sunday where bent or straight, there is a place for you!
