A Splash That Won't Bring Serenity!

Would you jump in this lake? Nope!

Dan and I took a hike to Felix Lake in Florida with our son and his wife. Sam and Katie wanted to shock us, I think, and show us the dangers that await so close to their home.

Danger signs are to be obeyed. We wouldn't swim in this lake, but do we splash and play in other waters that cause death?

"Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires.... Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming." Colossians 3:5-6

Whoa! Everybody out of the pool! I don't want to tangle with an alligator or an angry God. Do you?

God says "Have NOTHING to do with sexual immorality..." What part of that verse do we not understand? It's a WARNING sign we need to obey, because that swim not only kills marriages, it chews on our children for dessert!

Want a splash of serenity? Obey Colossians 3.

Blessings as we swim around those thoughts!



  1. Elaine,

    I like this analogy - as I look at "warning" and "danger" signs, Col 3 will come to mind. Thank you! Glad you enjoyed your visit with Sam and Katie and you have learned to stay out of the water. LOL


  2. Elaine! Wow! The plain horse facts about this sign is it's a riot! RECREATION AREA? You've got to be kidding.
    I enjoyed your blog. This theme reminds me of that saying, "Sin: Enter at Your Own Risk."
    By the way, congrats on the new book.

  3. Thanks Marsha and Lisa. You both inspire me!


I would love hearing from you! Thanks for sharing!
