Spirit Filled Swim

Posted: March 2, 2013 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys

Had a unique and wonderful experience today at the swimming pool.  You see I haven’t been swimming in quite a while, so while my kids had their swimming lessons I decided to swim a few laps.

Then I decided that since it was lent, I would say the Our Father swimming a lap and on the return lap I would say a Hail Mary. After the eighth lap I decided to say the creed.  That’s when the surreal experience began, inspired by the Holy Spirit I sort of chanted this in mind while I swam the last few laps

“Through the deep Red Sea,
from the clutches of slavery,
to liberty of life, praise be to God! ”

“Through the waters of my baptism,
from the bondage of sin,
to liberty in life with Christ, praise be to God!”

Swimming will today and always be extra special for me!  Praise be to God!
