The Long Gray Line…

Two years ago, Skylar moved in to our neighborhood. When we discovered she was a Junior Guard, she asked us about the Gray Lunde Junior Lifeguard Ironman. Her older brother and mother advised her to skip the event as too difficult, but we remarked that big tasks are all accomplished with small steps. At the Balboa, finish line a very weary but joyful Skylar announced that she had finished the Ironman. This year we received this note a week after the 2014 Gray Lunde Ironman. She is wearing the yellow cap in the photo."Just go through it."

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.

There we will receive his mercy,

and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

Hebrews 4:16 (NLT)

    You inspired her to do this, and how rewarding for you and Bob to receive this thoughtful note, letting you know she achieved this challenge.

    Bless you both for all of the help that you give to others and for the beautiful way in which you honor Gray!
