Rowing Lake Vic


I went down to the fish market in Munyonyo yesterday and bribed a fisherman to let me take his boat out for a row. It was a massive, heavy 4 seater, with rivets that made it sturdier than I expected. There was still the smell of talapia embedded in the wood. Away from the shore, the air was sweet, and the expansive lake opened up in front of me. I past several abandoned islands, noting them for future exploration, and a campsite cum marina that had a few weekenders gearing up for a jaunt in the Lake. The way back was against the current, so I spent most of the time rowing hard and squinting to line the bow up with the point on land that I was aiming for. It was a good two hour row, and certainly left me feeling the ache this morning.

  • Lake Vic (is that Victoria?) So beautiful and serene looking! This is a really nice site and glad I dropped by! Thanks for sharing with me! I am so glad there are people like you around! There are a lot of Christians (people) who "fret and worry" over every little thing and to do so is also known as DOUBT and to be in doubt is not to have the faith that GOD gave unto us so therefore it is SIN! Wow! What a grabber huh!? Yes, GOD says that we are "full of seed". Pregnant is the word HE used for us. All we have to do is allow HIS word to come forth in us and we bring forth HIS children in us (HIS FRUITS) and we become more like HIM in all we do and say! You know the days are passing very fast as GOD said that the "time shall be shortened" in the last days, remember? Well we are there and the last days are upon us, so these days keep turning into weeks and weeks into months and years before we know it, they're gone again and soon there shall be no more as we know them! You know though if you stop and think about it and recall the pleasures of heaven and the peace it brings and all of the love and joy that abound in HIS presence, and if we are HIS child, then WHY should we fear it? Some people do fear the end! It should be the very greatest blessing to us! Something to be "looked forward" to with greatest excitement! Well, you stay safe and be blessed and I will pray all will be well with you always. In HIS love, Katie
