|olympic divers - mid dive|
these divers work hard to have the flexibility, precision, accuracy and stamina to get olympic gold quality dives on a consistant basis. they are amazing. they are passionate. but...they are certainly not pretty. (at least...not in these pictures)
if a guy looked like this while walking down the street and approached you...you'd probably run...or maybe call for an ambulance...
similarly...when we are passionate about or God-called to something...we may not be very pretty. we have to be okay with that. because it's only when we let go and allow ourseves to be a little un-pretty that our passion shows and with God's grace we can come up with some really wonderful stuff...(olympic gold...anyone?)
