The Desire of God
When I was about 7 or 8 years old, I just about drowned. I went swimming with Greg and Nancy, my neighborhood friends. Nancy was a little older. Greg and I were the same age. We went to this community pool. I remember it was very busy in the pool. Lots of kids. I had taken some swimming lessons. But I could not yet fully swim. I remember being by the edge of the pool nearer the deeper end. So I couldn’t touch the bottom and keep my head above water. By I wanted to try and see what it was like.
