“Leaders and their people will face many days of rough waters. Strong and confident leaders know how to navigate through storms and rough waters.

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. I have often enjoyed the still waters of a lake on a beautiful warm day. It is so refreshing and relaxing. Psalm 23 talks about the Lord leading beside still waters. This Psalm is very special to me. Have a blessed day today and always.

Still waters may be deep but they don't present much of a challenge. As a sailor in my youth, calm and still waters meant you weren't going to get much done other than cleaning the boat. Now throw in a breeze and rough waters to sail through and you were going to have a great day!

I’ve been in some rough water when aboard the USS Enterprise CVN 65. We took water over the bow, onto the flight deck. Quite the experience!
