Winter Olympians

From Blog10

Athletes training, straining
Toward a goal,
Always aching, breaking,
Never whole.

Twisting, jumping, pumping
To a music beat;
Wildly racing, placing
In a heat.

Legends spinning, winning
Bronze or gold,
But soon aging, raging--
Bodies old.

...for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
--1 Timothy 4:8

Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward.
--2 John 1:8
