Pedal, pedal, pedal
Well, thanks to my then (last summer) almost 3 year old grandson, Camden, I have a new one for you. He was learning to ride his bike with training wheels, yes he could barely reach the pedals, but that didn't stop him. He was with his grandpa, Johnny, at our house outside practicing riding his bike. Johnny heard him saying: pedal, pedal, pedal. Grandpa observed his determination in coaching himself on how to ride his bike. Pedal, pedal, pedal.
There is a lesson in this story for all of us. What are you pedaling for?
What do you need to remind yourself how to do? Pedal, pedal, pedal.
What are some challenges that you are facing? Pedal, pedal, pedal.
Are you putting one foot in front of the other? Pedal, pedal, pedal.
Take baby steps if you have to. Pedal, pedal, pedal.
Always know the goal you strive to reach. Pedal, pedal, pedal
Dream it. Pedal, pedal, pedal.
Just go get it! Pedal, pedal, pedal.
Out of the mouth of babes we can learn a lot about life.
Those little babies can teach us so much.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14 They are a wise, courageous, innocent bunch even Jesus knew this!
So what it is you need to pedal towards today?
Let my grandson's words of wisdom guide you on this day.
Pedal, Pedal, Pedal!
