Riding a Bicycle

I was 5 when I got my first bicycle.  It was a beautiful blue Schwinn.  I loved it.  I rode it around for two years and then my Dad decided it was time for the training wheels to come off. For weeks he and my mom ran along behind me holding the seat, and then letting go hoping I would keep going on my own.  Of course I crashed every time.  Finally one day, my Dad got tired of it before I did, and said he was going in.  I picked up the bike, got on and started pedaling all on my own.  I did it.  I rode a bike without training wheels.  I will never forget the look on his face that I did it on my own after all the times they tried to help me.

Laughter

Laughing is the best medicine.  Unless you’re laughing to no reason… then you need medicine.

Prisoner or Pioneer

Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.

Acts of Kindness

If every person on the planet who calls themselves a Christian would do just one act of kindness for somebody else every day, it wouldn’t be long before you would see people coming to Christ in mass numbers.

Dreams

Keep your heart open to dreams. For as long as there’s a dream, there is hope, and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living.
