Personal Ramblings

life is like a bicycle

This is for MC . . .

Albert Einstein had a son who struggled with mental illness. Imagine that. Here was a genius, a man with so much to his name and fame, someone everyone looked to for solutions to problems. Yet he couldn’t fix life for his son. In a letter to his son, he said “Life is like a bicycle. To keep your balance, you should keep moving.”

Life is a struggle. Sometimes we are on the bike, sometimes we fall off. But it’s a good thing all of us don’t fall off at the same time! When I fall, I am glad for those who prop me up, dust me off, and help me get back on.

Getting back on the bike is key. Getting through tough times is possible with the support of one another and believing that “a life submitted to God cannot fail.” (paraphrasing . . . .it’s somewhere in Jeremiah!)
