Life's special ramblings include indelible memories of childhood. These kids will remember our neighbor, Wendy, leading them around the cul-de-sac on her new bicycle. It was a perfect afternoon to play.
For a lot of us, the old bike memories linger. It was one of our first tastes of freedom --- riding around the neighborhood and beyond, enjoying the rush of wind in our face, racing with your buddies. But there was a price to pay --- being chased by mean dogs, getting a flat tire miles from home, crashing in front of your friends.
We have a thing about freedom and wind in our face. "They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall rise up with wings as eagles." Isaiah 40:31
