Monkey Bars

I'll be honest.  I had no idea why I wrote the Title as Monkey Bars.  It just came to mind.  And then as I sat quiet for a moment and visualized myself on Monkey Bars it became more clear.

The act of using Monkey bars requires a few things. 

-Climbing a small ladder

-Leaning out to take hold of the first bar

-Letting go of the ladder as you swing to the next bar

-Keeping focus on the finish line (looking UP)

-Not looking back

-You can't do it with only one arm - you must give it full attention

-Keeping your feet up off of the ground so they don't drag

-The will to finish

Yep, now I can TOTALLY see why Monkey Bars popped into my head.  Thank you, Jesus, for that sweet little nugget!

Ooh and a verse just popped into my head!  Goes along with the Monkey Bars perfectly..

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back. 
~Philippians 3:13-14 The Message

YAHOO!!  Make it a great day, no reason not to.  It's, afterall, all up to you! Love you.

We'll chat soon..oh..and no, that's not me in the picture. ;)


  1. my first thought was - OHHH NOOO! Monkey bars! But then I have a history with them. That's how I broke my elbow when the kids were little. But you are right on with the list of things necessary to succeed! Swingin' on the monkey bars, trying to move ahead and get to the goal... that's what I'm doin' - thanks for the image!

  2. That is really awesome Sarah! That is a great example! Really uplifting.
