Hi! This is Meaghan stepping in for Jake with today’s Toe Tapper.
I have a quick story to go with this CCR song. It had been running through my head, and then one day last week I took a photo of our oldest daughter running around a bend in the cross-country course at Maxwell Park. At the time, the two did not relate, but when I looked at the picture later, it seemed to illustrate the chorus of this song. Her feet were flying, and we were outside on a gorgeous fall day. Have you ever had something like that happen where random things in your mind just click, and it lifts your spirits? I do not think these moments are merely coincidental. The image of Maggie running around the bend and ready to kick things into high gear, when things often seem to be at a standstill in the world lately, really stuck with me this week. I think we can take these little happy moments and let them remind us that there is so much good in this beautiful world. Even when we are on a path that seems a little unpredictable, we can keep going and press on toward the goal set before us. One step at a time. Do the next right thing. Things in our country and our world, and even in our own little lives, can be frustrating and bring us down, but we can always look around the bend. One foot in front of the other. There are still good times ahead, people to see, love to share. Keep on running your race, whatever that may look like. If you need help, remember to say a little prayer and talk to someone who cares. There’s always time for good conversation! I would also recommend getting outside to enjoy the trees and the breeze; you can walk and just imagine what it would be like to have as much energy as a cross country runner! Maybe this song running through your heart will put a little pep in your step, too.
