I love how inspiration works. Truly! A friend and I were exchanging some comments on his blog, Devotional Treasures. He was talking about meds, or medication, and that made me think of my alarms – that help me take my meds at the right times. Medication needs to be taken carefully, having considered all the potential risks and side effects. You expect your doctor to have checked that whatever medication you’re being prescribed is either safe, or at least that the side effects are worth while should they exist. But, when you start mixing medication, that has multiple applications, you can end up in a world of trouble. Again, this is where we put a lot of faith in our doctor to have thought that through as well, and to warn patients about common side effects, or the issues of other drugs and mediation you could take which might mess with the medication you have already been prescribed.
When we go cycling, things can stick to our tyres. If you go mountain biking, you might end up with plenty of mud liberally applied to your bike. And if you’re really unfortunate, you’ll end up with a clay/grass mix that will stick to the outside of your tyre, and weight your bike down enough that you struggle up hills you can normally cycle up, without much effort or thought. Well this is exactly what happened to Jo, and her bike, when we were out Mountain Biking one day. It seemed as though the weight of her bike had been doubled! And holding a pile of it in my hands, after I’d scraped it off her bike, I could easily believe it.
