Falling Down and Getting Back Up …
There’s a song that says in its lyrics saints are just sinners that fall down but get back up. All people are sinners. Nobody’s perfect.
I seriously doubt that I’ll ever become an officially formally ordained saint. I don’t even know how that happens. But I like the point of the song … that the only thing that really separates the saints from the rest of us is that they didn’t remain down when they fell. They got back up to continue their journey on a righteous path.
If you want to be inspired and see how falling down and getting back can lead to accomplishing something great, go online and watch Heather Dorniden’s amazing finish to her 600 meter race.
She fell. She got back up. She finished. She won.
