Surprise

So I was jogging along our neighborhood's main thoroughfare when I hear the laughter of young girls coming up behind me. They were also singing, and as they passed me on their bicycles I hear "Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so..." They were in the 13-15 age range, voices fading as they disappeared down the street. Considering the normal run of things, it seemed bizarre and refreshing at the same time. I went around the lake and on the leg home I'm huffing and puffing uphill through a fairly ritzy area (by my standards) when I'm brought up short by some words carved into the concrete sidewalk, presumably many years ago when it was first poured. Or, if it had been resurfaced, not so many years ago: Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly with your Lord. Right there in upscale suburbia.

In the end, not a bad day. By my standards. I don't ask for much.
