get back up

When my daughter Allison was little I used to try and teach her to get back up when you fall down.  I would carefully bundle her up and plop her on the floor and then ask her - What do you do when you get knocked down?  She learned quickly.  Ask her today, what do you do when you get knocked down and she will answer - you get back up.

Chumbawamba sang a song in 1997  "I get knocked down, but I get up again."

Sometimes in life we have to do exactly this.  Get back up.  Everyone gets knocked down, and we don't like it.  But we can lay there and cry and complain, or we can get up and go on.  Those that would succeed in any endeavor must get back up.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
