Here we go again! A "new BIG WHEEL"!!! But, is it? Let me see... there is a boy, a small wheel, a big wheel in the back, a place to sit and then something new (which is at the same time something old)... a bell on the handlebar!!! I wish they had this little pleasure vehicle instead of that all plastic one I remember. The one that made all the noise on the gravel as it went UP AND DOWN, THEN UP AND DOWN AND UP AND DOWN the little hill in front of our house in Valley Falls. The one that kept me up all day, when I should have been sleeping (I worked midnight to 8 in the morning). But, honestly, this is a big improvement! This looks great and far more comfortable that the one I remember. But, it is STILL A BOB'S BIG BOY TOY TO ME. Nothing really changes, a toy is still a toy, no matter what it looks like. Solomon put it this way...
WEB: Ecclesiastes 1:9. That which has been is that which shall be; and that which has been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
We have more technology, better tools, clever marketing and sexy models to sell it all, but basically a toy is still a toy. Kids grow out of them like last year's shoes. The barrage of "things" to buy is ever greater with each passing year, but generically nothing changes, even though it may appear different. I am glad God doesn't change; that I can always count on him to be there and do the right thing!
All this being said; the new "big wheel" is a beautiful thing! I wonder, does God have toys....?
