So True and yep I’m still alive ☺

If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8
Feet and Is entirely open at the top, the
Bird, in spite of its Ability to fly, will
Be an absolute prisoner. The reason is
That a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground
With a Run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space
To run, as is its habit, It will not even
Attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner
For life in a small jail with no top.

The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a
Remarkable  nimble creature in the air,
Cannot take off from a level  place.
If it is placed on the floor or flat
Ground, all it can do is shuffle about
Helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it
Reaches some slight elevation from which it can
Throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it
Takes off like a flash.

mad bee
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will
Be there until it dies, unless it is taken out.
It never sees the means of escape at the
Top, but persists in trying to find some way out
Through the sides near the bottom..  It
Will seek a way where none exists, until it
Completely destroys itself..

In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and
The bumblebee. We struggle about with all our
Problems and frustrations, never realizing that
All we have to do is look up!  That's the
Answer, the escape route and the solution to any
Problem!  Just look up.

child looking up
Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and

Trust in our Creator who loves us.
Sorry I have been MIA, but end of the school year functions are kicking my rear.
Guess this would be a good time to slow down and look up.
But all the running around is burning lots of calories..I have not forgotten about you my muffin top friends.  We can do this…..


  1. I totally love that analogy, thanks so much for sharing it, may I use it sometime?
