the buzzard, the bat & the bee


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 BAT*****


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.




  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! 

baby 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.
