The Buzzard, The Bat, And The Bumblebee

  1. 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 remarkably 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, 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
    It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys


    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.

    Sorrow looks back,

    Worry looks around,

    But faith looks up.

    Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they are there
