Some Food For Thought
The Buzzard:
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.


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.

Sorrow looks back,
 Worry looks around, But faith looks up!
