Sunday Spiritual



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, people 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!
Live simply,
love generously,
care deeply,
speak kindly, and
trust in our Creator ,
who loves us.

Friday Fun - Find a Smile Here! #CCfrnds

It's Friday...
(Well almost....)
Find a smile

Three Sisters
Really, this could be three old brothers too!!
This is so funny and cute that had to share it.

Three sisters age 92, 94 and 96 live in a house together.

One night the 96 year old ...draws a bath, puts her foot in and pauses. She yells down the stairs, "Was I getting in or out of the bath?"

The 94 year old yells back, "I don't know, I'll come up and see." She starts up the stairs and pauses, then she yells, "Was I going up the stairs or coming down?"

The 92 year old was sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful." She knocks on wood for good measure. She then yells,
"I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see
who's at the door."

Hope you smiled!!!

So glad to have a working internet connection.

Here was the scene on the TV Wednesday night 
with tornadoes in Oklahoma

Below is what I see day after day when there is a cloud in the sky or a leaf blowing or possibly even a breeze....

Have a wonderful weekend.
I really need a weekend off.

Tired. So tired.
