A Baby camel asked his mother, "Why do we have such large hoofs on our feet?" She turned to him. "God made us that way for a very special reason," and she began her explanation " The big hoofs are to keep us from sinking into the sand."
"Oh! So why do we have long eyelashes?"
"It's to protect our eyes from the sand."
"Why the big humps?"
"That is to store fat and have enough energy to go long distances in the hot desert!"
"I see!" The baby camel stretched his neck and looked up at his mother. "The big hoofs are to keep from sinking into the sand, the long eyelashes are to keep the sand out of our eyes and the humps are to store energy to travel long distances. Then what are we doing in this cage in the middle of the zoo?"
Like the camel, I asked the same kind of questions Bars come in all sizes and shapes. Some are physical; others are emotional or even mental. But none can withstand the force of determination that breaks them down. The effort is worth it and the results, simply amazing!
I am batting my long eyelashes to keep out the sand of discouragement. Take a deep breath, break down the bars and emerge into the freshness of a new life.
