Have you ever observed the behaviour of birds in the face of adversity ?
For days and days they make their nest, sometimes gathering materials brought from far away.
And when they have completed the nest and are ready to lay eggs, the weather or the work of humans, or some animal, destroys it, and it falls to the ground, all that they have done with so much effort.
Do they stop?
Bewildered, and leave their work ?
No Way !!
They start over building the nest again and again until they have eggs in the nest again.
Sometimes, and very often before the chicks are hatched, an animal, a child, or a storm destryos the nest once again, but this time with its valuable contents.
It hurts to go back and begin again…..
Even so, the birds do not stop, they continue to sing and build , and keep singing and building.
Do you sometimes get the feeling that your life, your work, your family is not what you had dreamed. Do you sometimes want to say ‘ENOUGH’, the effort is not worthwhile. It is all too much for me!
Are you tired of it all? Do you feel that the daily struggle is a waste of time, your trust has been betrayed, your goals not reached just as you were about to get them ?
Life strikes you down sometimes, but keep moving, say a prayer, put your faith in hope, not darkness? Do not worry Gather yourself together and rebuild your life, so that it runs well again.
No matter what happens……Never give up as long as you are alive
