What Next? Bees Driving Cars?


One thing about me that you might not know. I’m afraid of bees. Also wasps and hornets. Now they don’t bother me too much if they’re on the ground in the clover, but if you’re anywhere within earshot when they’re buzzing in the air, you’ll likely hear me scream. We just had a yellow jacket nest under the hood of our car. Bees in cars!! What next? Phil took the car to our mechanic and he sprayed brake cleaner on them! He said this works better than bug spray because it kills them instantly and evaporates right away. But as I write this, I am feeling a bit guilty for our mass destruction, because bees can teach us a lot about life, in addition to how to scream and run. They are instinctively drawn by nature to make honey all the time. That is their purpose here. Like the bees, we were put here with a purpose. And that is at all times to do the work of God while we’re here on earth. This need to do his will gets stronger as we study his word and give thanks in all things. As you see the beautiful flowers the bees pollinate, and taste their sweet and perfect food, think of your reason for being here, of God’s great love for you,and how amazingly beautiful are all his creatures who shine like the sun when they find their true purpose. By the way, isn’t this picture georgous? It was taken by a friend of ours

Thank you Ginny! Those are powerful words for something I simply wanted to capture. I love nature photos in general. That's really inspiring, thank you again. :)

That is a great lesson. I do hate to see useful animals killed unless necessary. That's why I didn't kill the snake in my house...LOL

I would definitely have done what you did Ginny. I sat on a bee once as a child and still remember how it hurt. you continue to amaze me on how you take mundane(shame on me nothing God created is mundane of course)little objects and relate them to something as profound as working tirelessly for God as the bee does for us to produce honey. What a wonderful world we live in. Thank you for your continuing inspiration.

I tried driving 50 mph hoping they would fall off but they didn't; we're lucky nobody got stung
