I am such a clumsy bumbler. And the other day, this bumbler stumbled onto a bumble. I'm really so clumsy that I'm like Mr. Magoo, remember that old cartoon? I always have bruises from walking into door frames, door knobs, and furniture. How clumsy am I, you ask? Many years ago, I ended up in the E.R. from an accident trying to put on my underpants. It was a slow day in trauma and they laughed themselves silly. So I was pretty pleased with myself for taking these pictures the other day with no mishaps. When the bees come flying around little Ella, she goes running to my husband shouting "Phil, save me from the Bumbles!!" But on closer look, this really appears to be a Carpenter Bee, which look like bumblebees. They are very gentle and won't sting. To read more about them, you can click HERE to see my earlier post. A carpenter bee is what I would bee if I were an insect, because they are very clumsy fliers, and are always bumping into walls. But though I may trip, stumble, and fall, I take comfort in what king David said so long ago.
"If the Lord delights in a man's way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand." Psalm 37:23,24
