Chapter 6, Page 17, Book 15

The Bee Attitudes

Bee busy
Doing what you love to do.

Bee true
To the dreams God's given you.

Bee sure
To taste the sweetness of each day

Bee silly
Giggle lots...take off and play.

Bee Bold
Enough to trust your wings and fly.

The power of prayer will get you by.

Bee Happy
Keep your outlook bright and sunny.

Bee Yourself...Bee-cause
You really are a honey!

June 17- love is a blessing

When I think of blessed I think of good circumstances, a happy heart and being free from worry. But that is not always reality.  The Beatitudes say that it means being poor in spirit, meek, merciful, persecuted, insulted or hungry, probably not the definition of blessed that I would have written up myself. 

The Beatitudes are an explanation of what it is to be well off spiritually: to know God’s grace and protection and to feel his blessing, even despite what you are experiencing in life.  Beatitudes are profound for many reasons, not the least of which is how applicable their lessons are to different life situations.

 The Bee Attitudes above are just one of many examples.  Bees are very loyal and extremely hard working creatures. They are so conscientious that they get very upset when they are disturbed in their work.  All good things when we consider how blessed we are just to be.

We were created to work together, to love and watch out for each other.  That is a very valuable lesson from the bees.

Bee-Happy !

That is so true that we are created to work together, Ma! I do like those Bee attitudes :) It would be nice to incorporate some of them into our daily lives (or maybe all of them :)
