Bumblebee’s are so cute.
When they’re not flying next to my head that is. Then I turn into an arm waving maniac, but today I found this especially sweet one outside!
Did you know that a French entomologist (fancy name for a bug guy) named Antoine Magnan wrote this in his 1934 book Le Vol des Insectes*?:
“First prompted by what is done in aviation, I applied the laws of air resistance to insects, and I arrived, with Mr. Sainte-Laguë, at this conclusion that their flight is impossible.”
That quote is about the chubby bumblebee.
I remember hearing that they shouldn’t be able to fly, but to find that their flight is “impossible” reminds me how great God is.
It doesn’t matter what I think will work, if God wants it to it can work. We just haven’t figured out how He did it yet.
So if you’re feeling down remember you can “do all things through Christ who strengthens” you. (Philippians 4:13) It might feel impossible, but just like the bumblebee if He wants you to be able to do it — you CAN fly.
“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.” Mary Kay Ash
