Tonight There is a Small Bird Trapped Inside My Garage

Nobody saw exactly how it happened, as is frequently the case with many of life’s misfortunes. But tonight a little bird is trapped inside my garage, perched high above on the rafters. It scurries about on the cross beams twelve feet above the floor. Its head twitches about and its eyes scan for an exit. Then it flies around erratically and seems to begin looking for a way out all over again.

The little bird keeps running into walls. It flies into the ceiling. It keeps looking up for an exit.

All the while, the garage door below is wide open. If only it would look down.

Our instincts usually guide us to look up for our next great move. If only the little bird in my garage knew just how close it was to the great wide open.

I’ve turned the lights off, and soon I’ll lower the garage door for the night, like a window of opportunity closing.

Have you bothered looking down for your next great move? Don’t wait for the lights to dim. It might be too late.

    Good point. The saying “think outside the box” includes under it as well. Going to God in prayer and taking the time to be quite and listen has often shown me that down is the way to go. I hope your little bird finds it’s way out of your garage and lives the life it was meant to live.
