  1. 1. A lesson in PERSEVERANCEMusique : Songbird – Barbra StreisandClick to advance
  2. 2. Have you ever observed the behaviour of birdsin the face of adversity?
  3. 3. For days and days they make their nests, sometimesgathering materials brought from far away
  4. 4. And when they have completed the nest and are ready tolay eggs, the weather, or the work of humans, or someanimal, destroys it, and it falls to the ground, all that theyhave done with so much effort
  5. 5. Do they stop ?Bewildered, andleave thework ?
  6. 6. No way. They start over building the nest again and againuntil they have eggs in the nest again.
  7. 7. Sometimes,and very often before the chicks are are hatched, ananimal, a child, or a storm destroys the nest once again, but thistime with its valuable contents.
  8. 8. It hurts to go back to begin again… Even so, the birds do notever stop, they continue to sing and build, and keep singing andbuilding…..
  9. 9. Do you sometimes get the feeling that your life, your work,your family is not what you had dreamed. Do yousometimes want to say “enough”, the effort is notworthwhile. It is all too much for me!
  10. 10. Are you tired of it all? Do you feel that the daily struggle is awaste of time, your trust has been betrayed, your goals notreached just as you were about to get them?
  11. 11. Life strikes you down sometimes, but do you go on, say aprayer, put your faith in hope, not darkness? Do not worryif you get injured in the battle, that is to be expected. Gatheryourself together and rebuild your life,so that it runs well again.
  12. 12. No matter what happens… Do not shrink back, but moveforward. Life is a constant challenge, but it is worthwhileto mostly accept it. And never stop singing.
  13. 13. Do not keep this to yourself….Do not keep this to yourself….Send this to your group of friends…Send this to your group of friends…
