Camel Advice


The Kneeling Camel by Anna Temple Whitney

The camel at the close of day

Kneels down upon the sandy plain

To have his burden lifted off

And rest again.

My soul, thou too shouldst to thy knees

When daylight drawers to a close,

And let thy Master lift thy load,

And grant repose.

Else how canst thou tomorrow meet,

With all tomorrow’s work to do,

If thou thy burden all the night

Dost carry through?

The camel kneels at break of day

To have his guide replace his load,

Then rises up anew to take

The desert road.

So thou shouldst kneel at morning dawn

That God may give thy daily care,

Assured that no load too great

Will make thee bear.

The camel seldom drinks, despite the burdens that it carries slowly over the sand dunes. The landscape appears barren and endless with mirages that trick the eye. The camel endures, slowly, but proudly.

ADVICE: It may be a time for you to use your resources wisely to ensure that there is enough for tomorrow, and enough for everyone. Be patient and humble. Plan where you want to go, and how you want to travel, then proceed slowly, steadily, and deliberately to your destination.

“When the camel kneels to be laden, it always grumbles, growls, and shows resentment, but of this the driver takes no notice. He goes on loading up until the moment when the beast suddenly becomes silent; then he knows that the burden is heavy enough, and nothing more is added.” – Mildred Cable
