Who can eat 8 times your body mass and not gain weight?

Bee Hummingbird

Hold a penny. Can you imagine a bird as light as the penny? Marvel at a colorful buzzing bumblebee. Can you picture a bird the same size as that bee? God created the Cuban Bee Hummingbird, the smallest bird in the world, at 2 1/4 inches long. It has the second fastest heart rate of all animals. Because of its high metabolism, it has to spend each day eating and drinking at a rate 8 times its body mass to survive.

I’m hoping when I reach my final heavenly destination, I will be able to eat 8 times my body mass from the Mexican food buffet without gaining a single pound.  What buffet line will you be in?

Psalm 86:10
For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.

  1. Gail, I enjoy your posts and seeing these wonders of God’s creation. Thank you for sharing the splendor of His mighty, creative hand. I love, love, love to cook. It would be a delight just to be able to cook without the worry of calorie, salt, sugar, fat intake, wouldn’t it? But I have just the speck of an idea we won’t be giving much thought to that when we see Jesus!

    1. So are you saying my Mexican food cravings will dissipate in Heaven?? ;o)

  2. […] we were processed. Got the obligatory “welcome aboard” picture taken and then proceeded to eat, of course! Entertainment and shows were cranking up and the buffet line was busy.  No passengers […]

  3. Wow! I don’t know this fact; it has good metabolic rate so it is easily eat huge amount of food and digest it!
