Going To The Ants.

I have about 3 posts rumbling around in my head, with time to write only one! This morning I noticed something that I thought was amazing, but I first have to explain that seeing little crawling things around the house is normal. Each night we cook, we throw water on the kitchen floor, scrub it up, and push it down the drain. It's just life to see a gecko running across the wall or to see what I think is a piece of dirt actually moving:o). But one thing I noticed recently are the itty, bitty ants.

They are so diligent, and I am not kidding you. Plus, they are smart. On Sunday I noticed the ants crawling up and down the bathroom wall. Now before any of you flip out, they really are tiny, tiny things so they are more of a bother than a problem. These ants were all scurrying up to the ceiling and then down to the floor. I decided to hose down the whole wall and I didn't give it another thought until this morning.

The ants were back again, but this time, instead of running up and down the wall, they were going up and down the paneling which is a dark brown (the wall is white)! The first thought that popped into my mind was that verse that says, " Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:" (Proverbs 6:6). It is so true! I didn't quite realize the Lord would have me learn a lesson from little bitty ants, but the Lord has used stranger teachers (I'm thinking of Balaam and his donkey right now:D).

Go to the ant... there are plenty of lessons to learn:o)

We've had the little ants many times. They are soooo persistent! Oh to be like them and never give up or get faint hearted no matter what the trap/bait/chalkline/cinnamon/ant spray! :)

I think they were hoping your eyes weren't too good by leaving the white wall for a darker one! Its crazy to think of something so small as being so smart!
