|Behold the mighty ant!
TODAY THE WORDS are IF I COULD BE AN ANT. In an attempt to continue on my path of healthy living and eating; I was researching some recipes and stumbled over some information on ants. It stirred up the “Arline” mind and it is intriguing to consider all of the obstacles, walls, risks, and natural disasters which impact the ants’ lives; we are so blessed but somewhat ungrateful in many instances. I thought I would list out some of the ant’s abilities and let’s compare. I will give you my deeper thoughts at the end of this amazing Ant facts as found on antArk :
Amazing Ant Facts
Now for deeper thought…..I see so many interesting facts here and find some of them totally fascinating but I will leave all of you to form your opinion about whether or not you would want to be an ant. It seems it would be amazing to hold 100X your own weight upside down, right. It seems they are unstoppable but they are vulnerable as we humans are. What is important, whether you are an ant or human; we can try our best no matter what the odds, risks, and obstacles confront us in life. I also read where some ants sleep frequently and are often quite lazy. Those might be the ones who end up eaten by others and isn’t that similar in humans? Not literally, but they are eaten by life and diminished by their laziness. I think I am glad I am human but I admire the little ants’ spirits. Live life; love life; and live life to the fullest by remembering my quote: “One individual step might seem insignificant; but if it is headed in the right direction it can be monumental.”
DAILY FEATURED BIBLE VERSE:
Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.
