Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

"Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider it's ways and be wise!" Proverbs 6:6
Today was a sluggish day for me.. I'm not sure if I'm fighting allergies, which I've never had in my life or a cold. I have NO energy. And the friend who was suppose to go with me to Weight Watchers wasn't feel well either. So technically I will sign up next Monday but will start my journey on my own tomorrow!
Did you know that an Ant can pick up anything 50 times it's weight! As a child I remember laying on the lawn and watching ants as they trotted with "white" things on their backs in that perfect line that they form to bring their item of destination to only a place they knew of.
As I would sit and watch, what seemed to be for hours, I finally got a mean urge to rub the ants holes closed... I wanted to stop their path of work and see what would happen. After awhile those little ants would emerge from their hole again.. nothing seemed to stop them.
There are many days I feel like satan wants to cover up my light at the end of my tunnel and some days I think he succeeds.. UGH... but I always have to remember that little ant song.. the one that I use to sing to my kids so many years ago when Barney of all Creatures was popular.. ha ha ha...

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching one by one,The little one stops to suck his thumb
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
5 stalks celery
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup raisins
Cut the celery stalks in half. Spread with peanut butter. Sprinkle with raisins.
