While this big guy was cooling in a mud puddle, another was trying to chase, now I use that word loosely, a smaller tortoise. And because his legs were longer, he caught up, and bumped the smaller one's shell.
But this guy watched us people passing by, until an ant walked in front of his nose. Big guy "T" looked like he wanted that tasty snack. The large head followed it from right to left, opened his mouth and missed. The little ant was too quick for him and my camera.
He looked my way as if to say, "What, what are you starin' at?" Comfy in his spot, he waited for another unsuspecting snack to come along. Usually when there is one ant, there are plenty more. (No I didn't wait to see if he got one.)
"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 3:18
When I act like Big Guy "T," all comfy and resist growing and learning, I miss out on things around me, and don't even see the little things that pass me by. Lord, give me knowledge to know when to step out of my puddle and the desire to learn from You.
