Indefinite number, yes Waited too late snap pic I confess Daily walk thru town On occasion look down Admiring smooth, flat concrete panels Suddenly aware emotional sidewalk ants in cracks Near scared beejeebers out of me thus procession Beware moving forward step over panels in progression Nostalgic thought to self Childhood game - remembrance wealth Never step on a crack Or you'd break your mother's back Frenzy ant pic chose to postpone Lesson ahead far from unknown Each day two weeks incorporated portion same street Within daily zigzag walking pattern no ants meet You're too late it appears - ant groups on vacation Forgot to leave forwarding address of new location Still searching snapped picture Sunday of measly ants Brought back memories adages heard over years Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today Time waits for no one - what more can I say Neither did gaggle of frenzied ants who went astray.

An awesome selection of reads!
In a short span of time I’ve clicked on a myriad of blog posts written by both men and women of all ages. The pics above the title are a definite catch-all.
A few days ago a beautiful floral picture came to sight. The title incorporated the word ‘beauty’. I couldn’t resist to click on it and what a find besides the beautiful flower that led me into temptation to read yet one more blog.
As a near novice to the blogging world with lots to learn, I had no idea when I clicked on the box ‘reblog’ the young Australian gal’s blog post would be transferred to my page over at Facebook. Surprise!
Although I failed to leave a comment for her after completion of read, rather only a like, she did send me a ‘thank you’. Another surprise – quite nice.
I wonder what led me to that page and selection. For certain I had no idea the impact heretofore the contents her written words and scripture passages would bestow upon my clouded thinking pattern.
Reflection time brought to light how many, many years ago a similar post with different wording could have been written by me. Tragedy within my personal life changed me and often days when feeling the gray cloud over head, it’s an extremely difficult chore to think positivity lies ahead.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever. —- John Keats
Today I wanted to talk to you about beauty. Specifically what beauty means to me and what I believe God’s definition of beauty is.
Psalm 139:13&14 says… ‘For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.’
My inspiration behind this post was Africa. When I was in Africa I realised that a lot of the women I hanged around seemed a lot more confident than women here. Even though comparison is something that people are guilty of everywhere including Africa, I noticed it was a lot less common. That’s why the only post I published whilst I was in Africa for a month was ’12 Quotes for Quitting Comparison’.
I had not felt so accepted and beautiful just the way I am for…

Vibrations transmitted through the air Find their way to the human's ear. Perched high atop branches of neighborhood trees Backyard birds, songbirds, often awaken thee. A squawk, a peep, a series of notes Echo ever so softly from several species throats. To we humans a definite pattern can be heard Soothing calls, albeit different messages to Nature's Delightful Birds.
