I was in a quandary the other day.

The boys were killing ants.

I did not know if I should stop them. Kids will be kids. And what’s the loss of a few ants?

But I was torn, because I believe that ants are one of God’s creatures. Do I present this lesson to the boys? Remember the earlier post about Jacob and God’s glorious critters.

Then I had an epiphany. (Don’t you love that word/idea?!)

Maybe God created ants for the sole purpose of giving mothers 5 minutes of peace!
