Thank you Starlette for this evenings Hall of Hero’s installment! *Hugs*
Well, I had quite the adventure tonight.
I went for a lovely ride on the Motorcycle, went out for sushi buffet, and then decided to open the saddlebag and get out a windbreaker for the ride home.
The saddlebag contained a complete nest of FIRE ANTS! YEEEOOOWWW!
I unzipped the bag, detached it from the bike and emptied it onto the street. The ants (which were nearly 3/4” long!) were frantically gathering the egg cases while I stomped them mercilessly with my Motorcycle boots. Then I sped over to Walgreens and bought an ANT B*MB, and sprayed the interior of the saddlebags with the stuff.
I must have killed hundreds of them.
Well, my blood lust has been satisfied for at least a whole week.
My daughter is allergic to peanuts. Her sensitivity is so acute that eating even the tiniest fragment of a peanut threatens her life. As a result, we scrutinize food package labels. We carry a pre-filled syringe of medicine (to treat allergic reactions) wherever we go. And, when we eat out, we call ahead and quiz the wait staff about the restaurants menu items.
Despite these precautions, I still feel concernedboth for her current safety and for her future safety. This situation is not something I would naturally be thankful about. Yet, Gods Word challenges: In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thess. 5:18). Theres no getting around it. God wants us to pray with thanksgiving when the future is uncertain, when heartbreak hits, and when shortfalls come.
Its hard to be grateful in difficulties, but its not impossible. Daniel prayed and gave thanks (Dan. 6:10), knowing that his life was in danger. Jonah called out with the voice of thanksgiving (Jonah 2:9) while inside a fish! These examples, coupled with Gods promise that He will work all things together for our good and His glory (Rom. 8:28), can inspire us to be thankful in all things.
Read: 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22
What an ordeal! *Hugs*
Good evening Connie...((HUGS))
Just got back from PHX and seeing Nate.
Good evening Mayor & thank you for our daily bread! *Hugs*
And didn't come to see me & bring Nate! I do declare! :)

yep...it really gave me the heebie jeebies.
I HATE FIRE ANTS!!!!!!
And these ones invaded the sanctity of my MOTORCYCLE!
MY MADE IN THE USA HARLEY!!!!!
HOW DARE THEY!!!!!!!!!!
ONLY GOT TO BE THERE ON SAT AS THE LITTLE GUY HAS A VIRAL BUG AND ISN’T FEELING WELL.
....till they all come home....
Eeeeeeee.....ick....awful nightmarish experience! :P
Thanks, Galz, for a great story of another wonderful American hero.
Kathy...prayers continue for your family! (((hugs)))
Did they do this in a relatively short time or has it been a while since you rode the steel stallion?
Awww....I hope the lil guy is feeling greatly improved very soon!
I’m on my way back to the hospital now....report will come later.
Please just pray for my Dad’s peace of mind. He has a subdural hematoma. This week has been really, really, hard on both him and my Mom and me.
Had to call 911 yesterday evening....
Oh, Kathy...you definitely have my prayers for all of you. Take all the time you need. If I can help around here, just ask!
I pray your dad will be ok soon and will recover quickly.
Logan’s Prayer Warriors, one thing led to another...and I tripped across this post from Kathy. It appears her Dad (and ALL of the family!) could certainly use our prayers now.
Prayers on the way.
((HUGS))Good morning, Ladies. Thanks for this morning's thread, Star. How's it going?
Dear Heavenly Father, We ask You to heal Kathy’s Father. Give him strength and wellness. Please keep Kathy and her Mother strong and may they feel Your love and compassion. In This I Pray. Amen.
Kathy we will be praying for your Dad,(((((Hugs))))
I ride regularly, but it has been a few weeks since I last opened the saddlebags. If you recall, these are NEW saddlebags, installed just a few months ago when I got new tires.
The ants were bad enough, but it was them scurrying around with the egg cases that REALLY Creeped me out!
Prayers up, Kathy.
I will be flying to Boston later this week to be with my Mom. I will not have a computer, so I will be AWOL for a while.
Good morning, Canteen.
Good morning to our
Military, our Allies, and their families.
