How many ants live in your neighborhood?

Andy told me this morning on the way to school that his dad is starting to build a new underground condo project for senior ants on a big vacant field that’s three blocks from my house.  Imagine a retirement community for old ants!  His dad has to get up extra early to be at work by 7am.  Three blocks’ distance is a long way for ants to walk.

Most people have no idea how many ants live in my neighborhood.  They live in ant villages called colonies.  Andy tells me they have underground highways and that most ants never come out in the daytime.   When God created the earth, He made plenty of room for lots of ants. He sees value in them, even if people don’t.  God is quite amazing. He cares for every person and for every little creature—even ones smaller than ants.
