EEK! Habits and Spiders!!


Look what came to visit today…

habit, photograph, spider,

A striped spider…does anyone know what kind of spider this is?

If a spider stops you in your tracks, what else but shriek so the whole neighborhood hears you, quickly grab your camera, compose yourself and then proceed to point and shoot!

Next, with your spider photograph, spend way too much time playing around with spider quotes on Wikiquotes and photo editing in Picasa.

Now, let me tell you the rest of the quote written by Lydia Sigourney on habits and we can meditate on it together.

“Habits, though in their commencement like the filmy line of the spider, trembling at every breeze, may in the end prove as links of tempered steel, binding a deathless being to eternal felicity or woe.”

Hmm, I guess you can say our good and bad habits start at a certain point and if we keep mindful of the bad ones; strive to break them while they delicately dangle within our reach, then; the good habits flourish taking us into a happier space.

Okay, got it. Going off to work on all my baddies…

What habit is delicately dangling within your reach waiting to be blown out with the next breeze?

      Thank you Angelswhisper for the blog award and now, I have to go find that lazy staff writer of mine, Chuckles, and get him out from one of the massive holes he has dug in effort to give the backyard the personalized landscape look…arrgh!!!! If it is not spiders, then it’s dirt and holes!!
      Thanks, again!!

    Oh goodness–I definitely like the quote, but not spiders, and I’ll have to ponder this on my bus ride today. I’ve got plenty of steel-webbed habits I could work on breaking–what’s the name of that tool used for cutting/breaking through big chains? Help me out here, Sunshine–and God bless your day abundantly. “Bolt cutters”??? love, sis Caddo


    • Sunshine says:

      Bolt cutters, (a heavy duty one) I need one, sis and no clue what type of spider that is?

      I love riding on buses. Let someone else do the driving while you sit back and meditate. Nice!

      I’ll be sure to keep the spiders over here so not to worry! Have a good one today…and blessings!

        Hi! The bus rides, to and from the Dr, were lovely–beautiful sunny day, and with the kids in school, it was peaceful and quiet. I do some of my best praying and worshiping on the bus–the song running through my head was “Little Brown Church in the Vale”, which I’ve only heard on the old “Andy Griffith Show”. Blessings back!

    Great post, I love your honest approach. Which bad habits are ready to be taken by the next breeze. If it only were as easy as that, but I would like to get of my inclination to procrastinate. I’m still working on it, but maybe tomorrow is a better day…


    • Sunshine says:

      Hello Otto, good to see you back from your adventure…I am trying to wrap my mind about you being a procrastinator…it is not coming in very clearly. *hehe*
      Maybe your bad habit got thrown out into the breeze? Yay!
      Thanks for breezing in for a chat! 😉

    Ahihihi … 😀 Don’t get too close, esp. if you don’t know what kind it is. Nice capture, Sunshine.

    I just recently read a blogger’s shared quote. It goes with line – If you think taking an adventure is dangerous, try routine. I think it nails it. Routine… er… habit, positive or negative, when done so repeatedly is deathly and will eventually break and collapse. You gotta mix it up, spice it up and …. live it up.
