A friend sent this picture to me. I love it! I love it so much I made it the wallpaper on my computer...imagine, having a bug as wallpaper. In case some of you can't recognize it, it's a praying mantis standing in the middle of the street with his hands (hands?!)raised in the air and what appears to be a huge smile on his face. My first thought was he was praising Papa. I remember Yeshua (Jesus) saying that even if the people stopping singing Hosanah as He rode into Jerusalem that even the stones would break forth in praise...but I don't remember anywhere in the Bible it saying the bugs would break forth in praise. Hmmm. Perhaps I just missed that one. I'll have to do some looking and see if I can find it.
We had another rainy day today...and cool too! So washday got postponed. Somehow it seemed a waste of time to do the laundry and hang it out on the line to dry in the rain. Ya know what I mean?! So Little Critter and I cleaned bathrooms and worked on gathering things for the yard sale at church. Yea? Anyway, it was a nice day. I got to lead the Cub Scout troop tonight, so we became archeologists for a bit, put together a tangram type puzzle of a dinosaur and then made a T-Rex lunch bag puppet. I get to lead the den for the next month since the regular Den Mother is busy with baseball. So next week we'll finish our puppets, take pictures and mount them and work on finding a dinosaur in the stars. (trying to help the boys earn their arrow points before they move up into Webolos at the end of the summer.) I think we'll have fun while still learning more about leadership, cooperation and our world around us. I was kinda proud we finished two arrow points tonight. Only 18 more to go before August. Of course at the end of our session, the boys put their hands in their puppets and tried to convince me there was a scout badge for eating each other's dinosaur. Good try, you little turkeys! No cigar. I think this will be fun. I'll let you know later in the summer.
Well, I mostly wanted to share my little praising bug with ya'll.. I just find it hysterically funny. So I'm going to join my little buggy friend and praise Papa for the wonderful rain, the cool weather, the fun with the boys tonight and for my wonderful family and friends. What a blessed life I have! May you each be as blessed. Shalom, Spitfire
PS I looked to see if the trees were praising Him today, but they looked kinda sad. Must have missed our music and dancing outside. hehehehe
