One afternoon while sitting on my front porch, I noticed this Stick Bug. I knew that it was certainly lost from its natural habitat. I felt there were lessons that I and maybe others could learn from this Stick Bug.
AS I SEE YOU THERE
I wonder as I see you there,
How lonely you must be.
Far away from your home,
Your surroundings so strange indeed.
I watch you as you struggle to move,
Just to go a little more.
Can a lesson be found,
Maybe one about loneliness?
Giving thanks to God always,
That people never have to feel alone.
Hebrews 13:5-6 (HCSB)
5 Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you. 6 Therefore, we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper: I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty
Psalms 91:1 (NIV)
Simple expressions of kindness can leave lingering thoughts of happiness and pictures of beauty.
Flowers grown by a friend
Be still in the moment.
Listen, look at life.
10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! NKJV
As freezing temperatures approached, I cut the stem and brought the blooms inside.
Thankful for the day Let peace and love surround us
