When I was young, I had a terrifying fear of bugs.  I was known to do the bug dance if any kind of bug were in my presence.  This would happen no matter where I was! I remember going into the door of a fine restaurant only to do the bug dance because a moth got on me as I entered.  So embarrassing!  I was also very afraid of dragonflies because I was told as a child that you had to run from them because they would sew your mouth up.  For me that would be really dreadful because I have always been a talker.  I wonder who told me that; maybe they were trying to get some rest for the ears and a dragonfly flew by.  How funny those fears are now as I have grown in the Lord and grown to appreciate  even the bugs that He created.  I love looking at the intricacy of their design.  Only the Lord could have done such magnificent work.  Click on this dragonfly to bring it larger and look at all the little bones that make up his body.  I love how David wrote In the Psalms “The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me;  Thy mercy, O Lord endureth forever;  Forsake not the works of your own hands”.  Psalm 138:8  Bugs were a big concern for me and He took care of that fear.  I no longer do bug dances, and I can kill a spider by myself.  I know He didn’t perfect the bugs, It was me that He changed.  He will never forsake the works of His own hands.

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
