What's He Praying About?

This little guy has been hanging out by our patio door for days. I don't like bugs but I thought this praying mantis was sort of cute! I'd like to think he's praying for revival but most likely he hopes for bugs😊

I couldn't get the picture larger so you all can see him better.


  1. It is trying to get heat from your home. Or perhaps if you have a porch light right near the door, it is capturing its meals there. The weather is changing. How many lines are on it's abdomen? Is it's abdomen large or small? If it is very large, you ought to bring it in. She will be laying an ooth of 200-300 nymphs. Praying Mantis's are such fascinating creatures. I own one and she laid an ooth. She is wild caught. They are easy keepers and fun to watch if you care to keep it. Just put your hand next to it and it should just walk into it. It does not bite. They are very beneficial and often times, gardeners will release them in their garden for pest control. Also, they help capture other insects that don't belong in your home and people have been known to release them in their home for pest control too. It will be dying here shortly as it will not be able to overwinter, although their ooths. If you need anymore information, just ask! :). Thanks for posting this picture!

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
