praying mantis

knitted hat

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment,
such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.
Instead, it should be that of your inner self,
the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which is of great worth in God's sight.

1 Peter 3:3-4

Live as free men,

I stepped out for a little walk yesterday evening.
I walked past this tree and heard a funny noise.
I looked up just in time to see this wasp carrying
this locust up the tree!
Amazing! I had never seen anything like that before!

You do no have, because you do not ask God.
When you ask, you do not receive,
because you ask with the wrong motives,
that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

Speak and act as those who are going to be judged
by the law that gives freedom,
