Remember the caterpillar we watched last week?
Well he hatched a few hours earlier than I had expected
and we all missed watching him!
I found him just as he took off flying across the kitchen!

We canned our first ever pickles yesterday!!

May my lips overflow with praise,
for You teach me Your decrees.
May my tongue sing of Your word,
for all Your commands are righteous.

Saw this new-to-me moth last evening!
He really didn't care that I was right there snapping his 
crocheted hat. 

Each one should test his own actions.
Then he can take pride in himself,
without comparing himself to somebody else,
for each one should carry his own load.
Gal. 6:4-5

Another one of my very favorite flowers.

Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will equality, as it is written: "He that gathered much did not have too much, and he that gathered little did not have too little."
2 Cor. 8:13-15

For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, 
because we do not wish to be unclothed 
but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling,
 so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose 
and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
2 Cor. 5:4-5

a busy week to spend a couple hours wetting 
some worms at the river!

for there I find delight.
