A Visitor

  Earlier this week while sewing I had an unexpected visitor..........

       A baby praying mantis! : )

"Pray without ceasing." 1 Thessalonians 5:17


  1. Oh Sarah,

    I had one last fall in our family room, I put him on a broom and took him outside. Two weeks later I was sitting outside and I happened to look above me on the eves of the house, and there he was caught in a spider web. I ran to get a broom and took him down and put him to the back of the house and put him in the flowers. Several months later I saw him again in the driveway, I then went for the broom again and put him in a tree. I have not seen him since. I called him greeny. Enjoy your new little friend, a creature created by God!

  2. They are such fascinating looking creatures, don't you agree?
    And yes - a lovely reminder to pray :-)
    blessings to you, Sarah.
    grace & peace..Trish

  3. Thank you Linda and Trish! : )Praying mantis are my favortie insect. I did carefully remove him from my lamp and place him on a tulip outside. My cat Nelson was eyeing him in an unsettling way. ; )
