Pictorial Tuesday ~ The Interesting of Nature

So, I was picking dead flowers out of my flower boxes, and then I saw this...?? I called hubby out and said "What is this thing?" He told me it was a grasshopper. It looked all upside down to me and I finally figured out that it was hanging onto a green leaf of my flower plant. He held on to it all that day, and the next, and next. I don't know how long he had been there originally. He is now gone from my plant. Nature sure does have some weird looking insects or whatever is the correct name for this thing. Anyway, not sure what he was doing or what use he serves, but I was glad I hadn't wrapped my hand around that part of the plant to pull it out. haha

Pictorial Tuesday 10 10 17

When I looked out and the sun was casting such a pretty glow, I had to grab the camera. Wish I could have captured it better because the way the sun was shining over the field was very pretty.

Sunday Scripture Blessings 10 8 17

Sharing some of my Bible Journaling pages. Some I do in my Bible, others I do in a journal. If you like to make your own journals, I've purchased books really reasonable at Goodwill when they're having a sale: you can take the pages out and put your own blank pages in and then decorate the cover however you like. There are many examples on YouTube of how to sew in the pages or by other methods.  Below is one that I made, but I only finished the edge and didn't totally decorate the book cover.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ,
(by grace ye are saved). Ephesians 2:4-5 KJV

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19 KJV

Sunday Scripture Blessings 10 1 17

Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ that we might be justified by faith.
But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:19-29 KJV

My Mailbox, a $10 dollar bill, and a prayer:

A few Springtime's ago around Easter, I attended Church with my son who was visiting from California. It was sentimental because he had come to spend time with us and he had brought our youngest grand-daughter who we'd rarely seen since she was born. She was now two at the time. Anyway, after that Church service that day, the cemetery where my mom is buried is on the way home. (My son had stayed after Church to visit some of his friends there, and I went on my way.)

I stopped at the cemetery to visit her grave since I rarely go there. Anyway, while there, I had the biggest urge to pray to Jesus and ask him to show me that my mom was with him (I assumed she was) and okay. In tears, I prayed fervently and said, Jesus, I know you have the power to show me that she is okay. I continued to visit and have my tearful time of missing my mom.

Then, I headed home to finish preparations for our Easter dinner. With dinner and days that past, I had forgotten my prayer.

It was a few days later that when I went to the mailbox, and looked down right in front of it, lay a $10 bill. Now, there is nothing across our road and behind our mailbox but an empty farm fields. On one side of our place is an abandoned building on that lot, and one neighbor to the other side. We are pretty much surrounded by farm fields. I then told my husband and son about my prayer and I considered it an answer/a sign. My husband laughed and said, your mom didn't throw down a $10 bill. He's very much a doubter. :)

My son suggested that I ask the only ones that would be going down our road and by our mailbox. The one that hangs a weekly paper on the mailbox hook, and our mail person. I did, and neither said they had lost any money that week.

Now, I know my mom didn't throw down a $10 to me to show she's okay, but I take it as a sign. However it got there, in our 35 years of living here, I've never found money outside our house or by the mailbox. So I'm claiming it as an answer to my prayer. I knew my mom was okay, but was nice to think Jesus heard my plea/prayer that day and needed some comforting. Miracles do happen, even small ones.

I, for some reason, find it hard to use this $10. It has been on my refrigerator for the past 3 years. Every time my son visits now, he comments that I still have that $10. May find a way to pass it forward to someone who needs a blessing.

The mailbox where the $10 lay folded on the ground right in front.
