Moths are so beautiful yet delicate. They really should not be handled as I did this one. If you must for whatever reason handle a moth put in your hand a cotton ball or something similar soaked in a solution of sugar-water 1-4 ratio and let the moth come to it. Just like a butterfly its wings should never be touched.
Oh and they pee just like any other creature, not something I ever really thought about.
I went outside later and found that it had a wound that looked as if a bird had tried to peck at it so I gently picked it up and laid it in the this potted plant where it would be safe to die in peace instead of being eaten alive. After awhile another moth just like it came in and rested beside it. It stayed there with it for most of the day as if it were trying to comfort a dying loved one. I don’t know enough about moths to know if that is indeed the case or not. I would sure like to think so. The injured moth appeared to stroke the other moth as if to say “thank you”. I noticed today that the non-injured one was gone. At the time I looked anyway. Maybe it is off getting food. In the photo the moth on the right is the non-injured one.
Such amazing beauty our Lord God created for us to enjoy. Praise Him all creatures great and small.

A dear friend of mine gave me this beautiful Tulip because of my mom’s death. That was so sweet of her especially since she is having such a difficult time in life right now. It was good to be able to talk with her about she still misses her mother after ten years and sometimes even still cries about it. I hope that I can be more of a help to her in coming months and years. It is one of my friendships from way back that I would love to renew. She is a sweet, gentle woman who is not harsh or judgemental. She did a great job homeschooling her two children and now has nine grandchildren, the lucky woman! I had the chance to meet most of them a few weeks ago and they were all a true delight to know. It was good to have a house full of kids again, all laughing and playing. I look forward to having many more fun times with them all. Thank you Dell.

Just playing around with this photo and it looks to me like it pops in a 3-D way. I keep wanting to touch it. It almost seems as if it was knitted at one moment or cut from paper the next.

Run little bug, run.
You are out in the sun now.
Hide near a flower.

My dishes have more important things to hold than food.
She danced and laughed all around the garden, all night long under the brilliant blue moonlight.
