First of the season...

While out watering the garden one night last week, I caught sight of the first lightning bug I’ve seen this year. I’m looking forward to watching their gentle flashes of light glittering over the fields – they add such a charming touch to summer evenings.

“So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything,
but only God who gives the growth.”

—1 Cor. 3:7

    Oh, how I miss lightning bugs! What tiny little marvels of God’s handiwork.

    Lovely photograph, Emily Rose!

    To run in an overgrown field, beautifully invested with lightning bugs, on a late summer night…*sigh*

    I’ve never had the opportunity to see a lightening bug in person, but I’m sure they are magnificent!!

    Also, my husband and I purchased the coloring book you and your sister did. It is absolutely lovely! Our daughters really enjoy it!

    Enjoy your summer, God bless you!!

    Over the wheat field in the twilight, myriads (I mean hundreds) of these phosphorescent marvel flash on and off. It IS magical! Only one problem…I can’t capture them on camera. Have you tried?

    I saw my first lightning bug of the summer just last night. It was dark out, and I was actually inside. We have a narrow window (only a few inches wide) which never has blinds or curtains. Sitting next to this window, I suddenly saw a blink of light. I got up to look, and sure enough, it was a little bug on the out side, flashing its light for me. It did this a few more times, and was a joy to watch.

    Great photo, Emily Rose! I always enjoy reading whatever you’re talking about, whether it is lightning bugs, tomato plants, or your recent crafts. Keep up this wonderful inspiration you’re spreading around!
