Mr. Plant Lady and I have had a visitor take up residence at our house. She is a garden spider (what better kind for plant people?) Some call it a "writing spider" because of the silken "writings" that it forms on its web.
She has spun her web (remember Charlotte's Web?)on the shrubbery just off the front porch. We have been talking about her for over a week now and have watched her progress as she waits patiently for her prey. We noticed a few days ago, that she had "captured" an unlucky prisoner and had spun a silken shroud around it, just like the Egyptians of old, when they embalmed their dead (mummy) and entombed them in the Pyramids.
As I went to work this morning, I noticed that the "mummy" was gone. She had totally disposed of the body! I wonder what she did with it! It is amazing to me how God provides for all His creation! How much more will He provide for His children, giving them their daily bread as well as other blessings too numerous to count?
Keep an eye out for those garden (or "writing") spiders at your house. They are most beautiful and I think that they could possibly be writing a "thank you" note to their Creator! What do you think?
Thank you God for Your blessings, provision, and the spiders!
