God's amazing little creatures

One of God's amazing little creatures is the Monarch butterfly. They start off as tiny little eggs which hatch into tiny little caterpillars that are so small they could easily be missed if you don't know what you're looking for. All they do everyday is eat and poop, rest, then eat and poop some more. Several times a week, I go around town find the only plant they will eat: milkweed. Everyday I see my cat, I'm amazed by this little creature. He (not sure if it's a male but works for now) is so small and fragile yet, he knows exactly what he needs to do to survive.  There has been a couple of times where I've worried about him cause he hasn't eaten and has remained motionless for a long time. But in the end, the cat knows what he's doing cause God has ingrained in it a will to survive. I guess this is what it's like to be a mom. Constant worry of if your baby is eating enough, is he full, does he need more, ... I wonder if God worries about us? Probably not, since he is all knowing and knows what He's doing unlike us.

We are like these little cats sometimes. We eat and grow, and eat and grow. Not always knowing that God is there protecting us everyday and providing for our needs.

Monarch Butterflies

As a teacher, we go to many different types of workshops. It usually has something to do with literacy, classroom management, differentiation, blah, blah, blah....  While those workshops are all great for professional development, it's sometimes nice to have a change.  Last week, I went to a workshop for teachers that focused on Monarch Butterflies. Monarch Butterflies and teaching? Well, there were quit a few links to the curriculum but what I got out of it was a new interest.  So I found 2 caterpillar eggs and now have 2 tiny "cats" that eat like crazy! I'll be releasing them when they're adult butterflies to help with the Monarch population.  Go here for more info:

My first feature in a treasury!  It's called "Say Yes".  How fitting, as I start planning for my wedding.  Did you know that wedding dress shopping can be exhausting? Especially if you can't find that one perfect dress.  So I spent a whole week going to different dress shops and tried on about 20 different dresses until I found the perfect one. (I know, a whole week to find a dress is actually not too bad) Can't say to many details but it's beautiful and the perfect one.  Now I just need to figure out the necklace to match. 

**Anyways, here's the link to the treasury:
