This guy is growing, emphasis on growing, into an awesome guard frog. He is HUGE, looks like a mutant when next to his froggy pals. That is a watering bucket outside my door that he was proudly perched on when we came home last night.

We Call Her Tender, As In Tender Mercy

Tender mercies come in all shapes and sizes. Several months ago my Mother was going through a particularly difficult time and while she was in her yard as therapy Heavenly Father sent the sweetest tender mercy to her. They are now dear friends, no pun intended.

She follows Mother along the chain link fence, comes to Mother’s voice and her name, “Tender” or “Baby”. She will stand and watch you as you watch her. She has a gentle wisdom in her eyes. She is so beautiful. My camera battery went dead so I did not get too many good shots, but there are a couple. I hope to get more soon.

I mentioned to Mother, “Tender is ruining my love of deer sausage and deer meat.”

Just look at her. (I am shooting through the fence, so that’s the blur. The last, I thought was just a neat picture.)

Does Anyone Know What This Is

I posted these large in hopes that someone could help me identify what in the world it is. This critter was on a vine and you could see its little legs booking it fast. I do not know if it was a spider taking down its web or what? Any ideas?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic–Butterfly Surgery

As a child I loved chasing butterflies from flower to flower, I suppose chasing was putting it lightly. Stalking was more like it. Those poor traumatized butterflies.

I remember one day being very very young and playing with one of our butterflies until nearly all the dust was off his wings. I was so very sad the he could not fly. He tried but just walked around. I just knew we had killed him, as I looked at his wing dust on our little fingers.

We thought and thought what we should do. I had a brilliant idea. Our dirt was dusty like the dust on his wings, so I dusted his wings really good, and said a little prayer, and you know what? He flew, it took him a couple of times, but he flew away.

I have always wondered if it was the dirt dust or Heavenly Father answering the prayers of a child who had tender growing faith.

My photographs are of butterflies. I noticed the wings of the orange butterflies are kind of worn. I wonder if they too have been stalked, captured, and then became a child’s miracle too.

Week Photo Challenge: He Loves Unconditionally

Roscoe is the most compassionate dog I know. He picks up on cues. I was feeling down. He came over and laid his head on my tummy as if to say, “Mom, I am here.”

When I or my husband cough, he runs and jumps on the other until we let him know that his other parent is okay. He can be awakened from a deep sleep or in another room by a cough a do this. Sweet sweet boy.

I love my “Guard Frogs”. They let me know when the rain is coming. They are just adorable to me. I pet them and talk to them everytime I come home or when I am on my porch. I think this picture is so cute of them coming out to greet me.
