What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Don't freak out...

Ever see a cicada molting??

Maybe these photo are gross to some, but considering cicadas have a 17 year life-cycle and the "birth" lasts but a moment, I considered the opportunity to witness it to be a real, once-in-a-lifetime treat. The children, too, were thrilled.

How can you not be mystified at such a thing?

Just as I was with our Monarch, I am amazed at the smallness of the wings and how they stretch right before your eyes (but without your notice).

For those interested: you can see the whole molting process here. It is fascinating.
