Ladybug Lessons

Good Morning! I am so glad you are here today. I hope you are having a great summer. It's been a toasty hot one here in the Pacific Northwest. You either need to be sitting in the pool or over the air conditioner vents...but being that my dog tends to claim the vents...it leaves me the pool...no problem with me! Swimming with my boys has to be my favorite thing so far this summer!

We received another package last week...its feels like a continuous celebration. My boys have a whole new routine to their day...checking the mail or the porch for packages!!

This is what came last week from my friend Susan (aka Runner Mom)...not only do I feel blessed to know her...but way super encouraged to keep physically active...she is a GREAT motivator!





Is this not the cutest most adorable thing you have ever laid your eyes on? Seriously! I LOVE it! It is a canvas she made...painted by hand! It has my life verse on it. In this picture it is out on my back deck leading into my yard...the yard in which we distributed ladybugs.


We had a great time 'hand delivering' ladybugs to all the flowers and plants in our yard. Ladybugs help take care of the yard...they eat the other bugs that are eating at your plants!


Distributing the ladybugs in the yard blends with this canvas so well...as soon as I saw the print on the canvas...God instantly spoke to my heart!


We are to be living our lives on purpose...for Him!


If the little ladybugs have a purpose...you better believe we do too!
Thank you Susan for this beautiful canvas!


May we know today that their is such beauty in His design, and then live like it!

The gift is beautiful and your verse is so true. In this day and time we are living in it behooves us to "live our life on purpose for God". He is our only salvation.

Susan is a sweetie! She's sent me a package in the mail before too. And, even more importantly, she has prayed for me...a lot!!!! She even ran a race in honour of my dad and spent the time praying for his healing. She's a special friend...just like you!

Your ladybug canvas is adorable.

Hugs,
Joy

That's beautiful!

I saw the title of your post before I read it, and in between, RJ2 spotted a ladybug (a dull orangey one) in a huge pot of marigolds. Now that I've read your post, her discovery and your words make quite a complete picture.

Keepin' cool in the pool is the way to go here, too!

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
