The students in our building have been learning about how plants grow. And you can’t have plants without bugs. And in our school we’ve had a surplus of bugs.
Ladybugs that is. 🙂 Homegrown.
You could find a Ladybug Land habitat sitting on many a teacher’s desk just waiting for the tiny larvae to turn into cocoons and evolve into adult ladybugs. And once they did, the students took “nature” outside to nature, where it belongs, to let them free to live.
Nothing is more enjoyable than watching the wonder of small children as they experience the world around them.
And who doesn’t love ladybugs? Ladybugs are my favorite. ♡
Legend has it that ladybugs bring good luck. They are good bugs. They prey on aphids, the bad bugs, or pests.
I’m not a big believer in luck myself. I’ll choose faith over luck every time. But I am all about choosing good over bad.
Let’s all be a little more like our friends the ladybugs, spending our lives doing good for others. After all, God made us all. With an inherent purpose. To love one another and do good works.
And the next time you see a ladybug, before she flies away, thank God for the little things. Those things in life we often overlook. Like ladybugs. And the wonder of children. But, thanks to JWE, I got to enjoy one spring afternoon as a class of preschoolers released their habitat on the playground while I was present. I guess you could say a ladybug did bring me luck after all. 🙂
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, Hebrews 10:24
Love and laughter,
