See it.

Spider beside her

Live it.

Their official name is argiope aurantia, but simply called a garden spider. If you're like most people, the first time you encounter one of these big yellow guys, you want to either run or find a way to kill it and then run. What's amazing is how they can construct a huge web over night and are aware of danger when it comes near. Recently, one of these beautiful creatures decided to spin a web right in front of our large rear window. Our family had front row seats to watch him tediously work in a circular fashion until he rested in the center of his large inspect trap. While there was talk of taking down the web, we found it more interesting to watch him. It was even more amazing how he reacted to us approaching him and to our dog who noticed him and couldn't stop barking. I guess, for the time being, spidey has found a sanctuary in the midst of ours.

Pray it.

God, my sanctuary is where Your Spirit has made His home.
