Say to the people of the land:
‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says about those living in Jerusalem and
in the land of Israel:
They will eat their food in anxiety and drink their water in despair,
for their land will be stripped of everything in it because of the violence
of all who live there.
The inhabited towns will be laid waste and the land will be desolate.
Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”

Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them,
“Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined,
and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.
If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself.
How then can his kingdom stand? 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul,
by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges.
But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons,
then the kingdom of God has come upon you.

Oh goodness…now what. Are they ready for the next journey to cocoon? Are they running out of time to butterfly before cold weather?
Cocoon next, then butterfly but they’d best hurry— but of course here in Georgia we don’t have much of a fall anymore 😑
They are busy and hungry little creatures aren’t they!
Well I want to write a allegorical post about our society but was too weary
Plenty of time for that. Still feeling bad?
New steroids and stronger cream so poison is getting better as is the cold— I think my spirit is weary from all this mess over our country with a damn pandemic thrown in top
Yeah, it’s a mess alright and getting messier by the day. I go back and forth with my weariness over it. The less news i listen to the better I feel 🤣
Oh I so agree Tricia!!!— Gregory will flip it on and then go into a rage— and I will practically have to scream that this is why I’m sick of watching the news so flip back to an old college football rerun— and speaking of which, this whole quasi new football season is for the birds—when this year finally ends, my new tradition will be to have a bonfire at midnight news eve burning all the 2020 calendars!!!!!!
I’m with you on that! And let’s burn all the masks too!
Great they’ll act as starter— the calendars will be kindling 🤣😂
We’ve raised a lot of swallowtails over the years in the family herb garden. When the children were young, we’d bring in some caterpillars, keep them stocked with dill and parsley, and watch the transformation. This year we know of two caterpillars who lived in the herb garden and became butterflies. J.
It’s such a marvelous‘transformation’ that speaks of the mystery that is so much greater than all this madness.. simply taking place in a pot of chewed up parsley in the middle of no where 🤣😂
So true. J.
Oh. My. Goodness. I cannot believe the stark (pun intended) difference in photos from your last caterpillar post! Yee-gads!
My daughters would love these pictures of the catepillars
