Darn Bugs!

This is one of my favorite flowers in my garden. It is an orange cone flower and it blooms all summer. I noticed yesterday that the Japanese Beetles were having a feast in my garden so I had to spray everything and I'm not sure it made much of a difference. I think when I get to heaven, I want to ask God why in the world did He make fleas, ticks, gnats, flies and JAPANESE BEETLES!! But seriously, I love summer. The absolute beauty of the flowers, trees , sky , corn fields and wheat is amazing. I wonder if it ticks God off when we pass by all that beauty without noticing. I know He put it here for us to enjoy so go notice something is the verse for this week...hope you enjoy it.

Matthew 18: 12-14

What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way, your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.

That is one of my favorite perennial flowers too! And the passage from Holy Scripture is also one of my favorites! :-) Stephen
