CONSIDER THE COW KILLER WASP
by Julie Lavender




On my walk with God today I encountered – and steered clear from – the gorgeous cow killer, or as it is sometimes called, the velvet ant.

 Guest Blogger


My guest blogger today is Debra DuPree Williams. Debra and I recently returned from the North Georgia Christian Writers Conference, in Toccoa, Georgia, where we mixed and mingled with new writing friends and familiar writing friends and some stellar conference presenters. (And Debra won an award while there for a poem she submitted! How awesome is that?)

Please enjoy reading her blog about fall that first appeared on her site, http://debradupreewilliams.blogspot.com/

Visit her website for more of her work - you'll enjoy her writing, just like I do!

CONSIDER THE SEA OATS
by Julie Lavender





A recent trip to Amelia Island, off the coast of northern Florida, led my path across the sands of Fernandina Beach. 












Just above the waters’ edge, sea oats grow prolifically, just like they do along the eastern seaboard all the way up to Virginia and along the coast line of the Gulf States.






CONSIDER THE ANHINGA

by Julie Lavender






On my walk with God today, I spotted the long-necked and beautiful Anhinga. 











Sometimes called a Snakebird because of the way it swims with its whole body submerged except for the neck and head, the Anhinga typically feeds on fish, but will sometimes eat snakes and small turtles.









CONSIDER THE NUT WEEVIL
by Julie Lavender



Often my walk with God lends itself to a lesson from God’s nature that I can’t miss, like my recent Anhinga post. Who can miss that large bird with his wings outstretched?


But more often than not, I find God’s lessons in the itty-bitty. Like today.

GUEST BLOGGER

My guest blogger today is my writing friend, Jeannie Waters. Jeannie's blog where this article first appeared is entitled "Brighten Someone's Day"and she truly does that with each blog post! Jeannie and I were online friends before we met in person at a writers' conference. And her ever-present smile definitely brightened my day when we became friends 'for real' and not just online ones! 

Please read her blog below that fits perfectly with my blog theme of learning about God through His amazing creations, and then check out her other posts at www.jeanniewaters.com. I know you'll enjoy her writing just as much as I do.
