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 I know you'll enjoy her writing just as much as I do.

These four-legged reptiles strike almost as much terror in me as a legless, slithering snake or an eight-legged creeping spider or a stinging six-legged critter.

Reptiles and arachnids and insects – oh my!

Yet even though they terrify me and I dislike their defense mechanisms, I find an intriguing and exquisite beauty in each of the aforementioned creations.

A sure sign of a summer evening is the dazzling display of flashing lights at the edge of the woods or in the grassy back yard. The seemingly-synchronous twinkling dots that I see on my after-dark walk with God are throngs of fireflies out on a warm night in search of a mate.
