First of all, your new header is just lovely! And the quote is so appropriate for what you've been experiencing!!!

Your photos of the mantis are wonderful. It's so heartening to think how these little creatures could survive that fire. God is so good to all of his creatures...great and small!

I have not seen one this summer. I marvel at them...how they look...how they move.

I love insects. Especially Praying Mantis. i can still recall the first time I saw one as a child. I thought they were the most magical thing I'd ever seen. I still do.
