Yesterday when I was pulling some weeds I saw this beautiful little white woolly worm. I ran into the house to retrieve my camera, afraid that when I got back he would be gone. But...I found him and he posed for me. This is the first time I have ever seen a white one before and I was very excited. When I was a little girl I spent hours watching ants build their hills and do their work back and forth...always busy. I loved observing nature as they were my "toys". I knew there was a God who created them all and I loved him so much because it was as if he created them just for me. I developed a personal relationship with our creator at an early age. Not because my parents or anyone I knew was teaching me these things. Because it was so clear to me through my own discovery that he was there and mysterious. I knew then that I didn't need to have an answer to every question, because that would spoil all of the wonderful simple feelings of just being quiet and still in his presence. Even now at 59 years old, I see something like this woolly worm and know that God is near and we have shared a special moment together.
I titled this post The Change Is Near because woolly worms usually are a sign of weather change. White ones mean lots of snow. Another beautiful sight to see.
