Can you find the Luna Moth?

 "A garden of love grows in a grandmother's heart"! What a great saying!

As spring is turning into summer, Pops and I often head outside to a garden filled with flowers and sunshine and rocks ...  with butterflies and moths and lots of teaching opportunities.
The other day Pops found a struggling Luna Moth and put it in a tree.  Then he asked me to find the green moth, which was much harder to do than I expected. Its wings blended right in with the leaves.

I wish that the grandkids had been at our house that day. But I took a picture of the moth in the tree and will show it to them. And then we'll talk about the amazing way that God created insects.

If your grandchildren visit soon, you might show them the pictures in this post and ask if they can find the Luna Moth. Or, you may want to go on a nature walk with your grandkids and take turns pointing out God's creation.

How have you taught your child or grandchild about God through nature?

Have a great weekend!
