What A Web We Weave…


The other day…

My husband called me outside on the lanai…

“Come quick!

Bring your camera!

Here’s a shot of a lifetime!!”

At first, I just couldn’t see it!

What was he pointing at???

Then, I moved closer…

And the light shifted…

And suddenly…

I saw this beautiful spider’s web!!!!!!

7-12-13 spider web 004

It was huge!

Oh, so perfect!

Nice to look at…

But, if I was a tiny, little, helpless fly…

I would be tempted to fly into that web…

Which is soooo attractive to me!

And get hopelessly caught!!

Don’t get caught in a web of the devil’s lies!!

Sin may look beautiful…

Even bring temporary pleasure…

But it’s a death trap!!

Just like this beautiful spider web is…

To the spider’s prey!

The enemy of our soul…

Seeks to steal from us…

Ensnare us…

Entangle us…

Kill us…

And destroy us!!

He uses beautiful counterfeit!

It’s hard to see his tricks!

Let Jesus shine His Light…

At just the right angle…

And you’ll be able to suddenly see…

The devious plans…

The enemy has for you!

John 10:10

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I have come that they may have life,

and have it to the full.”

Turn away…

And embrace God’s Plan for your life!!

Jeremiah 29:11

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’

declares the Lord,

‘plans to prosper you

and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.'”


I love this promise of God!!!

    • Oh no! I didn’t actually see the spider, do you think it was big?!?! The web was inside our lanai…I hope the spider that made it wasn’t big…and isn’t still inside…because our Crazy Siberian sometimes tries to eat bugs!!

      • The one I saw was about the size of a half-dollar – legs and all, lime green and bright yellow with black eyes. Being a Hawaiian spider, he had to be extra gorgeous…never thought I’d say that about a spider.

        That was better than the gecko who ran around on the ceiling of our condo, leaving little “gifts” on the kitchen counter beneath him!

        Mmm. I miss Hawaii!


      • What a beautiful spider!! Nope, didn’t see that one here, for sure!! Hawaii is soooo beautiful a place…my husband wants to go back, since our son wasn’t born yet when we went a longtime ago!

        Sometimes I think those lime green, fuzzy caterpillars are gorgeous too…when really I tend to think most bugs are just Yucky!! Ha!

        Here in FL, lizards are everywhere…and it’s a very buggy season here right now! I don’t like cockroaches (or Palmetto Bugs as the Floridians say! Ha!) at all!!!!!!

      • Eew! They tend to be huge closer to the equator. Ours are about 1″ long. The ones in Hawaii were about 4-5″!

        I met one in the ladies’ room. It was scared to find itself in the same space as me, and could find nowhere to hide except my feet. It’s hard to pull your pants up while trying to dodge a cockroach! 🙂


      • Yuk!!

        My husband was a cop in East Orange, NJ…and they used to have a contest called “Roach of the Day!” They would put them on their bulletin board to see who caught the largest one! Cops think that stuff is funny!!
