Today I would like to introduce a backyard friend, called a Praying Mantis. He is known by this name, because he often stands in a praying position. When in this position, however, he is really not praying, but he is looking for his next meal of live insects. He is very good at camouflaging himself in order to not get eaten himself, though mom still caught a good shot of him!
On a more serious note, I would like to talk about the Importance of Prayers. There is a doggie called Jackson who lives in the UK who is very sick. He needs lots of prayers from as many of us as he can right now. He has gotten some terrible news about his health. Please go visit him at Jackson's World and send him some prayers.
My good friend, Deetz, asked that I post these Prayer Flags on my blog, that his friends made, to help Jackson get better. Let's all pray for Jackson.
