Now, I am not one of those mothers who can wander around outside and teach a science lesson without a book. I need books, I need help with ideas, but sometimes God just says here you go here is your lesson today.

After we had finished picking apples and stored them in our carport, our No 2 son found this amazing caterpillar.

Here it is, it was huge and a lovely bright green colour. It was pretty spectacular as caterpillars go. Our 7 year old son wanted to feed it to the fish but I encouraged him to find a container and give it some vine leaves to eat/sleep in and leave it be. Sometimes our son can love these things to death (literally).


The next morning I went out to see if it was still alive, and it was. I did think it wasn’t far off dying as it was slow and sluggish. But guess what????

It was getting ready to make a cocoon and weave itself away for a while.

Below are pictures of it starting to weave the cocoon, you can still see the caterpillar inside.  It curled the vine leaves around itself too.DSC_1175



This only took overnight to do, now it is about half the size and quite hard.DSC_1253I’m not sure how long it will take to hatch.  Some books say 2 weeks some say 2 months, but we wait with anticipation.

I was going to leave this until it hatched but I couldn’t wait to share with you another facet of God’s awesome creation.

What lessons has God given you from his creation???


If you have read my aquaponics update you would know that our yabbies have had babies.

Below is a photo of the eggs on the yabby.  It is quite amazing how this happens and I have never seen this before.  We have over 40 yabbies in our tanks helping to keep the tanks clean and providing us with the odd meal or two.


Here is a photo of the babies hatched but still on the mother.  They look a bit like maggots but are exactly like a big yabby except smaller.


I tried to get a photo of our baby yabbies but they were just too small.  Below is a picture of a bit bigger one, and this is exactly how the small ones look. The small ones are the size of two pin heads but look exactly like the one below.


Now the point of this post isn’t to educate you on our yabbies – but if it does that’s okay.

This post is to remind us of the awesomeness of God’s creation. Even as a Christian, brought up in a Christian home and educated in God’s creation, I am still mystified and awe inspired by how God created things.

In Genesis it states that God said… and it was created.  He just spoke, just think about that, all he did was speak and it was created.

How can anyone think that this just happened,  or came out of a big bang or dragged itself out of a slime pit.

How can anyone NOT be a believer, just because of this.

Revelation 4:11 “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”

John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible

PS: This is just the yabby I am talking about there are heaps more things just on our little farm that prove to me that God created everything.
