One Distracting Lady Bug

image source:  FreePik
In church yesterday, about just the time the Pastor started his message on Jesus being our Counselor, I became distracted by a cute little lady bug crawling across the back of the pew right in front of me.  I picked it up and put it on my notes and tried to keep it on the paper.  Lady bugs are fast!  I had to watch it very closely and when it got close to the edge of the paper, I gently used the pen to turn it around and get it going back in another direction.  I'm sure the Pastor was wondering what I was doing.  It went pretty good until I had to use the pen to write something in my notes.  It got on my thumb a few times and fell on my lap once but I got it back.

I had no intention of squishing this little bug, but rather was planning how I would get it back outside.  At the end I used two papers (the bulletin and my interactive note guide) to keep the little ladybug on a paper.  When it got to the edge, I just put the other paper next to it and let it crawl on that one.  It was pretty warm yesterday so I didn't have any problem opening a door and letting it out into the courtyard.

I was still able to listen to the message during my lady bug encounter in case you are wondering as some of my Facebook friends were.  Playing with the ladybug reminded me of how wonderful it is when God redirects our lives to accomplish the good plans He has for us. 

So, what would you have done in this situation?

I can't believe you did all that....and then let him outside to die! EEEK!

They can survive in the house for the winter...I'm sure it would have been fine in the church. I would have giggled...and left it there.

I would have done the same thing. We take critters outside all the time. Unharmed.

Have a fabulous day. Scritches to the babies. ☺

I would have saved the ladybug too although Lin would have made me worry about it freezing outside. Sheesh!

This certainly qualified for Silly Sunday. Thanks for linking up. ☺
