In appearance, butterflies are incredibly diverse. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and their colors span the rainbow. The smallest butterfly is the Sinai baton blue (Pseudophilotes sinaicus). Its wingspan is 0.25 inches (6.25 mm), which is smaller than the size of a dime. The largest butterfly is the female Queen Alexandra birdwing (Ornithoptera alexandrae). Its wingspan reaches 12.5 inches (31.8 cm).
Some brightly colored butterflies, such as the Goliath birdwing (Ornithoptera goliath), are poisonous. They become toxic from the plants they eat during the caterpillar stage. Bright colors serve as a warning that the butterfly is toxic. When a predator eats a poisonous butterfly, it becomes sick and quickly associates those bright colors with an unpleasant experience not to be repeated. Certain others look virtually identical to poisonous butterflies, a defense known as mimicry. The Viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus) resembles the poisonous monarch (Danaus plexippus) and is usually left alone by predators.
I had a similar experience a few months ago when I read some books that challenged the way I read Scripture and viewed slavery and racism. They encouraged me to read the Bible through the eyes of a Black person and see racism from a Black perspective. I had never done that before, at least not as much as I should have. I was looking at these matters using the old black-and-white box. My reading helped me see things in living color.
SHAWN WAYANS We had African Americans, Asians, females. We brought gay characters into the living room in a fun way. It was all funny and fresh. Look at diversity in TV today! We had it all in one episode.
Passers-by often stop to admire the home's playful blue-and-yellow façade, which was inspired by the colors inside. Note how the center porch wall is angled to emphasize the view. G.M. Libby and Sons Masonry in North Yarmouth put in the salvaged granite steps, bluestone deck and walkway, and granite and basalt veneers recovered from an old stonewall.
Inspired by God's creation, the 3-part painting demo is very user-friendly and informative. Susan breaks down the process of watercolor painting, using her layering\" process, into easily understandable parts that when put together leads the participant/artist into a fully finished painting.
\"I work primarily in transparent watercolor because its character allows for a wonderful blending of spontaneity and control\", Crouch continues. \"As a result, my paintings are a fusion of realistic and interpretive elements. Most projects begin with preliminary sketches to determine composition, value pattern and colors. Once these initial decisions are in place, I follow where the watercolor leads me.\"

We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh about 2,000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill.
We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.
- Dialogue, understanding and the widespread promotion of a culture of tolerance, acceptance of others and of living together peacefully would contribute significantly to reducing many economic, social, political and environmental problems that weigh so heavily on a large part of humanity;
In the first verse of Isaiah 53 we see that Israel, for the most part, would reject the Messiah who came to die for her sins. Yet, a future salvation of Israel is promised by God. The day is coming when the eyes of the Jewish people will be opened to see in living color that Jesus of Nazareth is their only Messiah and Savior.
During spare hours, Jake enjoys spending quality time with Pastor Janelle, their beautiful toddler, two dogs, and a kitty.
