I think I'm onto something BIG here...

I was just babbling tonight to my hubby while we were sitting outside under the trees. The katydids were clicking loudly, the grasshoppers were playing their songs. The crickets were chirping. A lovely night, really.

What came to mind was the fact that the insects and other creatures walking this planet have a distinct way of communicating. They know what they're saying, even if we don't understand it.

Here's the deep thought...if there is an omniscient god who has designed this planet and all living creatures upon it, he/she may have built in a ton of puzzles to figure out. If there is such a God... (funny thing just happened as I wrote this...a boxelder type bug just flew into my ear. Coincidence? I think not!)... he/she may have a clever wit and sense of humor as well as a knack for languages. What if all of the bugs are chirping things that we want or need to know? The meaning of life? The grasshoppers have that covered if you listen carefully enough. The cure for cancer? The mosquitoes know that one...and they're trying to tell you every time they fly by your ear! Listen next, time, will you?!

So, carry this a little further. Every bug or animal that becomes extinct is another riddle that will never be solved.

...Just a hmmm for tonight....
