I cringed when I turned on my reading lamp. No way. I could tolerate spiders on occasion—but not this one. Its beady eyes seemed to look down at me as it hung from the ceiling above our bed.
Grabbing a flyswatter, I summoned my sleepy husband to take care of the intruding arachnid. With one solid whack, the spider was no more. Relieved, I went to sleep.
The next day, I discovered the spider wasn’t poisonous or dangerous. It was a common Wolf Spider—completely harmless.
Ironically, that evening as the sun began to set, I was surprised to see a spider web that stretched between two branches of the tree in our yard. But, it didn't look like any ordinary web. It glowed.
I stared in awe, as each strand of the web radiated with iridescent colors (imagine the the clarity and brilliance of a prism). I was taken aback by its beauty.
I thought of the lowly spider, how there was one less in the world because of my fear, the wonder of the web, and God’s design for every living thing. It was a lesson I'd never forget.
