Tiny works of art

It was really foggy early this week. It's also been pretty cold in the mornings lately, so the frost was quite thick. Since they were coated in little ice crystals, all the spiders' webs outside really stood out. The two below are actually two halves of the same web that some spider decided to spin on either side of a post in our porch railing. They were obviously corresponding pieces of the same web, but there was a big, thick pole in the middle. It made me think--isn't it amazing that tiny little creatures like a spider the size of my fingernail can create something so beautiful? If any human made something like that, we would think he or she was a very creative artist, but these little spiders are just doing what they were made to do! The real Artist in this case is the one who made the spider.


  1. Amen to that! I love how God uses the little things to display His majesty. Great pictures, Ashley!

  2. Amen! Wonderful post, Ashley.
