This little fly helped teach my sons the value of life. After having fallen into my old coffee, he rested safely on my hand and tried his best to clean up and dry off. He eventually felt well enough to move up to my shoulder, as pictured here.
I brought my hand down for my sons to see the recovering creature. I talked to them about wings and the nature of flight. We talked about God’s creation and that we love God, love his creation, and respect life – even the life of a little housefly.
