Cicadas

Why I hate cicadas:
they are extremely ugly... and not just ugly, but BIG and ugly
they are everywhere
they leave their exoskeletons all over everything

Why I love cicadas:
Cicadas don't seem to serve any purpose, as far as I can tell. I (seriously) thought today about how I would like to ask God what he had in mind when he created cicadas. The fact that I cannot figure this out, and that I never would have made them if it had been up to me, just goes to show that:
1)I am not God
2)he does things for reasons that I may never understand.
So, I have decided that, as ugly as they are, I love the cicadas, because they remind me that God's ways are not my ways and that he understands way more than I ever will.

(And maybe THAT is the purpose of cicadas... to remind me that I ain't God.)

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. -Isaiah 55:8

When you think about it cicadas are actually "litter bugs" leaving their exoskeletons around and such. LOL

When you get an answer about the cicadas, perhaps you can find out why God made mosquitoes...
