Proof of God's Sense of Humor...

The Fireflies at Stone Mtn State Park NC were incredible!!!! They were the highlight of our evenings. Unlike Georgia fireflies with their slow lazy flights, these lightning bugs were zooming through the air quite fast, and didn't stay near the ground...they were from ground level all the way up just above the trees! And they blinked at a different rate from our GA fireflies - quite bright & fast. It looked like a Disney lightshow in the woods. A totally amazing, God given show. WOW!
We tried to photogragh's hard to do, but you can see the light green lights in these pictures. (Click on the picture for a close up, better view.)

I've always said that fireflies are proof that God has a sense of else can we explain a critter with a blinky bottom!

Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,
And here on earth come emulating flies,
That though they never equal stars in size,
(And they were never really stars at heart)
Achieve at times a very star-like start.
Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.
