My family and I were at a local playground a few evenings ago. I saw something curious on the side of a little playhouse. It looked like some sort of toy sticking out horizontally from the outer wall. I looked closer and it was moving!
It was a cicada. And we caught it during it’s moment of emerging from it’s exoskeleton (also known as the exuviae). I couldn’t help but think about how the new comes out of the old…..
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV
