Praying Mantis

His prayers were answered. While my husband served our nation overseas in Afghanistan, our five children and I served Mother Nature outside our door in Waxahachie, TX. We interrupted Mother Nature to rescue this beautiful praying mantis, who was caught in the grip of a spider's web. Our loved one was protecting freedom, while we were giving it back to this precious praying mantis.
