I’m not a fan of the spider. I mean, in general, spiders do not bother me. But those deadly ones, well, they tend to make me brush my shoulders at the mere thought of them. Yes.They.Do.
My good friend cleans my house. Yes, this makes her a really good friend. She informed me that she killed two brown recluse spiders in my house the other day. Loverly.
I immediately advised my knight in shining armor of our house being overcome by poisonous arachnids, knowing he would draw his sword and fight every single multi-legged creature to the bitter end.
“Call Orkin,” he suggested.
Oh, Kris, you steal my heart. And, I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and my husband who sat upon him was called “Scared of Spiders. “
So, yesterday morning I found myself praying for protection over my children. “Oh, Lord, do away with these spiders with your miraculous power!” I’m not sure why exactly I started praying like one of those old time television evangelists. It just seemed appropriate. Before you know it, I’ll stop wearing make-up and my hair will be in a bun.
A spider-killer from Orkin came for a visit after I let the Holy Ghost loose in the house. She (hear that Kris? SHE?) did some sort of spider-killing treatment. I’m hoping those crawlers are gone in the name of Jesus.
At times, I feel a bit silly praying for such things. But, then I remember, what concerns me concerns Him.
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you.” 1 Peter 5:7
Lord knows, those arachnids worry me.
Anything worrying you?

im worried that i’m not going to receive your email updates in the morning for your blog anymore.
HA HA HA HA HA
Any religion that banishes spiders is good by me!
I command the spiders to BE GONE in the name of JESUS!!!!
And I do believe we can pray for any and all things.
Those spiders are scarey and dangerous!
Reminds me of the time you shared your version of “Little Miss Muffet” at my house and I laughed so hard I could hardly breathe!!!!
Sorry about the spiders though. I’ll pray too!!!
I’m worried that I’ll have to see you without makeup and with a bun. And, that you’d make it look good,hm.
Just remember that spiders are people too.
When we lived in the deserts of SoCal a few years ago, it was the time when the Crocodile Hunter was big. We were walking around our property when my 4 year old daughter spots a snake and yells “Crikey”, then tries to pick it up. Thanks Steve Erwin for that.
Around our house, spiders are just part of the family. My wife told me the other day that she was working on her laptop when a spider started walking across the keyboard. She said that she started talking to it in a sweet voice and it turned toward her and looked at her for the longest time while she heaped praises on it for killing the flies.
