MORE Sunday Faith Blog? :-)
So, my friend found herself praying with the old nun for a minute or two, got bored and changed the channel. Something caused her to turn her night table lamp on and she noticed the oddest thing: a lady bug was standing on her night stand. A lady bug in the HOUSE? Upstairs in a bedroom with no windows open?
This friend got up, remembering that they're supposed to be a lucky sign, and Googled LADY BUGS (Coccinellids) to see if others think they're good luck, and to see if she should worry about some infestation or something. As she read, she told me her eyes bugged out (pardon the expression) because Lady Bugs "In Christian areas, Coccinellids are often associated with the Virgin Mary."
How weird is THAT, folks? Total coincidence? Maybe, but........
