Some years ago I was attracted by breeding exotic insects and since I couldn’t get that time Eurycantha Calcarata, my brother offered me a Peruphasma schultei pair. I was impressed by their color combination, shammy skin and the bright red wings. I enjoyed breeding them for a while, but since they are doing very well as pets and breeding is not difficult, they had many babies and after a while it began to be unbearable to keep them. Be very careful with breeding them, if you don’t plan to make profit 🙂 They will spread very fast and in a short while it will be difficult to recognize the poop from the eggs :-)))

Hearts and Motives
When David chose his son Solomon to succeed him on the throne, David charged him to serve God “with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind” (1 Chronicles 28:9). David made this charge because he knew that God’s requirement is full, wholehearted devotion. The Lord is concerned about external choices and behavior (see Joshua 24:15), but he goes much deeper, into the inner self (see 1 Samuel 16:7).
To love God with a “willing mind” is to grow in bringing and surrendering our whole selves to him, to take responsibility for our thinking, feelings, motives and for the development of our mind. Many people often do not consider what they think about or feel. They just let their thoughts live inside their heads without observing or questioning them. But our thoughts and feelings are an important aspect of who we are, and when we pay attention to what goes through our heads and hearts, we find out a lot about the state of our being. God knows that our insides will ultimately determine our choices on the outside (see Luke 6:43–45).
God wants us to follow him and love him with our whole being: heart, soul, mind and strength (see Mark 12:30). He knows what is inside us anyway, and he wants a full relationship with us. So we need to bring whatever is inside us, good or bad, to him, and he will help and guide us.
