Several of my friends despise spiders. Myself — it’s usually more startle factor than actual fear of the animal.
That does not mean I lack fear. There are plenty of other animals that I avoid, cringe when I encounter, and haven’t figured out why God lets them survive.
And then there are man-made items. And I have some fears about the ones designed or capable of doing harm to other people – or me.
But have you ever looked at a man-made item and given thanks it’s what it is — and not a living creature seeking supper? Such as…
I am the root monster — and I’m coming to sip at your veins.
(Yes, I’ve seen a few low budget monster movies in my life.)
