Born Again?

Have you ever found yourself in the midst of a butterfly migration?  I have had this blessing in my life twice and I will say it is the sweetest magical moment. I live in Colorado and we are in the middle of a butterfly migration right now.  If I step out into my back yard butterflies will circle my head and even touch my face.  I can see two or three on a flower at the same time.  Feeling very blessed!  A precious gift from the Lord! These in my back yard are Painted Ladies.  I have always loved these creatures and love using their life cycle to explain being born again.  These Beauties will lay an egg, that egg will hatch a caterpillar, and that caterpillar will crawl around on its belly for a while living a very lowly life.  It than spins a cocoon around itself.  Time passes and than one day that caterpillar begins to move in that cocoon and wiggle Born of the Spiritits way out.  It is surprised to find out that it has wings and can now fly.  Instead of a sometimes thorny worm it has become a beautiful butterfly that can fly around the flowers and is free. Not relegated to a life of crawling, but now enjoying flight.  Much like us before we know the Lord we are like that caterpillar, life confined to crawling around verses when we come to know the Lord. We can now spread our wings and fly with the Lord.  I’m a butterfly,I was born again, are you?

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
