“Dear Lord, please don’t allow this butterfly to fly away before I can get a picture of it! It’s sooo beautiful!”
*I did not get a chance to grab my camera, but I used my iPhone while it was in my back pocket.
While I was on the phone a short bit ago wishing my best friend a Happy Birthday, my son was going out the door to the backyard . He came right back and told me that there was a butterfly outside.
I had just come home from shopping and its well over 102 degrees…. I’m hot and tired, yet I flew out the door to capture a picture not giving my lack of energy a second thought! Anyone who knows me knows that I am crazy about butterflies and I end up with the biggest smile on my face! (STILL smiling as I type. What a blessing to receive!)
Only the good Lord knows why I become so elated when I see butterflies. This has put the biggest smile on my face today so far. This actually beats buying the pair of shoes I just came home with!
Sounds weird? Maybe so, but it’s the simple things in life that bring me the greatest joy! We have been given so many free gifts from the Lord that we really can not comprehend how or why he did what he did in the Beginning of time. I wonder if we truly appreciate the love, design and creation of His mighty works. Just think about it. All Creation was made at the sound of his voice in a matter of days.
This joy I have the world didn’t give it to me and it surely can’t take it away!
May you all have a wonderful summer!
And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:23-25 KJV)
Beautiful butterfly.I’m all smiles:)
It is….. 🙂
OH! Pretty! Glad you captured it, on your camera, at least. 🙂
Thank you Patti! Yes I’m glad I was able to capture a pic too. I am happy it stayed around long enough for me. A simple prayer worked for me. Thank you Jesus. 🙂
Beautiful Butterfly with a touch of blue. Butterfly on brick, now that’s a different view- I have not seen. What a Birthday Butterfly surprise for your Best Friend, on her Special Day! Hopefully, you shared the news with her. If so, you could print and send to her, or possibly frame it for her. Would be a nice gesture of your friendship with your BFF ♥
Butterflies always brightens the heart.
Butterflies for me means transformation…far from the world and closer to God. Just the way he wants me. Yes, God was on time because these little beauties move fast! Blessings…
Thanks for sharing.

Yes it was a wonderful moment for me! The butterfly actually had the iridescent rainbow colors on it. I could not capture it though. I may be able to adjust it on the computer or my phone. Anyway, yes it was on the brick wall going down the steps where the dogs usually bark at strangers! ( you know the spot I’m referring to )
My friend knows about the butterfly. I handed the phone over to Hannah while I took the pic. A framed photo would be nice. Thanks for the suggestion Shenine.
God is truly awesome and grand. I was so happy that the little creature stayed still long enough for me to take a few pics of it.
So glad to hear of your experience with the Lord in relation to the transformation you’ve had this far. Thank you for sharing that with me.
Blessings in abundance,
