Butterfly Joy: Living Simply In Abundance of God’s Creations

“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)
