Thinking of you
Butterflies...I love them and never tire of seeing them flit about my yard or across the front of a card. I'm amazed by them, their beauty and fragility. It's the Lord who created them, formed them in secret in the chrysalis, gave them the strength to break out of their chrysalis and become the beautiful butterfly He intended them to be.
Just like God has a purpose for the butterfly, He has a purpose for you and I. He loves us, sent His Son to die for us and wants to create something beautiful from our lives. There are days I struggle to believe He can make anything beautiful from the mess of my life, so I have to trust Him by faith.
When I look at a butterfly, knowing what he was and seeing what he is now, I do believe God can make something beautiful with my life.
Making this card today from a rediscovered Hero Arts stamp set brought all these thoughts to mind.
Thanks for letting me share.
Hope your Saturday is a beautiful blessing!
