Butterflies are Free

 Once I was a caterpillar
crawling on the ground.
Then I spun a chrysalis,
and wrapped it all around.
Then one day the sun shone,
and warmed me all inside,
Slowly slowly I emerged,
I could no longer hide.
I soaked in the sunshine
for a long long while,

Then I tried my brand new wings, And it made me smile!
Now I'm a little butterfly, colorful and bright,
You might see me if you look outside when it's light.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 
   2 Corinthians 5:17

George said...

Your butterfly pictures and poem go great with the Scripture. Thanks for the mention of Snapper II's blog. That 'hearse' is really something.

Ginny said...

Your pictures are gorgeous! I don't know how you got such good ones in the wind, unless you used the fast motion setting. The Snapper II post is so weird! I think it may have been the real deal, and the departed had a huge sense of humor, maybe last wishes for funeral instructions? Or not. I really would have followed it, yes, I would!! And see where they went and everything!

The butterfly is so pretty and I love that poem.

Snapper II's post is funny. I did think it was real for a second or two.
