created with a purpose
When I saw the butterfly this morning, the shadow of the house still extended to where it rested. By the time I returned outside, the sun had climbed high enough to shine on the butterfly so I knew my time was short.
What struck me was the extent of the damage on the butterfly’s wing. I wondered if it would still be able to fly. After allowing me a few shots, he flew away.
I think it is a good reminder. God made us who we are. We can cripple ourselves through our own bad decisions or we can be crippled by the bad decisions of others. It matters little who or what hurts us, we are still God’s and we are still created with a purpose. God meant for us to fly and if we rely on Him, we can.
For my cousin Kira.
