I have seen the giant Sequoia trees, but I’ve never seen the one who planted them.
I have seen the Painted Desert, but I’ve never seen the one who brushed it’s colors.
I have seen the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, but I’ve never seen the one who filled them.
I have seen the light and felt  the warmth of the sun, but I’ve never seen the one who ignighted it’s great blaze.
I have seen the earth rotate through a day and night, but I’ve never seen the one who sent it spinning.
I have seen the stars, shining from the vast black space, but I’ve never seen the one who scattered them there.

But someday, I will.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
        – John 1:1-4  NKJV

A Battered & Tattered Butterfly

Ever feel like this? 

This guy was sitting on my back patio, just slowly flapping his wings up and down.  I don’t know if he could still fly or not.  One thing I do know, he’s been through a lot. 

When I took this picture, I could definitely relate.  That was a few days ago.  Today, I realize that I am still in the catepiller stage.  I am grateful that when I break from my cocoon, my butterfly life will be in the Father’s meadow, full of sunshine and beauty.  And my wings, will be eternally perfect.
