The Change

Something amazing happened in our house last week.  And I'm bummed I missed most of it.  But what I did see was amazing.  It reminds me of a verse that says "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"  How can that be you might ask?

You may remember that Savannah won a chrysalis from the Tulsa Botanical Garden a few weeks ago.  (That story HERE) We stuck it in our extra fish tank and watched it do nothing for days.  Then one day we all thought the chrysalis is changing it is becoming transparent and you can even see the butterfly inside.  Then the very next day.  This happened!  Within an hour it was out.  Unfolding it's wings and drying them.

Butterflies have fingers?

The old life for the caterpillar is gone... no more crawling on the ground and seeing things from a small perspective.  The new life the butterfly has emerged with wings to fly and see more and experience more than it ever dreamed.  Same exact insect but totally different creature!  God has a way of doing that taking the old and bringing new life to it better than we could ever have imagined.  And just like the butterfly there is an element of trust/faith that God knows what HE is doing with us. Will you trust God with your life?  (Sense the need to read more about that? Click HERE or I don't trust God and I have serious questions click HERE.  I totally trust this website!)

Savannah came home from school to meet her new friend.  After dinner we released her.  Within a few seconds she was flying.  She landed in the leaves of a tall tree and stayed there until we went inside.  That was the best "pet" ever!
We will plant milkweed next year in hopes of more butterflies to watch hatch!
