Beautiful Butterflies

Butterflies intrigue me. I love their infinite glory. How light and free they must be!


"You can chase a butterfly all
over the field and never catch it. But if
you sit quietly in the grass, it will come
and sit on your shoulder."


"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was
over, it turned into a butterfly."


"To make a wish come true,
whisper it to a Butterfly.
Upon these wings it will be taken to
heaven and granted, for they are the
messengers of the Great Spirit."
~Native American Legend


A tiny egg placed on a leaf, warmed by the sun, produced
a tiny caterpillar. As it ate the leaf, it grew rapidly, it's outer
skin became hard, and crusty. It would have to shed that
crust to grow any further
One day, miraculously, two silken strands, hardened by the
air, flowed from its head. The strands totally encased the
worm and the branch it was on, it became a silken cocoon.
After a time of incubation, it broke out of the silken case.
And even more miraculously, nature witnessed the second
birthday of the little worm. Behold! The little worm was a
beautiful butterfly!
This is what must happen to you. You were born once, nourished,
and you grew. As we all taste of life too freely, sin forms a
crusty shell around the heart. It has to be shed if you are
to grow any further - spiritually....
But if the seed of God's Word (the Bible) is planted in the
silken fibers of your soft, receptive heart, and it incubates,
something miraculous happens in you - understanding. Then you
will grow in the knowledge of Who and What Jesus Christ is!
Heaven and earth will witness your second birthday, when you
accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Behold! A new spiritual you will emerge - a new creature in
Christ - born again spiritually, by God's Word, to tell others
about this miracle that has happened to you.
Go and be a butterfly!

As Time Passes

The moment I saw this picture through my lense I knew it was one of my best. Perfection in God’s eyes. What a gorgeous view. It makes me want to breath in His goodness.

After the rain

I love the smell right after the rain. Can’t you just take a deep breath, close your eyes and imagine it now? Remember as a child how the rain called your name. Puddles well who could resist?



Add or take away the color and you get simply beautiful!


And who doesn’t have their tomatoes sitting out trying to get them just perfect in the summer?


I think of rain as God watering His very large garden….we must have rain thrive!

Water Beauty

We ventured out today to get a few pond plants. I was moved by all the beauty that surrounded us. I wish there was a way to pack all that relaxation and peacefulness feeling up and keep it in my heart forever. Miraculous nature everywhere. God sure does take care of us!

I don’t know about you but Water Lilies just make me smile inside.



I happen to capture this Dragonfly…..ohhh was he gorgeous!


Love love love these Hydreanna’s!


Some added human touches make the scenery even more spectacular.


What pond is complete without a few waterfalls? I also caught a frog in this one!



THIS is what life is ALL about! Seeing and enjoying all God’s magnificient wonders.

In my little world, butterflies represent freedom and those that have died. I sometimes envision loved ones that have gone on, to be secretly watching us through these little insects. They sure are another one of God’s most beautiful things.



See the lights in this picture….huh wonder who this truly is?





Butterflies, Oh, Butterflies,
your beauty is so rare.
Butterflies, Oh, butterflies,
How could anyone dare
to catch you and to hold you
against your solemn will?
They should just admire you
and let you have your fill
of flitting here and flitting there,
gathering up your daily fare
of nectars from the flowers bright,
from early morning until night.
Butterflies, beautiful butterflies,
with so many colors rare,
it hurts my heart when one dies,
Yet, does anyone truly care?
For butterflies, butterflies,
you represent new birth,
from chrysalis until you die,
you beautify the earth.
thank you, lovely butterflies.

Next time you see a butterfly think of the peace and happiness…..may His wings take you to a whole new world.

Trying to live in a stressed-out world.

Open your heart and soul to find beauty. Look at all the gorgeous things around you. Do you ever wonder how things really “came to be”? I want to slow life down and capture true beauty. Seasons come and go. Things change. I want to remember the good and the beautiful.Simply know that ALL of this was created to please and make our lives happy. “Take time to smell all of the flowers!”


A light rain to water all the pretty flowers. God takes care of His own.


The many different colors of this orange Flower.


And at the end of the day more beauty.



Be Blessed by all that God has created for us.
