Learn to Fly Like a Butterfly.

The air is full of butterflies.

Flying so effortlessly in the sky.

No weight they carry, to hold them down.

Never a worry or a frown.

Butterfly in a meadow of purple flowers

And yet not long ago, they were...

A crawling little... caterpillar.

I wonder if they knew they'd be...

A beautifully butterfly, flying so free.

They do not question how long they'll live...

But are happy with each day God gives.

They trust that he will always provide,

whatever they need...to survive.

So learn to trust...and fly away,

from cares and worries of today.

See how beautiful life can be...

Rely on Jesus, to supply your needs.

By: Valerie Bauer Rousseau

Once there was a man that asked God
For a flower and a butterfly.

But instead God gave him

Caterpiller on plants

A cactus.....and a caterpillar

Cactus in the Desert

The man was sad, he didn't understand why his request
had been mistaken.

Then he thought: oh well God has so many people to care for...
And decided not to question.

After some time, the man went to check on what God had given him.

To his surprise, from the thorny and ugly cactus,
A beautiful flower had grown.

Beautiful Cactus Flower

And the unsightly caterpillar had been transformed into
The most beautiful butterfly.

Beautiful Butterfly

God does not always do things our way.
But he always does them right.

If you ask God for one thing
and receive another.
Trust,

You can be sure that he will always give you what you need
at the appropriate time.

Today's thorns are always tomorrows flowers.
