Today I was blessed with an opportunity to spend a good bit of time immersed in God's kingdom. The monarch butterflies are migrating through my area on their way to Mexico. I normally focus on the flowers in my yard, but today I looked past the flowers, to the world they host.
I have to thank my middle-daughter "M" for teaching me to stop killing the flower-eating caterpillars so they can fulfill their purpose. Caterpillars become butterflies, and butterflies pollinate the flowers.
The zinnias can go to seed now, given how much cross-pollination took place today. Not only did we host a host of butterflies, but we sponsored other aspects of the cycle of life:
. Spiders, bees and others
I am in awe when I think about the power and the beauty. Praise God.
