It's up to you ...



Just thinking about beautiful butterflies with their painted wings. Sometimes their wings get tattered by the storms, color diminishes, fall to the ground, sadly left. Everyone pays attention to the beautiful ones, they get all the attention. No one photographs a butterfly laying damaged on the ground. Liken this to humanity and I fear its the same way with people. In fact, people are quick to cause pain and sorrow for others and especially pay no attention to what they consider 'less thans' or damaged goods. It's like taking a beautiful butterfly and wiping the color off their wings and stomping on them. Let's look to lift the spirits and offer grace to everyone we come in contact with so that their lustre can return and being loved and valued...know they are beautiful.

You are a beautiful butterfly. Just like the blue one in the photo. I agree we need to be kind to one another.

Great reminer, Karen. Thank you for encouraging us to look and the heart, like our Lord does. Outward appearance is what our western world is focused on.

Karna: Just had to come visit your site. It's been forever since I last spoke to you...so you probably don't remember me! However, I do enjoy reading your blog and hope that you are well.
