Flowers, butterflies, and fairies….

18 Mar

It is that time of year…..Slowly the flowers and leaves poke up out of the ground…attracting the caterpillars as they hatch from their eggs.  Soon the caterpillars will eat their fill and will spin a wonderful cocoon to slowly but surely morph into butterflies.

Hidden among the butterflies….if you look closely enough….you might find the fairies….

Winged wonders of imagination that say….the last life cycle is complete….we will play, dance, sing, and flutter….until time to hide again for the winter…..beginning all over again and again….in the spring.

“Red and Yellow and Pink and Green….Purple and Orange and Blue….
You can sing a rainbow”….and just maybe….see the fairies.

Masterpiece

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”  Ephesians 2: 11 NLT

God is using us…was, is, and will.  We should feel honored…when we complete something good.  Honored, but not proud.  We did not complete anything.  All we managed to accomplish, was listening to God inside of us and doing what He wanted us to do.  That song?  you did not sing it….that book?  you did not write it…that painting? you did not paint it…that strategy?  you did not develop it…

Sorry folks…Everything good is from God.  Be glad that He loves you…be happy that He used you…be proud that you listened.  That is your only contribution I am afraid…you heard and you listened.

Some folks are not real aware of this…they are not really aware of God …maybe they even deny God…it doesn’t change anything.  WE can not change, accomplish, make, prevent, develop, etc….anything.  “Every good thing is from above” James 1: 17….remember?
