look what came home with these wild flowers?!

theses pics are from September 8, 2010

"God designed this world in such a way that it serves as a constant reminder of his presence, his character, and his glory." Tripp

 the "cocoon" of resurrection...

the butterfly practiced opening and closing it's wings.
it fluttered a bit.
i tried to encourage it onto the branch
in order to release it to the great outdoors.
each time it returned to the same
dusty/cobwebbed spot on the windowsill
it soared
dropped down
and fluttered
One day! 

Romans 8:22-23

 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.


  1. It always amazes me to see a caterpillar develop and finally soar away as a butterfly. Every year in first we get to see this as they lay their eggs in a mulberry plant right outside our door. Yes, it is such a picture of death and the resurrection!

  2. Wow! Those are amazing photos! This is a great representation of what is to come. Thank you!

  3. Truly amazing! I have never watched a cocoon develope from a caterpillar to a butterfly that close up! That is so cool. God is truly amazing. His creation never ceases to amaze me. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for your comment. I have really enjoyed looking a reading this post today.

  4. First time to visit your blog. It is very pretty. I really enjoyed this post and pictures were awesome! I have never seen anything like this!

  5. Beautiful photos.

    Last year we "grew" butterflies and it was so amazing to watch. Such a powerful image of Easter and new life.
