I love living in the country. It is so nice to live in an area where you can look out over the land that God created and see the beauty in just the tiniest things. The other day a friend of ours stopped in the market after a play date with another friend of ours. She brought in her two little boys and they had a catapillar that they had found that day and decided to take it home and watch it turn into a butterfly. This little creature was a beautiful ugly little thing. I was never fond of wiggly things. It was white and black stripped with some yellow on it. It was a hungry little bugger as it had already eaten quite a bit of the leaves that they had in the cup with it. It is amazing how God had designed this ugly little creature to turn into a beautiful butterfly. We are like that in His eyes. We are not all created alike, but we are created in God's image. He has designed us to grow from an ugly sinful person to a beautiful born again creature in His eyes. Lately, my faith has wavered, but God always pulls me back to Him. Are you the catapillar or are you the butterfly? God is there to help you turn from the catapillar to the butterfly.
