The Painted Lady

We bought butterfly caterpillars for our daughter to observe as they grew and made chrysalis, then miraculously emerging as butterflies. It makes one consider the incredible process of it all. I have also thought about butterflies themselves. Why would God make an insect that transforms so and becomes something so beautiful that flutters about on the wind pollinating our food sources? The whole mysterious unveiling leaves me in awe. They are all tiny masterpieces floating around in the sunshine. They have purpose and beauty, filling in a facet of our world that is not filled by anything else. Why would God make something like a delicate butterfly? There are many reasons, most of which I am sure I am not educated enough to list. But the reason that touches my soul is that God knew we…that I would be enthralled by such a creature. That I would find joy in their existence. That alone would have been enough.
