I wrote this series a while back. It was a profound experience along my journey to a place called healed. I pray it blesses you in your season of change.
Since I was a child, I have been intrigued by the butterfly. So delicate, beautiful, and fluttering along to their own song on the wind.
My children and I love to watch them come and go each year. The kids are assuredly hunting down the caterpillars, and then chasing the butterflies, from flower to flower.
Their life cycle is even more interesting, and the butterflysite.com has so graciously allowed us to share their article on it here.
Each year the preschools, my children have attended, get live butterfly kits and teach the children about the changes a caterpillar goes through to become a butterfly. When they are released it is so thrilling to watch.
As I meditated on change and the butterfly, I thought, I never heard screaming from a chrysalis. It was a profound thought to me, so I decided to devote my posts for the next so many days to changes in our lives as they relate to the life cycle of the butterfly.
1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV
How about you join me. Have you ever heard screaming from a chrysalis?
So thrilled you stopped by, and I love to hear your thoughts regarding what you have read. Leave a comment below, it will make me smile:)
Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others. I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile. Blessings to you and yours, <3Melinda
