NOT BORN TO DIE

*PLEASE WATCH THE YOU TUBE, FIRST*

Oh beautiful Swallowtail, I have seen you brand new, with shiny new wings, so happy to show off for me!
Oh Swallowtail, with torn wings, and tails ….. “I” don’t know HOW you still fly! But you do! I am taking pictures of the “new”, pretty butterfly and wish you would go away…
“Oh Lord, forgive me…. for my attitude”… For the one who has been through the battle and is still flying is the one who really deserves the glory! But the one who is shiny and new is the one who gets the attention. Lord, we humans are peculiar creatures. We look at the outside and NOT the inside. What is WRONG with us? Could it be that we were born with a nature that is sinful, and only wants to look at the beautiful? And shuns the imperfect and would rather crush them, get them out of the way, as their eyes would rather only gaze upon the “perfect”. Not many would care if the tattered and torn butterfly was crushed under foot…gone.
But what does God think about “human” life? The two butterfly’s made me think of the way “we” as humans “think”….. Oh God, teach us that ALL life is so precious and Your love so great, that YOU gave up Your own Son for us! LIFE, from the smallest embryo, to the oldest among us…. we are the BEST of God’s creations, and HE loves us, when no one else does, no matter how tattered and torn or dirty. BUT…. we are all MADE beautiful, when we let God re-make us in His image… Every human life, even as small as an embryo, is a great gift and blessing!
THE PERFECT BUTTERFLY-OR IT SEEMS SO? THIS IS THE TATTERED BUTTERFLY THAT I ‘FIXED’ WITH PHOTOSHOP~GOD MAKES US ALL NEW, WHEN WE EXCEPT CHRIST AS SAVIOR…HE CAN NOT SEE ONE IMPERFECTION IN US!!
