View of the Day: Of Flowers and Butterflies

A Handmaid News

They say April showers bring May flowers but in East Tennessee we have found that flowers need little encouragement to get going. Here is an April photo of “late” flowers. The butterfly does not think the flowers weren’t on time. They are perfect for his needs at that minute. Butterflies are beautiful creatures for two reasons: their markings of course, but also their capability to be absorbed in the present moment. They are concerned only with the flower in front of them and ‘float’ on God’s Providence for everything they need. No one has ever seen an anxious or worried butterfly fretting that this blossom will be the very last one. Enjoy the beauty and trust God!
