We think of the butterfly sometimes as a simple thing in life. But actually, if you really think about it, it's simply a miracle.
Every summer, one of our favorite things to do is find monarch butterfly caterpillars on those cool looking milk-weed plants. We bring them home, put them in a jar w/ some leaves, and wait for it to cocoon. It usually happens over night, or when we're not watching. But when it hatches, it's just so amazing. The kids love this, and I love that I can share this with them.
I love to teach them and show them about all the wonderful things our Lord has created for us here on this earth of His. I'm thankful for these simple yet complex things He lets us experience. What an awesome creator we serve.
