The butterfly left me with a beautiful gift:Because the butterfly welcomed me,I felt like someone knew I needed this.And it reminded me yesterday,today and always, that when we seek with our heart,our longings will be answered...maybe not always in the way we expect, but in ways that we need. I needed this butterfly to come into my life: I needed to be reminded that I am never alone..and that when I really need an experience of grace it will be provided for me.

Zdjęcie jest świetne. Ma się wrażenie, że motyl zaraz odfrunie. Pozdrawiam.
The picture is great. You get the feeling that the butterfly will fly soon. Yours.

Thank you! Unfortunately these lovely butterflies don't stay long, and are easily disturbed.
This one was a little more cooperative.

Have a nice week end.:)
