It was a windy afternoon coupled with an overcast sky and cool temperatures.
I decided that it would be a perfect time to visit a lakeside park in a nearby city.
As my husband and I walked around, we saw a bird on the grass past the wooden bridge we were standing on.
Having some stale biscuit bread in a bag, he threw a small piece into the grass below.
A different bird saw the morsel and eagerly ran up.
This commotion caused a bit of a stir in the long blades of grass, sufficient enough to flush some colorful butterflies out and into the open.
As they settled back down, once again lighting and being still, I took a few photographs of them.
Not knowing what type of butterfly I had seen, I did a bit of research.
It seems that I was watching some White Peacock butterflies.
Delicate and fragile, they truly were captivating to behold.
I’m not sure why butterflies remind us of a sense of freedom and serenity.
Perhaps their playful sprint from one place to another along with their carefree ability to do so is what does it.
In another way, their vulnerability might bring a sense of trust or confidence to mind.
1 Corinthians 1:9 reads,
“God faithfully keeps His promises. He called you to be partners with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”
We must trust God to keep His promises.
We must be confident in who He is and in His love for us.
