When God created heaven and earth and all things contained therein, I think he really took his time when it came time to make the butterfly.
- Their ability to fly enables them to spread.
- They are extremely adaptable to their environment and climatic conditions.
- Their external skeleton provides a kind of armor of self-protection.
- Their small size keeps their demands meager and accessible.
- The ability to delay fertilization until conditions are beneficial enables their species to survive.
- They undergo multiple changes/metamorphosis to facilitate and carry on life.
So every time I see a butterfly, especially a butterfly in flight, I think of God throwing down to us, a butterfly kiss from on high. A nice gentle reminder that he sees us, and to keep on keeping on. I am reminded mostly of the monarch butterfly who flies superbly against the wind.
