Fly like a Butterfly


Sometimes it would be great to just be like a butterfly....flying freely with the gentle wind... enjoying the fresh air and blue sky...the 'pureness' of just being. Other times you feel like you just want to climb back into the cocoon...the safe place that is warm...and just escape the world... 

The world is full of people that would try to touch your delicate wings...to prevent you from flying... or the sky becomes grey, the wind too strong...but that doesn't stop the butterfly from being who it was created to be. Sometimes we need to crawl back into our cocoons...to recuperate, get our 'groove' back... but we must only stay there a short time...we cannot escape to the cocoon and stop living. The cocoon is needed to help us regain our strength, but we need to be ready to burst out again and not be afraid to spread our wings...to rekindle our friendship with the sky and natural surroundings. 

Life is a journey...the cocoon is part of the journey, but not the destination. 
The sky doesn't always stay blue, the wind is not always gentle, but it doesn't stay the same.
When the wind is gentle and your heart is joyful, embrace this season. For when the breeze becomes strong, and the clouds grey...you can be assured that this will change...there is a promise the gentle wind will return in due time :) There is always a calm after the storm :)

For there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens... (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
