My comment:

I am a sucker for butterflies.  Someday I will explain why.  I think they are an amazing creation.  How can something like a butterfly survive in such a harsh world?  Maybe it’s for God’s glory. Maybe it’s to show that gentleness is an attribute that God appreciates. After all, gentleness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. THIS ARTICLE is another evidence of an everlasting Creator.

    I think butterflies are simply magnificent and as you have pointed out a gentleness that speaks of our creator’s infinite ability. “What a mighty God we serve” comes to mind.

    From a slow crawling creature to a magnificent winged symbol of beauty in flight, that displays the infinite creativity of a loving creator. Butterflies live in their own world fully equipped to reproduce what the Creator has made as eye candy for us.

      Well stated, Manny.

      They are, indeed, God’s eye candy. They have been the “theme” for this blog all along, I think even when it was a news blog. I’m glad you enjoyed the article.

      “What a mighty God we serve.”

      I hope you and your family are having a great weekend.

  2. It’s for God’s glory for sure… Interesting how God shares the attributes of His character with us…
