Butterflies – Portraits of Peace

I was sitting on our deck the other morning enjoying some sunshine and Sonshine before I began my tasks of the day. Soon a butterfly fluttered through the air and alighted upon the railing of the deck. It was a beautiful addition to my surroundings. As I peered at this lovely winged creature, I sensed the presence and peace of God. My mind then reflected upon some specific scriptures.

My Reader, join me today as I gaze upon the beauty of butterflies and ponder some peaceful promises.
