“Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths, guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” Psalm 25: 4-5 NIV
While sitting on our family room sofa during my quiet time with the Lord, I saw His creatures flit, hum, and chirp about our floral garden. His creation dancing through our yard filled my heart with joy and praise for the Lord. I quickly wrapped up my journal notes to the Lord, telling Him I had to get my camera.
When I returned and stepped onto the patio, I was greeted by only silence. I supported my camera against a column holding up the patio roof. Camera on, lens focused, I waited. Nothing. Nothing but bees buzzed around our flaming orange Mexican Bird of Paradise.
Disappointed, I returned to the sofa and continued my prayer time with a devotion and meditation. As I concluded my prayer time, I glanced outside again and dancing through the Lantana was a beautiful butterfly. He was gracious enough to pose for me briefly as he flitted from one flower to another. His wings were constantly flapping. I was amazed the camera shutter was fast enough to catch the wings as if they were still.
In His time, the Lord brought His beautiful butterfly back into my yard to delight me that day. Praise Him!
