Butterfly Smiles

I visited my mom today. She lives 6 miles from me. As I drove home, I counted 37 butterflies dancing in the air. Each one, or two at a time, made me smile. Well, except for number 26. That one got too close to the front of my car. I guess I need to start breaking for butterflies. But, then I think people would get awful upset with me. Thankfully, no one was behind me on my leisurely drive home. :)

Last week, I saw a butterfly fluttering around my butterfly plant. I had camera in hand so started snapping photos of it. None turned out that good, but it flew to the porch where I stood, landed and I got this unusual photo. It was as if it was saying, "You looking at me?"

Devotionals

There are two devotionals I mainly use. #1 Baptist Bread. #2 is Days of Praise. Both are KJV. Days of Praise, we have been getting for many years, either through the mail or from our church. Baptist Bread we started getting in 2009. Our church supplies it to us.
Here is the devotion today from Baptist Bread.

ZERO

Zero


Sometimes I feel like a zero – a big empty nothing. I make so many mistakes and am constantly wavering in my decisions and goals I want to do for Thee. Dear God, how can You use someone as frail as me?

You knew me when I really was but nothing Before I was conceived – before my parents knew me. You loved me knowing just who and what I would be. Enough to send Jesus to die on the cross for me.

The shape of a zero can be easily made onto a heart. The place You let love flow through and joy impart. And because You are the Saviour of my soul, You give me wonderful peace that makes me whole.

Yes, Dear God, You made the world out of nothing, Looked at it, then liked and blessed everything. And You tell me if I give my life over to Thee, You will make something special out of me!
