Resurrection in Our Backyard


The fall monarch butterfly migration has arrived in north Texas.  I have consistently counted five at a time in the blue mist flowers.  On Wednesday of this week there were 10!

They remind me of a quote of unknown origin which came to me through Elisabeth Elliot's excellent book, A Path Through Suffering:

"What the caterpillar calls the end of the world,
the Creator calls a butterfly."

May all your endings, kind reader, become doorways to such beautiful new life.
