The Evolution of a Butterfly

Loosely Based On

You can’t trap butterflies in glass jars.

They were created to be free,

To fly whether the wind took them,

Not to be confined and scrutinized.

You might be able to get them

To rest in your open palm for a while

{Or to flutter around in your belly)

But invariably they will move on.

God designed their path so they were

Exactly where they needed to be:

Whether captured in a cocoon or

Bringing joy to a hopeless person.

We should not disrupt God’s plan,

Just be grateful when he allows

These marvelous creatures to grace

Your life, even if only for a season.
