"...and so become a butterfly"

saturday simplicity
notes from maggie's farm

“I tell of hearts and souls and dances...
Butterflies and second chances;
Desperate ones and dreamers bound,
Seeking life from barren ground,
Who suffer on in earthly fate
The bitter pain of agony hate,
Might but they stop and here forgive
Would break the bonds to breathe and live
And find that God in goodness brings
A chance for change, the hope of wings
To rest in Him, and self to die
And so become a butterfly.”
Karen Kingsbury, Oceans Apart


  1. Lovely. Love seeing the butterflies in my garden. I watch the Gulf fritillaries lay their eggs on my passionflower vines every morning. Such a delight to see them.

  2. Isn't it glorious to know that they will be swarming all around since you've got that passionflower vine for me to 'birth upon'?


Thank you for visiting Notes from Maggie's Farm. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
