I took this picture in August 2010, on the Verity campus in Indianapolis, Indiana. Needing a quiet moment at the tail end of a whirlwind weekend, I stepped outside to one of my favorite spots on campus--the patch of wildflowers behind the barn. Ahh, my weary soul was nourished observing the beauty and life in God's creation.
I am challenged by the brief lifespan of a butterfly. In its short life it is and it does what God designed. Its life is so fleeting as to be measured in moments—what beautiful moments they are, basking in the fullness of God's eternal goodness.
