Until the Wright Brothers did what seemed impossible, people were unable to take to the skies. How far we have flown since then! And yet, no flying machine has ever matched the beauty of a butterfly, as it colours the air of a garden with its vibrantly designed wings.


The mystery and beauty of the butterfly lies beyond its ability to fly – it is in its miraculous transformation from a lowly caterpillar. Through its example you discover that the grounded and limited can soar to great heights, the bound and lifeless can be free and vibrant, and the dull and colourless can become beautiful and inspiring. Observe a butterfly, and let it inspire you.

    Butterflies r wonderful creatures. It’s an ugly-duckling-turn-beautiful-swan story. We’d nvr understand how those nasty caterpillars transform into these graceful creatures!

    The Lord works in mysterious ways with his creation, Kyh. πŸ˜‰

    They are beautiful – butterflies but unfortunately they have a very short lifespan. That can be inspiring too – in the sense that we can live our life to the fullest just like how the butterflies utilise their time on Earth flying around with beauty and grace.


    Well said, Kyels. πŸ˜‰

    Anyway your post title somehow reminds me of a movie title “Butterfly on a Wheel” LOL.

    A Blessed Christmas to you, Devi. πŸ™‚

    A friend rang me up & said that the title reminded him of a song “Butterfly kisses”. πŸ˜›
