ENCOURAGEMENT TO NEW LIFE - I can't think of any other aspect of Nature that speaks to me more of the newness of life than butterflies, Nature's little miracles.  My fondness for butterflies increases with each passing year.  And when I see a fluttering butterfly, such as the Spicebush Swallowtail, I go chasing after it, trying to capture its beauty forever.  Not surprising, the butterfly was an early Christian symbol of new life. "Live a new life," or "walk in the newness of life" is an encouragement we see in the writings of the Apostle Paul, the person who left us more books in the Christian Scriptures than any other writer.    Butterflies inspire me to strive to attain and share with the world the potential beauty residing within.
