Worms & Butterflies

The other day when down on the farm I came across this worm nest...

There were several stages of worms IN it...

...and some on their way OUT of it!

These crawly creatures are a bit disgusting to me,
whether they are called caterpillars or worms!

I'm not sure what this moth looked like when it was a caterpillar!

This past winter, was it possibly hybernating in a cocoon like this?!!

It's hard to imagine that these beautiful butterflies were once caterpillars!

And it's even harder for me to believe that their beautiful wings
were actually fashioned by God with Him possibly using
their own body excrements as building materials! 
(To learn more about butterflies, click on this link.)

However, God says in His Holy Word,
He gives "Beauty for ashes",
"Joy for mourning",
and "Praise" instead of despair!
Isaiah 61:3

He also says that
"With God all things are possible!"
Mark 10:27

So, I guess He can make those butterfly wings out of anything He wants to!

it is really hard to believe that out of a caterpiller....comes a beautiful gentle butterfly. And it's hard to believe that He can take a broken life and change it to something beautiful. I'm so grateful He can....and does.
