I was working in my garden today weeding and plucking out the new growth. As I worked throughout the afternoon, I was amazed that I had three beautiful white butterflies frolicking around me all the time that I was out there. I have always felt the presence of my mother with butterflies, and that continues to this day. And seeing the way these fluttering friends danced around with one another in the sunshine gave me a serene joyful peace. It is days like this and appreciating the true heartfelt lift of joy that I am able to attain when thinking of deeply missed loved ones that makes days like this full of God’s grace. I know that it is with this joyful peace that they will forever be a part of my life.
I recently felt the beauty of a song that lifted my soul entitled “Bittersweet” by the Zac Brown Band. And upon hearing the story behind the song, I was captured once again by God’s blessings. I truly had every opportunity possible to let my parents know the love I had for them, and that love was reciprocated thoroughly. Thanks to you God.
Mom and Dad you will forever be in my hearts. Thank you for the butterflies today, and lifting my heart with joy. As always, you are amazing!
