Last week, when my sister and I were outside watching the kids play in the sand pile, we spotted a butterfly that was just emerging from its cocoon. It seemed like such an odd time for a butterfly to hatch. True, it's been a warm fall, but it still seemed late in the season.
I guess life is like that sometimes. It feels like God puts you in a situation at a strange or uncomfortable time in your life. But He gives us the strength to make it through.
I don't know what happened to that butterfly. I hope it survived.
