I love capturing butterflies with the net of my camera. My secret is catching them in morning light before they are warm enough to fly. For the night chill has stripped them of strength. They spread their wings gathering every ray savoring the renewing flow of power. In those moments of trembling revelry knowing they are only seconds away from flight I take my opportunity. And like this butterfly I love basking in the Word knowing the Holy Spirit will strengthen me, knowing that in this waiting God is giving me wings to rise and fly into the day.
