new Life

How many times, did I walk past this butterfly chrysalis and never even noticed it hanging off the siding on our house? But when this butterfly hatched, I couldn't help but see her. So colorful....... so new! I had to run and get my camera, and then........ sat in awe.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17

I think I've now read all your posts and I'm assuming God has taken care of you, your family and home. To God be the glory.
Love you, AE

I forgot to tell you that while we were at my daughter's she told us there was a duck right outside of her kitchen window in a corner of the house and had been there since Easter break when my grandchildren were up there. They found her and discovered she was sitting on several eggs. Yesterday we noticed she was gone. The only thing left was have of a broken egg and one whole egg. My husband walked around her complex and tried to find the duck and her little ones (they have several ponds in her complex) but could never find them. I took a picture of her but I don't know how to get it off his phone. The little ones must have hatched Friday night sometime. AE
