About 2 miles into my run yesterday morning, as I was praying for a friend, I looked down and saw a butterfly on the side of the road. It was so covered with mud that I almost missed it. I thought it was dead but when I picked it up, it moved a leg. As I gently put it in my hand, it “righted itself” and slowly all four of its little legs began to move and it grabbed my finger and held on.
I turned around to run back home, wondering if I should stop by a stream and wash the mud off? Put it down?…the intutitve answer to both was no. So I kept running. Its wings were closed up tight, but as soon as I ran into the sunlight, it thrust them wide open to reveal a deep red tone with blue dots. Resting in the sunlight, with its wings wide open, they begin to dry out and some of the mud flaked off in my hand.
When I got home, I put it on our open porch, but it fluttered to the lilac bush and was out of sight.
I’m not sure how much longer it will be on this earth plane, but it had a message. This morning, I got the knowing that this message wasn’t only for me or my friend, it was for “us”….
“Even though you may have felt ‘stuck in the mud’, something is about to move you…something you could never have imagined…don’t push, don’t pull, don’t fight it. Just step into the Light and let things unfold!” message from the butterfly
Have you been fighting and struggling with something that seems impossible? How about taking this weekend to “hold onto the invisible hand of Love”…let it carry you for a while, let it hold you,….you don’t need to know what this “thing” is, you don’t need to understand it to be helped. Just relax into It and see what happens!
