Wing Surgery… On a Butterfly

Just to remind ourselves that humans are made in the image of God, and therefor capable to love and mercy and grace, here’s somebody who repairs the broken wings of butterflies. I don’t know about you, but to me it seems a saintly thing to do. Good for the butterfly, and good for your soul.

Maybe if we can learn how to be kind to these humble creatures, we can learn how to be kind to one another.

  1. Our concern for God’s creatures is evidence of our love for God Himself. I love the thought at Proverbs 12:10 “A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal, But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel.”

    Butterflys reveal something about our Creator. Even though He is powerful and mighty, He appreciates fragile beauty enough to have created such beautiful living works of art.

    Lately, I’ve seen several little green caterpillars in my yard, roughly an inch long. One found its way into the house recently, and I put it back out in the yard, but took notice of the beauty and intricacy of this little creature. A tine horned lizard, no bigger around than a nickel, scampered by the other day while I was doing yard work, and once again, the intricacy of this tiny creature amazed me. Horned lizards seem to be pretty common in my yard, but they always amaze me. How often does one get to hold something that looks like a tiny Triceratops in their hand?

  2. Astonishing! What a wonderful thing to do! It wouldn’t have occurred to me such a thing was possible!
