The Newness of Butterflies

The newness of butterflies who bring offerings

of newness of  life to the Risen King

Who transforms us and forms us afresh and anew

and brings to new dawning the fragrance of youth

wrapped around us in splendor, fresh vigor and vim –

like cloaked wings dries strong in the image of Him

Who with tenderness, meaning, purpose, and power

calls us forth like the butterfly unto the flower

to be fed and adorn, fly free and spread seed,

and He Who commands us will meet every need

through our season of life and still through to the end

’til we’re caught up to greet Him in His Mighty Wind

with new lives all around us below and above,

to the Throne that surrounds us with pervading LOVE

where sits God Most High, Who also looks low

upon the winged beauties wherever they go.

Praise to Holy Father and to Holy Son

and to Holy Spirit, the Three Who are One;

praise He Who leads butterflies forth from cocoon,

and died for our new life, and IS coming soon!
