A Tattered Christmas
Isn't that how God works? Working from the inside out?
You might be asking why am I posting a picture of a butterfly during the Christmas season? Shouldn't be a how to decorate your house for Christmas or a cutesy DIY craft?
At Christmas time you see the commercials of the perfect house, perfect tree, perfect meal, perfect kids, perfect family. Sometimes it can make a girl a little crazy. It looks so easy, doesn't?
I think it makes us sometimes feel a little let down if it's not like the commercial. My life isn't a commercial.
I have a confession. My tree isn't up! I know 2 weeks before Christmas? What am I thinkin'! I don't even have any holiday decor out yet. I just know I'm damaging my 10 year old son for life.
This butterfly reminds me of God's love for me. God was winking at me that day I came upon this flock of beauties. He knows me and He knows you. This Christmas season I want to remember His love for me and that my tattered life is okay with Him.
Through all the tattered things that we see this time of year, I hope we can see that sweet baby laying in manger and knowing He was born for each of us.
Sending you much love,
