Black Swallowtail Butterfly
The nights are cooling off a little, but it is still warm during the day. So the butterflies aren’t completely gone yet.
Moth on Duranta
Neither are the moths (I don’t know what kind this one is, but it is neat looking). And the closeup of the Duranta does show the blue color well.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 ESV
And then, everything else beautiful.
Joe Pye Weed with Butterflies
I’ve focused on blessings from God the last couple of weeks, and today I thought it worthwhile to continue. Here’s a photo of 4 large (and beautiful) butterflies on the Joe Pye Weed plant in one of the flower beds out back. God’s creation just amazes me constantly.
“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.” Psalms 100 ESV
Butterfly Net Whimsy
Sometimes you just go with the flow (sorry for the cliche’). I received an email last week that had this metal butterfly net and butterflies on a clearance sale. I couldn’t pass it up. Now it’s a bit of whimsy in the garden.
You might say it’s delightful!
“Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms 37:4
This is definitely a verse that requires both parts be considered – If you delight in the Lord, your desires will be what He delights in.
