My blog header is the first image up on Google images. There are a zillion images below it - lots of Good Things quotes, etc. but a few of my photos, including the first photo of the butterfly from my Tuesday post from this week.
Scrolling down, there was another butterfly photo of mine. This one above, of a swallowtail - taken in the courtyard of my late mother's assisted living home in Thomasville, Georgia in 2011. I loved that she had this for a view every time she left her suite.
- As a side note - I'm just wondering if there is Google job in which someone looks at photos all day and decides which ones are worthy of Google images.
- Anyway - it's been a butterfly kind of week. My friend Whitney, who is a Presbyterian minister in Cameron, North Carolina, and is the very one who inspired this blog, posted a photo of a butterfly this week on facebook. (Her blog Glimpses of Grace is on my blogroll.) She added:
"This slightly-battered brown and blue butterfly is often seen flitting around my car when I arrive or leave my house. I always feel butterflies signify resurrection and new life, and have had the honor of being present when many faithful people have made that holy journey from this life to the next. I often wonder who is with me in the moment I see this butterfly. The lines between heaven and earth are much more delicate than we often think. As delicate as a butterfly, perhaps."
So her facebook message gave me a peaceful feeling when I read it. And there it was again just now - a butterfly, in Google images, that my mom and I stood and looked at.
A little rambling today. :) I hope your weekend is peaceful and good!
