Red-Spotted Purple Butterfly

Found this Red-Spotted Purple butterfly on the trail the other day. It's always a surprise when I see the colorful butterflies on the trail. As I hake I get used to the common sites I see. But I'm always looking for something unusual.

The adult butterflies fly from may to October. The caterpillars lower their water content from around 80% to 50% to keep from freezing in the winter.

Never give up looking for God to do things in your life. Though life might look like winter and becomes hard, God wants to bring you into His will to ministry as He has made you.

Ephesians 2:10 "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them."

Father let me see and understand the instrument you have made me to be for Your Kingdom.


  1. Scott this is beautiful. Question: do you still have your photos of Mt. St. Helens when it erupted? It is another point of reference to God's goodness as he takes a painful situation and it causes life. I had a client as me "Did you know there are benefits to hurricanes". A great teaching point for me.

  2. Yes I think I do in a box somewhere. Digital photos are much better IF IF I back them up. I have lost some photos because I did not back them up.

    And what are the benefits to hurricanes?
