One Amazing Spectacular Day – Reprise

With Halloween in the rear-view mirror and the first of November on our doorstep, a season of change is here. Next week the clocks will fall back, the leaves have already changed their color and the ground in the mountains where we once lived, will soon slip on a shimmery dress of frost. Though I posted this poem once before, I thought it might be a good reminder that change is part of God’s plan (which I usually hate it at first!). We get to choose whether to hope or worry about the changes that are upon us, but hope is so much better, because our Good – Good Heavenly Father always knows what is best for His children. Hope you also enjoy Good-Good Father which is one of my favorite Chris Tomlin songs.

Some caterpillars pitch their tents
In the tops of cherry trees
Weaving a home for all to share
To feast on its sweet green leaves

Still others decide they will journey alone
Tree to tree in the forest instead
Traveling free along with the breeze
As they swing on their silken threads

And then there are green ones who don’t weave at all
In my garden they just show up to munch
The green leaves of cabbage or my broccoli plants
They relax while enjoying their lunch!

Yet by design one by one they will change
In God’s secret and intricate way
Into Luna Moths or Red Admirals
One amazing spectacular day!

how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

  1. I used to think of caterpillars as creatures that gradually changed in their cocoons, the way tadpoles turn to frogs. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I learned they liquify in there! The butterflies are then created from scratch – not a transformed creature, but a totally new creature! What a perfect symbol of the Christian faith! (I Corinthians 5:17)
