Eternity in Our Hearts

DSC_0106edIt is the time for the beautiful Swallowtail butterfly, and the Monarch butterfly. Their beauty tugs at the knowledge of every human that there is an eternity. It is God who puts eternity in our hearts. But, we do not need all the answers. God has them, and He is trustworthy. Consider the words of King Solomon.

“Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

Danaus plexippus

Danaus plexippus, the milkweed butterfly.

This resident caterpillar…

from one egg of over 300 eggs; after a 3-5 day development becomes…

a summer weather caterpillar for 9-14 days with 5 stages of growth called instars.

On the 5th instar…

a pupa forms, then in 8-15 days an inexplicable wonder …

millions of late summer adults become international travelers.

Unfathomable mystery packaged by God.
