I saw a beautiful jade like Monarch chrysalis today.
So enthralled was I with this God-given,Christ
created, spirit sent gift of beauty that I just wanted
to stay a while to just take in the exquisite and quiet
beauty of our Creator’s pen. As I watched, I noticed
around the monarch’s Chrysalis was a crown of gold.
I would not have seen it had I not pressed in so close.
Such a tiny crown of gold I had never seen. This tiny gem
like crown was truly fit for the regal butterfly who was still
enrobed by their jade like enclosure. I waited and watched
until soon I saw a transformed, majestic Monarch appear,
a new creature indeed. From a humble worm like caterpillar
to the magnificent regal monarch of stunning transparent
stained glass amber beauty and delight. I stood in humble
awe at the sheer brilliance of our Creator,Savior, redeemer
and friend’s gem like creation of majesty. Beauty creating beauty.
For is this not just like our grace filled Savior taking all our sins
to the Cross, redeeming us, transforming us, making us new,
molding us into salvation filled new creations and giving
us His wings, His royal robes of righteousness, His forgiveness,
His love, His royal pedigree, and then calling us royal and delighted
in children of Jesus Christ the Lord, Monarch of all Monarchs, joint heirs,
future Kings and Queens of the King of Kings for all eternity! Should not the
reality of the abundant, ceaseless spiritual riches we have in Jesus Christ make
all of our hearts sing? I saw a beautiful jade like Monarch chrysalis today.
