Butterflies

It seems that alot of people have butterflies on their mind these days.  They are never far from mine, as I go by Butterfly and my blog is Butteratwork......I love butterflies and have  been known to watch them for long periods of time as they fly about looking for nurisment. ...They are fasinating to me....I sometimes feel like a butterfly going from one flower to another drinking in creative nurisment....Hence, the picture below....
.She is a butterfly girl...her eyes are open wide to see all God has prepared for her, her lips are small and closed as she is learning to be quite and listen to the music playing behind her written by the finger of the Almighty God.  Her head rests on a  butterfly representing the new life she is experiencing....She is a blessed woman even though she knows the road ahead is long and may be hard sometimes, she is confident that God has and will  provide all she needs for the journey.  She is a new creature...

Hugs and Blessings,
Butterfly

  10. Hi Nancy, sorry I did not get back to you.
    It was a nice trip. The tour was 21/2 hours. Too long on a cold day. We still have a couple of colleges to look at, I think Meg thinks WC is a bit too big. She is used to much smaller schools. I think she is feeling a bit overwhelmed with the whole college thing. It's exciting and scary at the same time.

    We did find another nice Bed and Breakfast.
    The River Lodge - they served a wonderful breakfast.
