While I cannot officially take credit for this photo, I was about a foot away when it was taken by my life-long friend, Stacy, who had my camera. Stacy captured this moment at the Butterfly exhibit at the Natural History Smithsonian Museum.
The beauty of a Mesa Moment for me is that seeing a picture of it or recalling it in our memories brings back the feeling of being in the moment and remembering why it was so important in the first place. This butterfly brings back the memory of Abby, sleeping peacefully snuggled against my chest in her sling. It brings back memories of Brady’s laughter and shrieks of joy as butterflies landed on our heads and clothes. It reminds me of the delicate beauty, vibrant colors, and gentle fluttering of the butterflies. All of this reminds me of how thankful I am that God created so many amazing things in our world!
Where have you paused to notice God in our world lately?
