The Cocoon Papillion's Essence Birth to Life Prepared By varouj Author Unknown Music: Hymnscapes Vol 4 “I Need Thee”
The caterpillar undergoes a metamorphosis. This means that the creature that started out as an egg develops as something completely different when entering adulthood. Life Cycle of the Butterfly
The butterfly (belongs to the Lepidoptera class) will lay eggs that come in many different shapes. These eggs are white or light green and become darker during development. Life Cycle of the Butterfly Stage 1
The egg will then hatch resulting in the caterpillar (also known as the larvae). At this time, caterpillars eat their egg shells and surrounding plants. The caterpillar grows at a rapid rate. Life Cycle of the Butterfly Stage 2
This change occurs when the caterpillar is ready to become a pupa (also known as a chrysalis). At this point, the caterpillar changes color and its body contracts. Its skin splits revealing the pupa. The caterpillars tissues become fluid and begin forming organs of the adult butterfly. Life Cycle of the Butterfly Stage 3
Once the changes from stage 3 are complete, the butterfly struggles out of its shell. It must rest until its wings have hardened, dried and expanded. This is adulthood. At this point butterflies only live a few days or weeks. Life Cycle of the Butterfly Stage 4
A man found the cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. Once Upon A Time
It appeared as if the butterfly had gotten as far as it could and could go no further. So the man decided to help the butterfly.
He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened!
In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.
What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as we could have been. And we could never fly. So have a nice day... and struggle a little!
I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems and the ability to solve.
I asked for prosperity and God gave me a brain and power to work.
I asked for courage and God gave me danger to overcome.
I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities.
The Beauty of life is that I received nothing I wanted and I received everything I needed.
To the mind that is still the whole universe surrenders ****** Let the beauty of nature leave footprints on your heart ****** Let wisdom of nature speak to your heart ****** Something's in life have to be Observed before intervened
Natures Affection at its Peak If Birds & Bees do it Why not the Papillion
