Monarch Butterfly

The butterfly in its chrysalis. 
Shortly after it came out. Unfortunately, we missed the exciting event.

I wish I had thought to take a picture of it in its caterpillar stage. It is a beautiful representation of Christ taking us sinful, selfish, ugly creatures and making us beautiful in Him. I had to think of how the caterpillar had to "die to self" in order to become the beauty it did. Isn't that the way it is with us? Once we die to self, Christ can give us a beautiful spirit that can't be compared to outward beauty!
