Butterflies and New LIFE

Butterflies are very meaningful and special to me. Not only do lilies (obviously) remind me of my little girl, but butterflies remind me so much of both my babies. I love anything and everything to do with roses, lilies, and butterflies. :)

Butterflies symbolize that I am born again in Christ. He makes all things new. He makes all things beautiful, in His time.

"He has made everything beautiful in its time..." ~Ecclesiastes 3:11

My old man is dead, and my new man is alive in Christ. Lily and Luke were a part of that transformation. When Jesus brought beauty from ashes and light from the midst of my darkness...just as a caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly. He redeemed me and made me a new creation, by His blood.

Butterflies now hold special significance in my life. They also remind me that my babies have LIFE in Jesus and will be eternally safe in His loving arms. From my loving womb to His loving arms. Their bodies are whole and complete. They are new creations. Perfect. Always.

The following is a quote from the Duggars, written about their daughter, Jubilee Shalom, who was born into Heaven in the fall of 2011. It brings me peace when I think of my own sweet babies, born into Heaven.

"She is the quiet, gentle, and peaceful picture of new 
LIFE leaving the cocoon, taking flight to Heaven."

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new!" ~2 Corinthians 5:17

Carly Marie created this gorgeous new "faery butterfly" (photo below) on Christian's Beach in Australia. When I saw it, my heart smiled. How perfect for me and my sweet Lily and Luke...butterflies, a lily and roses all together...us three, together forever. I wrote Carly, telling her why it was extra special to me and asked when it would be available to purchase and she sent me one for free! Thank you so much for being so sweet and thoughtful, Carly! :) I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who adored her GORGEOUS work...I just can't get enough of it! I am so thankful and appreciative of all that she does for the babyloss community. 

How do you like my new blog header? I LOOOVE it. Every now and again I get a little bored with my layout and need to freshen things up a bit. It couldn't be more beautiful or more perfect!
