Scrapbook Saturday: All Things Beautiful
Have you ever had a precious encounter with nature that kind of took your breath away? The star of this month's "Scrapbook Saturday" layout by Melissa Craig was, for her, one of those experiences! Melisssa found this gorgeous dragonfly just clinging to the antenna of her son's car. She pulled her camera out, and says that the dragonfly didn't even flinch as she stopped to take the pictures!
Dragonflies and butterflies and the like always seem to me to be little signs of God's grace in our lives. For that reason, I find it extra special that Melissa chose to accent these photos not with an image, but a Scripture verse. "He hath made every thing beautiful in his time...." (Ecclesiastes 3:11) Understanding God's timing can be such a tricky thing -- whether it's waiting on it, or recognizing it. It's definitely something I think all of us humans struggle with! But seeing little beauties like dragonflies and butterflies in the world helps to remind us how God is always working, and we just need to be patient and wait on Him!
You can find this Scripture verse in our "Caity Caterpillar" digi set. Enjoy your weekend, and remember to stop and notice the little blessings along the way.
