Starting as an egg imbedded into a woman and eventually birthed, my life as a lowly caterpillar begins. Earthbound and lowly, my station seems fixed. The offspring of reproduction, a life cycle of growth, change and maturity ensues.
My purpose of not remaining as a caterpillar is revealed, but rather a hidden goal of a life of transformation! After a life cycle comes to a completion another cycle begins. A constant state of rebirthing begins. The death of that final cycle ushers us into a cocoon of rebirth.
In death a grave is a temporary cessation, a metaphormic chrysalis. For as we eagerly await to hear the call of Christ our station becomes forever changed. We emerge no longer earthbound but rather transformed into a new creature. A creature of a different realm. No longer bound as Earth dwelling creatures alone, but of Heavenly design. Soaring into the Heavenly’s for a new home to sustain our new life!
Then this caterpillar named Denis is forever changed! Becoming a butterfly named Tender Reed!
