Butterflies, mosquitoes and ticks

  1. Andie,
    This is such a brilliant post. I love the analogies. Very insightful. I like the last question: “Which one am I?” Something to meditate on today.

    Thanks for stopping by. I’m glad you’re enjoying the mini-stories 🙂


  2. I was really curious when I first read the title of this post to see what it would be about…and wow, it is amazing. So true… I am thankful for the butterflies in my life and will be more conscious that I don’t act like a mosquito! hehe. Thought-provoking last question.

  3. A rolled-up newspaper soon sorts out mosquitoes, and I’m sure there’s a powder or spray to deal with ticks.

    I don’t mind butterflies, although I find them somewhat flighty with little depth or insight.

    I prefer bees. They may sting but you can always benefit from their industrious lifestyle.

    I think I’m a bumblebee because I can still fly despite my weight!

    1. Oh Victor, I love your sense of humor. You are a bee because you are always buzzing with great wisdom and your sweet ‘honey’ nourishes us all.

  4. I just have one question…how do you think of these things! People as bugs, it’s so true!…now I am thinking of some. How about a slug. My Mom said she was trying to get rid of one the other day and the residue from one slug got everywhere! She said she’d never do that again! Lori 🙂

  5. Oh Lori, you wouldn’t want to see what is in my head! Hum…slugs, didn’t think of them. Well, at least they don’t bite…but they are really yucky – I guess those are the friends that are hameless but they never seem to leave, how’s that?

  6. Very good question, Andie.
    I’d have to ask the people in my life.

    What do you think of dragonflies?

    Thank you, this has been such a good reflection.

  7. Ah, good question. Problem is we don’t often know how others perceive us. And they are often reluctant to tell us. But the Holy Spirit is not reluctant. Ask Him and He will show us.

  8. Butterflies are my talisman in life; they hold great significance for me as I have begun recovering from a serious family betrayal.

    In their life-cycle they represent the Trinity – from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly.

  9. Oh, this is wonderful! What insight God gives you, Andie ! I will never look at these three little creatures the same! And you really gave me something to think about: which one am I . . .
