The Yellow Butterfly

I have to share this "God thing" that happened to me. A few weeks ago when I was feeling really down and worried about our situation I was on the phone trying to get thru to FEMA, sitting outside at our friends house on the patio and in between being on hold and pushing more numbers I was talking to God and just telling Him I knew He had a plan and it'd all work out. I told Him I was frustrated, scared and just so worried, but I was asking for a sign and some peace & patience. This yellow butterfly kept flittering around, never landing but hanging around close. This happened the next few days in a row. Fast forward to finally finding a house and we were taking a break in moving in boxes and I went in the backyard and guess what I saw? Yep, a yellow butterfly! I just let out a little giggle and said outloud, "OK, you got me and thanks!" So the answer may not always be heard, but I knew He was there and just saying to me.... "I handled it, didn't I?" So keep a look out for a Yellow Butterfly, He may be hovering over you too!
Will update with more pics as soon as I find my camera!! Love you all!

How wonderful that he let you know and you realized and took it to heart. I'm so happy that you're finding peace again and getting settled into you new home. Many hugs!!

Right now I am needing a little butterfly! I think your little yellow butterfuly experience was a God "thing"! I believe He does show himself to us in subtle ways! I'm so happy for you and can't wait until I see some more pictures of your new "God provided" home!
