Nice story. Thank you Pixie!

But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

Thanks for the reminder. But it sure does suck when you are struggling...

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Pxie, that was a waking-up story. I am sure if the man had known what had happened, he would have felt awful. I hope he never knew. It is true though the moral of the story.....we sometimes just need to struggle a little to get where we need to be. That is a good lesson. THANKS for posting

The Story of the Butterfly

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly.
One day a small opening appeared.
He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to squeeze its body through the tiny hole.
Then it stopped, as if it couldn't go further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly.
He took a pair of scissors andn snipped off the remaining bits of cocoon.
The butterfly emerged easily but it had a swollen body and shriveled wings.

The man continued to watch it,
expecting that any minute the wings would enlarge and expand enough to support the body.
Neither happened!
In fact the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around.
It was never able to fly.

What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand:
The restricting cocoon and the struggle required by the butterfly to get through the opening
was a way of forcing the fluid from the bodyninto the wings so that it would be ready for flight once that was achieved.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives.
Going through life with no obstacles would cripple us.
We will not be as strong as we could have been and we would never fly.
