Monarch Miracle

If you've ever watched the transformation of a tiny dot on a milkweed leaf, go through a number of stages, and finally turn into a gorgeous butterfly, then you've seen one of God's miracles! Every year we go out to milkweed patches in our area and bring in eggs and/or caterpillars just to watch this wonder. My sister, Elma took part in a monarch workshop and learned how to tag the butterflies before releasing them. This information is recorded and sent to the University of Kansas. Through a special program, Mexicans are paid $5 when they find a tagged monarch and report it to the University. They then, let the people who have released that particular butterfly know when it was spotted, who in turn tell the people who released the butterfly. Here, the picture tells the story:

















But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
Job 12:7-10
