Weekly Photo Challenge: Transition, from Chrysalis to Butterfly

Transition

Early One morning I found this empty chrysalis with the butterfly hanging motionless next to it. The butterfly had just made the transition from being a chrysalis to a butterfly and was waiting for its wings to dry before flying away.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Victory of a Life

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Victory.”

In January this year my first grandson was born  a very sick little boy. He spent 3 weeks in NICU during which time he stopped breathing and had to be put on a ventilator.  Now 10 months later he is a healthy little boy and each smile is a victory of life and a testimony to the goodness of God. I took this picture early one morning while on a weekend visit in Mpumalanga, South Africa. His smile says it all. His life is victorious and God’s creation is majestic.
