A Story of Courage and Love
By Dave Kuzminski

Walking down a path through some woods in Georgia in 1977, I saw a water puddle ahead on the path. I angled my direction to go around it on the part of the path that wasn't covered by water and mud. As I reached the puddle, I was suddenly attacked!

Yet I did nothing, for the attack was so unpredictable and from a source so totally unexpected. I was startled as well as unhurt, despite having been struck four or five times already. I backed up a foot and my attacker stopped attacking me. Instead of attacking more, he hovered in the air on graceful butterfly wings in front of me. Had I been hurt I wouldn't have found it amusing, but I was unhurt, it was funny, and I was laughing. After all, I was being attacked by a butterfly!





Having stopped laughing, I took a step forward. My attacker rushed me again. He rammed me in the chest with his head and body, striking me over and over again with all his might, still to no avail. For a second time, I retreated a step while my attacker relented in his attack.

Yet again, I tried moving forward. My attacker charged me again. I was rammed in the chest over and over again. I wasn't sure what to do, other than to retreat a third time. After all, it's just not everyday that one is attacked by a butterfly. This time, though, I stepped back several paces to look the situation over. My attacker moved back as well to land on the ground. That's when I discovered why my attacker was charging me only moments earlier.

He had a mate and she was dying. She was beside the puddle where he landed. Sitting close beside her, he opened and closed his wings as if to fan her. I could only admire the love and courage of that butterfly in his concern for his mate. He had taken it upon himself to attack me for his mate's sake, even though she was clearly dying and I was so large. He did so just to give her those extra few precious moments of life, should I have been careless enough to step on her.





Now I knew why and what he was fighting for. There was really only one option left for me. I carefully made my way around the puddle to the other side of the path, though it was only inches wide and extremely muddy. His courage in attacking something thousands of times larger and heavier than himself just for his mate's safety justified it. I couldn't do anything other than reward him by walking on the more difficult side of the puddle. He had truly earned those moments to be with her, undisturbed. I left them in peace for those last few moments, cleaning the mud from my boots when I later reached my car.

Since then, I've always tried to remember the courage of that butterfly whenever I see huge obstacles facing me. I use that butterfly's courage as an inspiration and to remind myself that good things are worth fighting for.

Butterflies & God

Today I saw two butterflies
Floating through the air
When I beheld their beauty
I knew God made this pair
Such tiny little bodies

Holding up their wings
Only God Almighty
Could make such precious things

Yes - It was God who made them both
God who set them free
He did the same with all mankind
Including you and me



Butterflies don't have a choice
No path that they must choose
They just fulfill the Lord's intent
They cannot win or lose

Life for us is different
It isn't quite the same
For we can turn our backs on God
To play the devil's game

But if we choose the devil's path
The cost is much to high
For satan will destroy our lives
Then laugh the day we die



I am one who's made my choice
I shall not play the game
I will serve the Lord each day
To glorify His name
He's given me the breath of life
Put sight into my eyes
And when He wants to see my smile
He shows me butterflies

Since that day I made that choice
I've seen life differently
For now I see the things of God
The things He's done for me.

Thank You Jesus!

is here below -
when all other words fail to come
just repeat the words here in prayer
and God knows all the rest
seek Him and You will know
eternal peace..
comfort and rest
in all your times of sorrows...

He longs to hold you
as you pass through this valley
and give you a newer & fresher vision
in the upcoming days & nights;
He prepares mighty and great things
that you have not yet seen!

Trust and Obey,
in heaven there will be no more tears
nor death, nor suffering
all things will be past'
we will be reunited
with all those we lost here
through death on earth.

Know This He Hears & understands
He hasn not forgotten you!
He sits beside you
often carrying you too
when your load seems to heavy to carry
or when your world seems to be so dark
or sudden changes left you all alone

Well- Now He will bring to past
a brighter future
Like you have not known before.
Just call upon Him day or night
because MY CHILD
HE LOVES YOU SO VERY MUCH
Hold on tight to Him
in silence & allow Him to be Your source
of rest, comfort, and hope 4 ever.

He seen how you try to hold up strong for all
yet inside you is a wall about to cave in..

He sees your inner pain,
wondering if there is a brighter tomorrow
or will those you love be blessed in their needs
or how much longer can you go on like this?!

Just remember- In HIM IS YES AND AMEN
He will bless you regardless of your fears
or times of stress and anxieties
because He is Love and will not fail His own!
Just repeat this prayer below,
Draw strength from His words and His people
and His Holy Spirit which tenderly guides you on.

Hallowed be thy name.
10-Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth,
as it is in heaven. 11-Give us this day our daily bread.
12-And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
13-And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, for ever.
Amen.


Psalm 27:1 and 3
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread?

Numbers 14:21
But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord

Jeremiah 29:11
-For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

A song Which Speaks so well Of Jesus

He Was There All The Time

Time after time
I went searching for peace in some bar
I was trying to blame all my ills
on this world I was in
oh surface relations used me
till I was done in, yanno all the while
someone was waiting to free me from my sins
He was there all the time
waiting patiently in line,
so patiently in line..
He was there all the time..
my Lord Jesus
He was there all the time.

Never again will I look for a faith
with rainbows in it,
yanno I found that answer
somehow my life is just starting
just starting to begin!
sharing each new day with him
is a cup of fresh life
oh but I been weak
but he has been waiting
right there all the time



"This one thing I do,
forgetting those things which are behind,
and reaching forth unto those things
which are before,
I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high calling of God
in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13,14" KJV
