And the end of all of our exploring

leaving it dry and lifeless.

to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,

for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."

Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.
