I wrote about butterflies in my last blog- messengers of hope. If you missed it and would like to read it, click here: messages-of-hope.htmlhttps://www.ggwatercolors.com/blog/messages-of-hope
As I wrote it, I didn't know why I continued to see butterflies everywhere, and what it could mean.
Since that time, the suffering and attack of people I know and love has multiplied significantly, in a way that makes my heart ache for their unimaginable losses, their heartbreak, despair and suffering, and fighting terminal illness.
These people I know and love continue, in the face of it all, to love and spread their light on a daily basis. To see good in the world, and put one foot in front of the other. My heart grieves and yet is astounded by their great well of faith, the ability to see beauty in the world even in the most desperate. despairing of times, and all in a world that is preoccupied with fighting and ugliness.
I have continued to paint my butterflies as respite and as a form of prayer to send out to the world and I would like to send out these colorful messengers of hope and prayer and beauty to anyone who interested.
Beginning this Friday the 25th of September, until I run out of butterflies, I will do a drawing and give away one of my butterfly paintings. I will draw out of my list of email subscribers, so just go to the box below to sign up.
With love and gratitude- Gretchen
