Missing Pieces


I saw this beautiful butterfly on my orange Zinnias today, as I was mowing my back yard. He did not seem to mind as I got very close with my iPhone to get a few photos. Later, when I looked at the photos I noticed he had the outer edge of his right wing missing as well as one of the tail pieces.  I had to think how this butterfly is just like us with all of our flaws and missing pieces. Best of all, I saw it did not make it any less beautiful at all. With all of our flaws, we too are still beautiful, created in the image of God.

Beautiful creature

Even with missing pieces

We are still worthwhile

The Missing Piece


The Missing Piece

You might be the missing piece to someone else’s puzzle

The one they’ve been searching for all their life

A friend who helps connect the dots in life’s puzzle

One who brings sweet harmony to your song of the day

You may be the missing piece of someone else’s puzzle

The one who brings stability and strength into their life

Providing confidence and self-esteem to their struggles

Absorbing some of the negative energy they endure

You might be the piece to someone else’s puzzle

The soulmate connection one has dreamed of for years

The piece that fits just like the Yin and Yang perfect opposites

So perfectly matched that the circle of life seems complete

Creating an energy flow of chemistry and spirit

You might be the missing piece of someone else’s life

The Word made flesh bringing light and hope to their spirit

A piece that connects them to God reflecting grace and peace

Bringing you both into a common brotherhood in Christ

You might be the missing piece
