Spread Your Wings and Fly

Spread Your Wings

Photo taken by Rainey who suffers from severe depression, and has a daughter with bipolar disorder. Every day is a struggle for both of them.

About this photo: “This photograph was taken while I was traveling along the coast last summer. I use my camera to seek beauty in the world. I love this image because it reminds me that I am much like a butterfly; fragile yet beautiful, and able to grow and change as I fly toward a better life.”

    Butterfly, a metamorphosis… it was in a cocoon of depression and once you come out, off you… free and beautiful.

    Beautiful butterfly — When you see a butterfly it means, “Hope for the future.” God’s way of giving you encouragement! Seek God and learn deliverance.
    May you have a Blessed New Year!
