From adversity to Triumph

Go thru now; come out on the other side later
A loving husband, a devoted wife, a well learnt daughter.
This method does not only work for relationships
But on this, take the time to ponder and see the end result.
This matter is plain to see; most people do stop and wonder. 

A mind baffling thought to see a hairy caterpillar 
Transformed into the most beautiful butterfly. So 
Beautiful a pleasure to see. Before it gets to that stage
The struggle and challenge must begin. Later on this colorful 
Butterfly emerge to life, enjoying flowers and lush green hills

This metaphor is an example so we can see, to get on in life things
Would not always be easy. Sometimes it’s a struggle, laughter and
 Pain, adversity is a part of life, and triumph comes at last, all good to gain.

    And sometime look pretty ugly until the metamorphis. Praise God for the change. Like the way you presented the idea. Keep writing. Sara
