THE STORY OF “CHRISTIE” 

THE CATERPILLAR

 

THERE WAS A LITTLE CATERPILLAR...

CRAWLING ON THE GROUND....

SHE WAS FEELING FEARFUL...

THINKING SHE'D GET "SMUSHED"!~

'TIL IN HER EAR...

SHE SEEMED TO HEAR...

A REASSURING SOUND...

THAT SAID.: 

"SOMEDAY YOU'LL CHANGE...

BUT DON'T GET RUSHED!~

JUST SPIN A BIT OF SAFETY NET

...AROUND YOU ON A LIMB...

KEEP WRAPPING UP...

INTO A TIGHT COCOON...~

THEN SNUGGLE DOWN AND GROW INSIDE...

UNTIL YOU'RE NICE AND BIG....

I'LL TELL YOU WHEN TO STRUGGLE....

NOT TOOOO SOON!"~

WELL, SHE FOLLOWED GOD'S INSTRUCTIONS...

& SHE CLIMBED OUT ON A LIMB...

WHERE SHE SPUN

 A GRAND AND WONDROUS LITTLE BED!~

 AND THEN......SHE LAID SO QUIETLY...

THAT ANYONE PASSING BY

WOULD SURELY THINK...

IT'S CONTENTS...MUST BE DEAD!~

 

 A LONG TIME PASSED.................

SHE AWOKE...AT LAST...

AND SHE HEARD GOD SAY:

"IT'S TIME...

TO STRETCH...

AND CHEW YOUR WAY OUT

 NOW...JUST TRY...~

& VERY SOON YOU'LL SEE....

YOU'RE FREE...

TO MOVE AROUND & CLIMB...OUT...

SO YOU CAN TRY

YOUR BRAND NEW WINGS...AND FLY!"~

 

YOU'LL NEVER, EVER DREAM THE VIEW...

FROM UP THERE IN THE SKY!..~

IT’S TWICE AS WONDROUS...

AS THE EARTH BELOW...~

BUT IF YOU'LL FOLLOW ORDERS...

LIKE THAT LITTLE BUTTERFLY...~

YOU'LL SEE..THE WONDROUS

 BLESSINGS GOD BESTOWS~

UPON EACH TRUSTING CREATURE...

WHO WILL FOLLOW AND OBEY...

THE PLANS GOD HAS

 TO HELP THEM LEARN AND GROW…~
