After the passing of my great-niece in 2012, from colon cancer at age 28, I began seeing an orange butterfly in my backyard. Days later my sister, the grandmother of my great-niece, began seeing butterflies. I thought to myself, “I need to google the symbolic meaning of the butterfly.” I found that it means “resurrection, our souls, the passing of a loved one” — so I shared this with my sister.
I was so enlightened by God’s creation. I believe that I am reminded through the butterfly that my niece is with God. That her spirit has transcended into eternity. It’s sad to say that in December 2014 my 46-year-old daughter passed away, cause undetermined. She was not sick, only that she had a crushed foot injury that was trying to heal, and may have caused a blood clot.
During her last years of life, she loved butterflies and often expressed this to me. Now I see two white butterflies in my backyard. They are always together. I’m of sound mind. I talk to them through the spirit that I have within me.
I am so happy to know that my two angels — my daughter and my niece — have butterflies that visit me, carrying their spirit of visitation and remembrance. Amazingly, my husband noticed the two butterflies today. He didn’t know what I am telling you. I shared all that I read with him. We believe as Christians and we celebrate our butterflies.
