Caterpillar or Butterfly?

I came across a very interesting quote while surfing around today.... it said:

"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a beautiful butterfly."

I love it. Just when we are at the end of our ropes, something waits for us just beyond the horizon that moves us to bigger and better things. More beautiful things. What a comforting reminder that just when we are at the end of our earthly journey a beautiful heaven awaits us. In the midst of my day to day activities I seem to forget that. I allow myself to get caught up and worried about what may lie ahead for me and my family. I know that is not how God wants me to live my life and I strive to leave my anxious and worrisome mind behind me but sometimes life gets the best of me. Instead I want to get the best out of life. I am slowly progressing but much like a caterpillar I am in a stage....sooner or later I will get there- lol.
