Has God called you on a Schmetterling Journey?

Just what is that anyway? It is the journey He leads us on as we place our lives and our trust and our faith in Him. He changes us, transforms us into a creature worthy of awe, not because we're awe inspiring but because we bare his mark. Once we have been touched by God we carry with us a mark on our soul that says "I can never again be content unless I am walking in His perfect will because I have known the Master and have felt the peace He brings." The amazing thing is that this mark is visible to all mankind, saved and unsaved. Even the lost know that God's children have something they want. On this journey to becoming what He wants us to be we fatten ourselves on His word, shed the old ways of the flesh, feel the embrace of His care and eventually spread our wings and fly. But an interesting note about this Schmetterling journey, a butterfly who cannot find food is a dead butterfly. Let us seek the feeding of the spirit so that our wings may soar like eagles and let us all use our gifting to feed the new Schmetterlings we find along the way.

"17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Cornithians 5:17 NKJV

While my posts may range a broad spectrum of biblical and practical topics, my desire is that God would be glorified in my words and that I would encourage all who come to embrace their own Schmetterling Journey with their Lord and Master.

Come and walk with me.


  1. Hi Staci - this looks great! And I feel like I just got to know you a little better. By the way - I used cloth diapers on all my kids, and I'm convinced it made it WAY easier to potty train them - who wants a cold wet diaper on!! (the paper ones never even let them feel the discomfort of being wet!!) Plus, I actually liked folding them. (My mom taught me the 'kite' fold, which probably made a clean dry diaper pretty comfortable.)
    Ooops - I'm rattling on! :) Anita

  2. thanks Anita! that's the beauty of this online stuff, we can write things out when our time allows and others can read when their time allows. Many people I miss out on simply because of business. And you're not rambling! I like comments and you're helping someone with your words. What is a "kite" fold. Do share!

  3. I'd be happy to show you! It's folded a lot like making a kit, so the part that comes up around the legs is on a bias - you can have it fit really snug, but it's not uncomfortable. Slightly different ways of doing the fold, depending on whether it's for a girl or a boy, so the most padding is right where it's needed. :)

  4. Anita that sounds really interesting. I'd be delighted to learn. I curently am using some PUL snap on covers so I cheat and just triple fold a prefold diaper and lay it in the cover. But when I switch bag to my wool covers I'll need to know a tighter or snugger fitting diaper.

  5. The title of this blog used to be Schmetterling Journey. While the theme and purpose is still the same, I changed the name to make it more understandable for the majority of people. Please continue on with me in the schmetterling journey!
