The Blue Butterfly

The Blue Butterfly MovieAuthor: Cynthia A. Silk

Last night I was on Amazon.com looking for something to watch when I came across a move called ‘The Blue Butterfly’.  This morning when I was in my kitchen making coffee my cat was sitting on her cat tree looking out the window that faces a lake.  She started to meow so I went up to her to see if she was alright as she has been sick lately.  Then I noticed a blue winged butterfly flying over the lake towards the flowers on the path next to it.  I managed to get a couple of pictures of it before it flew away across the lake.  I knew it to be a sign that miracles really do happen!

The Blue Butterfly tells the extraordinary story of a 10-year-old boy, diagnosed as terminally ill, whose dream is to catch the most beautiful butterfly on Earth, the mythic and elusive Blue Morpho. His mother persuades a renowned entomologist (William Hurt) to take them on a trip to the Costa Rican rain forest to search for the butterfly, leading to an adventure that will transform their lives.

Letters To God

Letters To GodThe story of what happens when one boy’s walk of faith crosses paths with one man’s search for meaning-the resulting transformational journey touches the lives of everyone around them. Tyler Doherty is an extraordinary eight-year-old boy. Surrounded by a loving family and community, and armed with the courage of his faith, he faces his daily battle against cancer with bravery and grace.

To Tyler, God is a friend, a teacher and the ultimate pen pal-Tyler’s prayers take the form of letters, which he composes and mails on a daily basis. The letters find their way into the hands of Brady McDaniels, a beleaguered postman standing at a crossroads in his life. At first, he is confused and conflicted over what to do with the letters. But the decision he ultimately makes becomes a testament to the quiet power of one boy’s shining spirit and unshakable faith.
