BUTTERFLY MIGRATION FACTS
the last generation of the summer migrates south,
because the rest do not live long enough. Statistics say
this is probably the largest generation, and also
probably has the highest mortality rate before it
reproduces the following summer.

migrate before they are completely matured. Even though
they look just like normal adults, they are not sexually

+ Up to
100 million Monarch butterflies migrate either to
California or to Mexico each year.
Eastern populations migrate to Florida, the Texas coast,
and in Mexico.
Monarch butterflies follow the same migration patterns

flapping their wings. They are dependent upon the wind
current going in the right direction.
energy they need for the long trip comes from the
milkweed they ate as caterpillars and the nectar from
their winter abode, they cluster together creating a
shingle effect that protects them from the bugs and the
rain. Each butterfly hangs with its wings over the
butterfly beneath it, and so on - just like a roof! This

are quite a few entries in Annie’s Visions that speak of
2 different groups of people: those that are above the
storm and those that are beneath. The Lord tells her
that only those who have come into their inherited
possession will have the storm beneath their feet. One
of the purposes of the storm is to bring all His own
into their inherited possessions.
studying her visions and praying over their
interpretation for many years, I have come to believe
there are at least 3 criteria for placement. The first
may be the timing of when a person was naturally born
and how long they have been a Christian. The second is
how quickly a person submits to the Lord, laying down
their rebellion and yielding themselves to the training
process of death to self. Last is the appointment of
their calling and placement, because in a couple of her
visions the Lord tells her that those who are above the
storm have the task of helping and working with those
beneath the storm.

advantage of their personal storms, believing Me through
them, will rise in faith above the world’s darkest
storm. They will have learned that each storm brings
promotion, and each storm has its reward. They learn to
rest and soar on the winds of My Presence, and relax
their faith as they let Me carry them to a warmer place.
great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat,
so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern,
asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him,
"Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?" Then
He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea,
"Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a
great calm. But He said to them, "Why are you so
fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" And they
feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can
this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"
