If a frog like this one would jump on someone or if it somehow got squished when a car drives over it the experience would be unpleasant. If someone throws a frog at you it could make you scream and run. When you see a frog from a distance as it is twirling around on a bleach bottle in a pool of water you just might laugh. I laughed when I saw this frog swirling around in a pool of water today. It was hilarious. It looked as though this frog found its own little haven of safety from the storm. Genesis 1:20-23 (KJV), ” And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.” I believe God created the heavens and the earth, mankind, and every creature that lives on this earth.
I did have a sense of wonder strike me when I saw that frog today. It is amazing the way it found that shelter. It was patiently waiting or resting until it could be free of the waters that surrounded it.
Frogs may not wonder how they will get out of a predicament the way we would be wondering about it but somehow they know how to protect themselves from harm when they can find ways to do that.
How did it get to the neck of that bleach bottle like that? Do you think the Lord let that happen simply to amuse us?
