frog in the pond

Day 99 Their land swarmed with frogs,

There is the  start of a summer feel about this week. It is starting to be warm in the UK. I’ve even started to wear shorts, which is not very often. But more of a telling sign that it is getting warmer is the fact that there is frogs and frogs spawn in our pond again. It’s absolutely amazing how each year these frogs come back and our pond and garden swarms with frogs, perhaps not to the degree that pharaoh had when he held back the Egyptians.

Psalm 105:30

Their land swarmed with frogs,
    even in the chambers of their kings.

I don’t see frogs swarming my pond as a bad thing, far from it as I relish the new life that is created there each year. At the end of the season they seem to mysteriously disappear as they go into hibernation, usually under a rubber matter which was a waterfall but is not not working. I try to warn the children not to mess about too much in the pond area as in the first few weeks this is a precious fragile time for the frogs and they can be stressed out.

If you or me were going to put our newly born son into the world we would probably put them in a secure place were he will get much help, but God didn’t want any favours I suppose when He sent His only son and incarnated Him into a fragile baby boy, who was born in a rather raw setting.

Flowers are coming into full bloom and colour is here. Even though God’s glory is evident in nature it is not enough to save you in the next life. Clearly it may lead you to question about the existence of God but that is all.

Psalm 105

1 Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
    make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
    tell of all his wondrous works!

So I pray that you may be joyful that new life was sent to this world in the little baby Jesus, and new life at Easter as Jesus rose from the dead so that we may believe through the witnesses at the time. Think of the cross and the sacrifice and then think of the rebirth and that our sins can be cast away into the tomb with Jesus and we can be reborn with Him to a new life – if we accept with our heart and confess with our lips that Jesus is our Lord and Saviour.

Amen

with blessings

Graham
