Liberating the Frogs

No this didn’t happen today or a couple of days ago. Toads would have been toast or icefrogs. This happened a few summers ago. Thought the thought of summer things would be encouraging today. Have fun with the toads!

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire, he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth and a hymn of praise to our God.” Ps. 40:1-3

Frogs! Lots of them in the basement window well. One was sitting like a statue, staring longingly at the spider that reclined happily on its web on the inside of the glass. Stupid frogs! I said to myself as I went back upstairs to finish the dishes. Don’t they know they’ll die in that hole? Eventually when the bugs run out and there is no water. Don’t they know they are caught, imprisoned, captured and trapped? Stupid frogs.
Well, they were just frogs after all so I wasn’t going to worry about them. Let them take care of themselves. However…

Suffering of Job part 2

Prairie Wind


*“Soft as the voice of an angel, breathing a lesson unheard

Hope with a gentle persuasion, whispers a comforting word.

Wait till the darkness is over, wait till the tempests is done

Hope for the sunshine tomorrow after the darkness is gone.

Whispering Hope oh how welcome Thy voice

Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.”

            Like a tornado rampaging through the land, troubles whirled into Job’s life tearing everything he held dear to smithereens.  His wealth, his livestock, his servants and, even worse, all of his children gone in the blink of an eye.  It was enough to knock even a strong man of faith to the ground.

Then one day in the glorious throne room of God the heavenly court of angels presented themselves before the Lord.  Once again Satan, the Accuser went with them.

“Where have you been?”  God asked Satan.

“I have been…

Sufferings of Job part 1

Prairie Wind


*O worship the King,

All glorious above.

And gratefully sing

His power and His love.

Our Shield and Defender

The Ancient of Days,

Pavilion in splendor

And girded with praise.

O tell of His might,

O sing of His grace,

whose robe is the light,

whose canopy is space.

His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form.

Dark is His path on the wings of the storm.

        One day in Heaven at the throne of God, surrounded by vibrant colors like a rainbow, angels of the Heavenly court presented themselves to God.  Satan the Accuser came with them, no doubt to point out the faults of God’s children on earth.

            However God beat him to the draw, “So Satan,” God said, “have you seen my servant Job?  He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless, a man of…

This is the final part of the Redemption Series on Noah and the flood.

Prairie Wind



“You covered the earth with the deep as with a garment. The waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke, they fled, at the voice of Your thunder they hastened away. They went up over the mountains, they went down into the valleys to the place which You founded for them. You have set a boundary that they may not pass over. That they may not return to cover the earth.” Psalm 104:6-9

            This is the day the Lord has made! The day Noah, his family and all the many animals came out of the ark! I can just see it. Can’t you? The sun is shinning, if only briefly, since it is believed that the air was filled with volcanic ash and smoke for many years after the flood, which caused the ice age. But I’m sure on this great day the sun was peeking out of…

“Now I saw Heaven opened and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True. In righteousness He judges and makes war on evil. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelations 19:11,16)

Rain pounded on the roof of the ark. Noah and his family huddled together against a wall on the third deck. Tears ran down their faces, but no one said a word. Since the first tidal wave, no human cries were heard outside the salvation boat. Several more giant waves had hit, rocking and shaking the ship. They knew their friends and family were gone. Forever.

Noah braved a peek out the small window and was astounded at what he saw.

The lowlands below were washed clean of houses or any sign of life. Birds flew in the sky…

            “See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from Heaven, whose voice shook the earth.” Hebrews 12:25

The shaking began deep in the core of the earth. Shock waves vibrated through the rocks, pounding the surface. Cracks began to open all over the face of the earth. Pressure built in the core. Tremors of growing magnitude spread around the globe. A low rumbling could be heard as the earth groaned.


In the middle of the sea, the ocean floor split open all around the earth. Hot lava spewed out of this giant fissure, causing the sea to boil and roil. Shock waves pounded the earth’s surface. Waves began to build and pile on top of each other. The sea…

“After seven days the waters of the flood came and covered the earth. When Noah was 600 years old, on the seventeenth day of the second month, all the underground waters erupted from the earth and rain fell in mighty torrents from the sky.”Genesis 10-11NLT

            Seven long days they waited in the dim interior of the boat. Isn’t it interesting that it took God 7 days to create the earth, the universe and all life on the earth, and He also waited 7 days before destroying all living things on the face of the earth?

All the animals, two of each kind, seven of the clean animals, the ones used for sacrifice and later for food, were in the ship. Noah and his family, eight people were on board and God closed the door and sealed it. No one else could get in.

Then they waited…
