Country Frog Huntin’

One last story about our mini-vacation that I wanted to share with you:

We had many opportunities to take life at a simpler pace. So if you could take life at a simpler pace what would you do?

Frog catching, of course!!!

Matt set aside his morning devotions Bible on our walk back from the wooden bench swing to return to his childhood.

Despite nearly catching one poor, slimy victim (he grazed through Matt’s hand), our frog-hunting experience did not produce “a big one for the camera.”-

I’m sure my one-hit-wonder theme song “Water Serpent” didn’t aid in Matt’s catching success.  Oh you haven’t heard that wonderful song? You poor, deprived people. Well I’ll share the lyrics with you…

“Water serpent… coming to bite your face off.
Water serpent… out of the mud.
Water serpent… coming to bite your face off.
Water serpent… he’ll drink your blood.” 

Now do you see why Matt’s concentration could have been slightly off?

He’s still my hero regardless. 😉


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
