The Frog in the Bathroom

April 12, 2013 in Mini Moments

First of all, let me apologize for my woeful presence here lately.  I’ve been engaged in writing several books at once.  I’m winding up some of those projects and wanted to get back to you today because I have an interesting dilemma.  Currently, there’s a frog in my bathroom!  Yes, a frog!  I’m not sure how he got in there, but it appears he has magical qualities and can virtually fly from one space to another, so I didn’t stay long for a chat.  When I discovered his tiny presence in the toilet bowel of all places, I was a bit stunned.  Fortunately, I saw him from a distance.  Thinking I might just hit the lever and send him back out into the world or wherever the water drains into, I thought I could remedy the problem quickly.  That’s when I learned he could fly.  In an instant, he was on the opposite wall from the commode, and thus started our dance to see whether the frog or the princess would win the day.  Alas, failing several moves that I’d prefer not to share, let me say, that somewhere in my dressing room closet, there is now a petite flying frog.  I’ve closed the door for the moment.  It may turn out that I have to wear the same outfit for several days until I get brave enough to peek back in there.

One never anticipates a frog showing up in the bathroom.  I live in Florida, so I do sometimes find little creatures scurrying across the floor, but thankfully, that is a rare occurrence.  Perhaps the lesson in this is that we can not always anticipate what comes next.  We might find ourselves totally dumbfounded or blind-sided.  I don’t know yet how this story will end, though Kermit might have some ideas for me.  I don’t know if God answers prayers about flying frogs in your bathroom, but when faced with any dilemma, especially one that is so out of my comfort level, I have no choice, but to ask God to deal with his little creature.  Whether he thinks that’s me or the frog doesn’t really matter.  All I know is that when I’m faced with big things or little flying things, I have to hope God has a solution.

Of course, if any of you know how to get a flying frog out of my closet, and maybe get him to join a circus, well, then I would appreciate your thoughts.

Hope you’re all doing well.  I will be visiting with you here a bit more often now.

Much joy to you today.
