The Frog and the Floodlights
Today's blog entry comes from Gary Hupfer, a friend of Creation Moments who happened to notice something unusual going on outside his house the night before last. We'll let Gary tell it in his own words:
Just when you think you've seen and heard it all, a program like Creation Moments opens your eyes and shows what you are missing. Where we live, there are small frogs, about the size of the tip of one's thumb, called spring peepers. They have special feet that enable them to climb walls and even glass windows. We observed one last night that climbed the side of our house, up to the motion-sensor floodlights, then moved across the sensor which turned on the lights. It then sat on top of the sensor, happily eating insects that were attracted to the light. When the lights "timed out" and turned off, the little frog moved across the sensor and turned them back on again. This went on for over an hour, until the bloated frog climbed down the house and went back to the pond!
To those of us who believe in biblical creation, a story like this just underscores the fact that even a frog the size of a thumbnail can bring glory to the awesome God who created it!
