Uh! A live frog? Wonder if it would taste like chicken?
Now, there is something appealing about getting the worst part of your day over with early. But eating a live frog! Certainly doesn’t sound very positive, does it?
So, let’s see if we can find a better way, a positive way to start the day. No surprise here, start the day by reading a portion of a good book… THE Good Book. Lots of ways to get into this habit. Daily devotionals, preparing for a bible study, just letting it fall open to some passage. However you do it, do it. Make it a routine, get into the habit.
Another positive thing is to have a quiet, one-on-one chat with a friend, your Best Friend. Spend some time alone in prayer and meditation.
For the past two days, yesterday and today, I didn’t do that. I’ve been sorta out of kilter. After the way my life has changed over this past year, this seems very strange to me. I don’t like it much.
When asked how I am doing, my constant response has become “It’s another day in paradise.” Mostly people think that is just a flip response, I suppose, but it is not. When I start the day in communion with Jesus, I know, feel that He is right there with me. And He is. Glory be.
So, eating a live frog! That seems to prepare us to face a day full of negitives. Why on earth, errrr… in paradise would we want to set ourselves up for that?
Much better to set ourselves up for a good day. Another day in paradise.
Now, I do like chicken. But a live frog? No thanks.
