A Frog from God

A few weeks ago Angel needed a frog for biology dissection.  The kids set off for the pond and found these frog eggs.  

Upon return a week or so later, they found these tadpoles.

They brought some home "to grow".  However, after a week or so, they decided to release them.  Later that week, The Farmer, Riley and Ruben went back to the lake and found a large leopard frog.  Angel was ever grateful, but felt torn as to whether or not she should kill the frog and how to go about it.  She decided to sleep on it.  That night a big rain came.  The next morning when she opened the door to go out and do chores, right outside the garage door was a large deceased leopard frog.  She was so excited!  They were able to release the live frog and use the dead to complete the biology lab.  

A few days later, the kids and I were thrift saling with my sister.  I was witnessing to her about how we were blessed with what the Lord has provided our family.  Angel piped in and told the story of the frog.  She was so sure that God had answered her prayer and provided that frog.  It was awesome to see her conviction.  Her enthusiasm was very powerful.  My sister didn't quite know what to say.  God is good!  

"Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for.  Keep on seeking, and you will find.  Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you .  For everyone who asks, receives.  Everyone who seeks, finds.  And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened."  Matthew 7:7-8
