A classic story of morals infers, “What killed the frog was its own inability to decide when it had to jump out of boiling water.”
True enough, our instincts at times deceive us. But in such moments, are we helpless? Not at all.
I may not have lived long enough yet nor do have a great number of outstanding accounted-for confirmation to prove that we are never alone. My mere existence, and yours, is tangible proof and enough evidence that everything comes about at the right time in the right place – so fashionably and lovingly orchestrated by our Creator.
