What a creative Maker we have!  Amazing isn’t He?

This video reminded me of two passages of scriptures….I hope you will consider them, and ask, along with me,  how are we like the chameleon?

Ephesians 4:14 –

…that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting…

Ephesians 6:10, 12 – 13

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil…. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.





P.S. –

After this had been posted, I was told by my

reliable sis-in-love, who is an optician, that this video

is an advertisement for a company selling sun glasses.

I have to say I was disappointed, but it still

doesn’t change that fact that God IS amazing!

And it’s a lot of fun to watch the video anyway….

Just wanted you to know.
