Beware of falling iguanas! While not a warning that we would hear in Nova Scotia, it has been a reality in Florida lately. 

It seems that with the recent unseasonable cold snap in Florida, the cold-blooded reptiles are freezing and falling out of the trees that they sleep in at night.  Some weather reports in the state actually include iguana alerts.

Imagine for a moment being out for your early morning walk and having a frozen iguana fall on you. I would suspect it would be a bit of shock. Unless, of course, you had been paying attention to the iguana alerts.

Now, for those of you who are thinking, “poor iguanas”, scientists assure us that in most cases the hapless lizards are fine once they warm up in the daytime sun.

Scientists have offered several different theories about how and why these cold-blooded creatures can survive the dramatic temperature swings, but they ignore the obvious. That’s how God created them.

Three thousand years ago, King David wrote, Psalm 139:14 “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvellous—how well I know it.”

It would be kind of vain to think that humanity was the only part of creation that is wonderfully complex and marvellous.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
