The Guardian Angel and the Frog

I've often written about the acronym for FROG. It was in a newsletter several years ago.

"I was told a story about a lady in the hospital who was near death when an area chaplain came to visit her. This chaplain was a very young female with long blond hair. She listened to the lady who was ill and left her a small gift for comfort. It was a tiny ceramic frog.

The next day one of the people from the lady's church came to visit. The lady told her friend about the beautiful young chaplain who had come to visit her. The friend was so impressed with the way the lady had improved and felt the need to talk to the young chaplain. In her search to find the young girl, she was repeatedly reassured that the chaplains are never very young and there was never a young girl that fit the description.

Upon returning to the lady in the hospital, a visiting nurse entered the room and noticed the ceramic frog. The nurse made the comment, "I see you have a guardian angel with you." As she held the little frog we asked why she made the comment and were told that frog stands for
(F)ully (R)ely (O)n (G)od."

Enjoy your day with the Angels,
