A Surprising Hitchhiker: An Angel Message

Last night's much needed rains delivered a surprise this morning.  With a break in the weather, Elliot and I were getting into the car to pick up our mail, when he discovered a special delivery.  Opening the driver's side of the car, he was taken aback by an amazing sight. 

As I climbed in on the passenger side, I heard him, exclaim, "Look!  A brown frog!" 

I got out to take a look, expecting to find a fat frog in a puddle by the car.

To my surprise, a baby tree frog was clinging to the inside car door jamb! 

Somehow he was alive, safe, holding on tight with his tiny suction-cup fingers and toes.  He must have hunkered down in the heavy rains during the night. 

The greater mystery, how did he get in there?!

At least Elliot saw our surprising passenger before shutting the car door again.

 With a friendly little prod, our little hitchhiker took a leap on the driveway, and was off on his next adventure.  We laughed, remembering the acronym for F.R.O.G  is: (F)ully (R)ely (O)n (G)od!

The entire life of a frog is a symbol of transition.  The tadpole must lose its tail and grows legs to become a frog so it can navigate both on land and in water.  A reminder that those things we lose during transformation bring an opportunity to become something better. 

So during these times of tremendous change, it is a wonderful reminder to keep fully relying on God.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,
