FROG

I publish this today, not just as a cool picture, but actually as a Sunday message.
I have a sister, Lillie, who loves frogs. She collects them. Not live frogs actually, but figurines, plush frogs, mugs with frogs, frog shaped lamps, etc. It wasn't until one of my other sisters (I can't remember if it was Lydia or Carrie) explained to me that I understood why Lillie loves frogs so much.
You see, FROG stands for Forever Remember Our God. So frogs aren't just a cute thing to collect, they are a reminder to Lillie to remember God.
So when you see this picture, (and it is a picture that should catch your attention), don't just think about the huge frog and the cute kid holding it, think about God who made that frog, and gave that boy parents who encourage him to explore the back yard and bring the things he finds inside. Think about the God who made you, and loves you, and wants to help you find joy and happiness in your life.
I hope you don't need frogs to remind you to remember God. (I can assure you God doesn't need any reminders to remember you). But whenever you see a frog, a live one, a plush one, a beanie baby frog, or a frog shaped lamp, remember God. He really does love you.
Note: If you would like to learn more about God's love for you, please leave a comment. I have some good friends who would love to share His message with you.
