Cindi's Frogs

Many of you know that my sweet Sister In Law recently passed away.
Cindi has one of the largest collection of frogs I have ever seen.
I believe that God uses these times to teach us many things.
So here is just one of that many lessons that I learned this week.
Surround yourself with things that make you happy.
And never forget
to tell the ones you love
what they mean to you!

Hi!
I love this post! That is a simple but great thought.
Even with all you go thru, you are such an encouragement to others.
Take care

Oh Becky, Thank you for your words of wisdom and inspiration. So very true, and poignant at this difficult time.

As a little aside...FROG can mean Fully Rely On God. Have you ever heard that? Thought it was interesting when combined with her collection and what you are all dealing with right now.

With heartfelt sympathy for your brother, you, and all whose life this has touched.

May God give you His peace,
Blessings,
Becky

Becky, I have thought of you and your family so often in the last few weeks.

I love that we have learned to let frogs represent to fully rely on God.

Thank you so much for sharing yourself - and for this special post.

Hey Becky, you ask about the dishes on my blog with the bird? I don't know anything about them, I just thought they looked interesting so I took a picture of them. Sorry!

My husband a couple years ago, was in a motorcycle accident, and It made me realize I could of lost him just like that! I never want to take anybody for granted. Life in itself is a very short time here on earth! That's why we need to be right with the Lord in truth, for the sake of our salvation.
