The Frog


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 gal, she was repeatedly reassured that the chaplains are never very young and that there was never a gal that fit the description given. 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 we were informed that the frog stood for:
(F) Forever (R) Rely (O) On (G) God
To The World You Might Be One Person; But To One Person You Might Be the World.

I just visited Hunting Island, S.C. and Beaufort, S.C. Is Beaufort, N.C. close to there? Just curious!

Also, how can I get the Free Mammogram Button onto my blog?
