Planting A Tree

A while back, my Mom and Dad planted a tree on a friends property. It is a flowering pear tree. (not the eating kind of pear tree). This tree was planted to remember the friend's son, who had passed away suddenly, a week earlier. He was just a young guy, and it was very unexpected. On the ground, is a frog stepping stone. It says FROG, which means, Fully Rely On God! The parents of this young man had never heard of this saying, but they are indeed, fully relying on God as they heal. My Mom says, everyone should remember this, when ever they see a frog!
Many Lovies, to this friend, and all the people we know in our life,
Miss Mindy

I know they have a long journey ahead of them and I'm sure the tree and frog will help them through this difficult time.

What a sweet way to remember your friend's son!
How very sad to pass away young!
But you're right, the best way is to trust in God for healing!
