For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.–Romans 8:38-39

Eating a Live Frog


I love the island we live on. The weather and people are warm. It’s home now, and I love coming back to it when I’ve been away for a while.

But one of the things I least like about Cayman, is the FROGS! They hang out over my doorframe. They flop on the window and slide their slimy bodies down the front door to catch their prey. They sleep in the day, and at night, they pop up just when you least expect it. They make a mess, they’re ugly, and… I could go on. Let’s just leave it at “I REALLY don’t like frogs.”

So, as surprising as it is…on Monday…I’m going to try and…EAT a live frog! That’s right. You heard it. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know how it goes! Pray for a Sistah!
